Nina Li was born as Li Chi ( Li Zhi) on the 31st of December, 1961, in Shanghai. Her father was a respected stage actor (some sort of Lee Strasberg of China) and had taught in the actor studio in Shanghai and Canton for many years. Her parents had been separated since her childhood and this had a very negative effect on the rest of her life. When she was 19 (1981), her father went to Hong Kong and she later followed in his footsteps. She first worked in a furniture store for about a year and then went to the United States to further her studies. She studied in San Francisco for about three years, studying economics and business. In order to pay her tuition fees, she was the tutor of some small children and nursed a paralysed elderly lady.

She finally came back to Hong Kong in 1986 and entered the Miss Asia Pageant. It was the longest night in her life. After 3 long hours she was elected Miss Asia by a board of adjudicators headed by the Hon. H.M.G. Forsgate CBE., JP., the then chairman of the Urban Council and Mr. Michael Hui Koon Man. At first the audience did not accept her at all and almost everyone sneered at her. Whenever she started to speak Cantonese with her Shanghai accent, they hissed at her. 'Learned gentlemen' despised her and they regarded her beauty as ' gaudy ' and 'tasteless' while 'ladies' screamed at her whenever they saw her (probably due to jealousy). She retired in 1992 and became a real estate investor in Mainland China. Unfortunately, her business collapsed in 1996. In 1999 she married Jet Li and they currently live in San Francisco. The two had met years previously in San Francisco during the filming of Dragon Fight. (JC)
