She went on to star in a number of Chinese films, including Lost in Beijing (2007), Buddha Mountain (2011), and Double Xposure (2012). (2012). Fan won honors for her performance as the lead in the film I Am Not Madame Bovary (2016) at the Golden Horse Film Festival, the Tokyo International Film Festival, the San Sebastián International Film Festival, and the Golden Rooster honors.

Fan was born in Laixi, Yantai (now Qingdao), and reared there. She attended the Shanghai Xie Jin Film and Television Art College as well as the Shanghai Theatre Academy.

1996-2006 Career: Early Roles and Cell Phone

Fan made her television debut in the series Powerful Woman and played minor roles for two years before receiving notoriety in 1999 for her supporting role as Jin Suo in the first two seasons of the Chinese television series My Fair Princess, which was adapted from the story of Taiwanese writer Chiung Yao. Hong Kong actress Leanne Liu recommended her for the role. The comic period drama was a huge success in Asia, making Fan a household figure there.

Cell Phone, which became China's highest-grossing picture of the year and won critical acclaim at the Hundred Flowers Awards in 2003, starred her. Chiung Yao's business, which produced My Fair Princess, signed Fan to an eight-year contract.

When Fan and her mother attempted to enter into a contract, Chiung Yao's company demanded 1 million RMB in compensation; eventually, the court ordered Fan to pay 200,000 RMB because the contract was illegal owing to Fan's age.

Private life

Looking back at how many children have been helped, it feels like writing a diary - one page a day may not seem like much, but after a while, you hold it and, wow, it is already really thick.

Instance of tax evasion

On May 28, 2018, TV presenter Cui Yongyuan used social media to publish a redacted contract revealing Fan was paid ten million RMB for four days of work on Feng Xiaogang's upcoming film Cell Phone 2. The following day, Cui published a second redacted contract for the same task, indicating that the smaller contract was intended for reporting to tax authorities in order to avoid being taxed for her full remuneration of 60 million RMB.

Fan broke her silence on social media on 3 October 2018, apologizing to the public for tax cheating after Chinese authorities ordered her and her enterprises to pay around 883 million RMB (US$127.4 million) in taxes and penalties in order to escape criminal prosecution.
