One of the anticipated things from the latest remake of Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber 新版倚天屠龙记 is the return of Kathy Chow’s who’s role as Zhou Zhiruo in the 1994 Taiwanese drama adaptation continues to be a classic. She will be playing Miejue Shitai while Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms star Bambi Zhu Xudan will be playing her prized protege as Zhou Zhiruo.
At the age of 51, Kathy Chow is still a stunning beauty and while I find it fitting that she will be playing the role of the teacher, she seems too beautiful for the traditionally hateful character of Miejue. Fans seem to have already started predicting that she may end up outshining her co-stars.
Zhu Xudan does have big shoes to fill standing next to the woman who gave one of the most iconic portrayals of Zhou Zhiruo. We only have pictures to go by but she seems to be living up to the challenge.
