Trivia:

Due to an injury, she was close to drop out of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000). However, Ang Lee was so eager to have her play the part, that the production was postponed for multiple months, while she recovered. Yeoh deliberately did not work for a year before filming began so she could concentrate on training and learning Mandarin. See more »
