Zhang Jingchu (; pinyin: Zhng jngch, born February 2, 1980) is a Chinese film actress. Zhang is best known for winning the China Film Media Award for Best Actress in 2005 for her performance in the film Peacock, which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Zhang was born on February 2, 1980, in Fujian, China. Zhang was raised in the countryside by a middle-class family.

Zhang studied English at the Beijing New Oriental Institute, a private language school in Beijing, China. Zhang earned a Directing diploma from the Central Academy of Drama in Beijing, China.

Zhang's acting career began in 2000, in both film and television. She made the transition to international films in 2005. Zhang rose to international prominence after his debut film, Peacock, won the Silver Bear at the 2005 Berlin International Film Festival. She was chosen from 1,000 applicants for her role as a petulant, devious homebound daughter attempting to forge her own path in life. She then landed a role in Tsui Hark's martial arts film Seven Swords, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in August 2005.

Zhang shed her gentle and quiet image to play the rebellious and brave protagonist in Huayao Bride in Shangri-la (2005), for which she won Best Actress at the Beijing College Student Film Festival. Time magazine named her one of "Asia's Heroes."

Zhang was cast as the tough-talking heroine in A. J. Annila's 2006 Finnish-Chinese kungfu film Jade Warrior. The same year, she starred in Lu Chuan's romantic drama The Road. Zhang won over the audience with her acting maturity and extraordinary ability to touch hearts by interpreting the various stages of a Chinese woman's life. At the 30th Cairo International Film Festival, she was named Best Actress.

Zhang later appeared in Derek Yee's drug-smuggling drama Protégé. (2007). Her portrayal of a woman forced to choose between her drug addiction and herself received praise from both the audience and critics. She made her Hollywood debut in Rush Hour 3 alongside Jackie Chan the same year.

Zhang co-wrote the film John Rabe (2008) with German director Florian Gallenberger, in which she plays a college student whose family suffers during the Japanese invasion of Nanjing.

She then starred in Ann Hui's film Night and Fog, a social commentary film about Chinese immigrants to Hong Kong. Her portrayal of the protagonist Ling, a woman dealing with an abusive husband, received critical acclaim and was dubbed a "turning point" in her career. The same year, she appeared in Red River as a mentally challenged Vietnamese girl.

Zhang then appeared in Feng Xiaogang's disaster film Aftershock (2010), playing a girl who becomes a rescue worker after being separated from her mother following the Tangshan earthquake. In real life, Zhang assists with earthquake relief efforts. She is an ambassador for the SiyuanAOC Rainbow Plan charity, which was founded by the China Siyuan Foundation for Poverty Alleviation and AOC Monitor.

Zhang then took a six-month hiatus from the entertainment industry, citing her dissatisfaction with the commercial nature of her recent roles. During this time, she served on the Shanghai International Film Festival jury. She made a comeback in the romantic comedy Laucana (2012), co-starring Shawn Yue.

She co-starred in the 2013 action thriller Switch with Andy Lau. She also co-starred with Luca Barbareschi in the Italian film The Mercury Factor. Zhang was on location in Jerusalem in April 2013 for the film The Old Cinderella. This was the first joint film project between China and Israel since their diplomatic relations were established. Zhang's next appearance was in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. (2015). She was cast in the film adaptation of the best-selling novel The Three-Body Problem the same year.

Zhang appeared in the thriller film Once Upon a Time in Northeast China in 2017 as well as the crime action film Wings Over Everest.
