The actress received a Hong Kong citizenship certificate under the “Quality Migrant Admission Scheme” at the end of January.

Other notable artists who obtained Hong Kong citizenship under this program in recent years include piano prodigies Lang Lang, Li Yundi and actors Hu Jun, Zhang Ziyi and Tang Wei.

Zhou played down the media hype about her citizenship change, saying she became a Hong Kong citizen because it was more convenient for her work. She added that she would remain focused on the mainland film industry in the future.
