The Wax Figure of the World Renowned Chinese Actress Will Remain at Madame Tussauds Washington, DC Through September

Madame Tussauds Washington, DC today welcomed the incredibly lifelike wax figure of acclaimed Chinese actress Li Bingbing. The figure, which was first unveiled by Madame Tussauds Hong Kong in 2012, will be featured alongside other international super stars such as Zac Efron, Angelina Jolie, and Marilyn Monroe.

Each Madame Tussauds figure is truly a work of art, involving teams of professional artists working for months on end to create a finished product. Li Bingbing was instrumental in the figure making process as she met with studio artists for measurements, color matching and styling options. The finished figure is an uncanny match to the beautiful star and is dressed in a gorgeous tailor-made George Chakra white gown, which the actress wore to the 2012 Academy Awards. When Li Bingbing helped unveil the figure in Hong Kong, she was blown away by the attention to detail and incredibly accuracy captured by the Madame Tussauds studio artists.

“We at Madame Tussauds Washington, DC are always excited to offer our visitors a chance to get up close and personal with their favorite stars,” said Therese Alvich, General Manager Madame Tussauds, DC “Li Bingbing is an incredible talent and we are certain her fans will be thrilled to get the chance to see her in DC.”

As an internationally adored actress, Li Bingbing won the Best Actress Awards at the 2008 Hundred Flowers Awards for her outstanding performance in the movie The Knot, as well as the Best Leading Actress Award at the 46th Golden Horse Film Awards for her role in the spy thriller The Message. Her repertoire also features successful films Resident Evil: Retribution and Transformers: Age of Extinction
