Xu Jiao played the role of a boy in the film CJ7 back in 2008. Out of 10,000 children screened for the part, Hong Kong actor-director Stephen Chow picked her.
Chow played the role of Ti, a poor widower who works long hours at a construction site so he can send his son to a posh school. Ti scours the local junkyard for useful items and comes across what he thinks is an odd-looking toy that he brings home for the boy, who names it CJ7. It soon reveals itself to be something else entirely.
Xu Jiao is now all grown up. Here are some of her stunning pictures shared online.
