Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Instant shining is not eternity. Show business is a hard life. I wonder how many people will remember me after I leave the business for good. My hope is that when they feel bored and look at the stars in the sky, people will think of my name.

Trivia:

Was set to play the rebel leader Nia in House of Flying Daggers (2004) at the time of her death. Out of respect, the role was not recast and the character only appeared in one scene, played by an actress with a similar body type to Anita's, whose face was covered. The film was also dedicated to her. See more »
