Chen Xiao Xu was a famous Chinese actress, a successful businesswoman, and billionaire in advertising. Though she only played in two TV series in her short life, she is far more famous than many actors who have frequent and high exposure. In 1987, Chen became a household name in China and abroad because of her heart-wrenching portrayal of the leading role in the CCTV's drama series "A Dream of Red Mansions", based on one of the four great classical novels of Chinese literature.
In the same year, Chen played in another TV series called "Family, Spring and Autumn", but found that she couldn't make any breakthrough in acting. Her acting career peak began with but also ended with "A Dream of Red Mansions". Chen did not stay in the entertainment industry for long and decided to begin a career in advertising. At the time, she was the General Manager for Shi Bang Advertisement Co. Ltd. and Shi Bang Culture Development Co. Ltd.
In 2007, less than two months before her death, Chen became a Buddhist nun, ordained by Venerable Master Chin Kung, and was given the Dharma name Miaozhen. She died of breast cancer in Shenzhen on May 13, 2007.
Her series "A Dream of Red Mansions" has been re-aired more than 800 times.
