Photos Of Mulan Stunt Double Gain Virality For Looks That Can Rival Any Actress
The 2020 version of Mulan took over cinemas when they reopened following months of closure.
But apart from the movie itself, someone who wasn’t even billed in the main cast suddenly received attention on the Internet recently.
Liu Yaxi was the stunt double for some of lead actress Liu Yifei’s scenes in the movie, and her pictures left netizens gasping for air at her beauty.
We bring you some highlights of why the Internet is clamouring for her to star in a movie herself.
Mulan stunt double arguably outshines lead
After witnessing Ms Liu’s pictures as Mulan, many were in disbelief as to why she wasn’t picked to be the female lead.

Mulan stunt double performed while looking 10/10
In the movie, Mulan takes on many enemies with sheer ease, beating aside any notions that women are the fairer sex.

And here’s Ms Liu caught in a candid moment that-
Forgive us, for we lost our word for a moment there due to that smile.
No less stunning in real life
Her moves will have you thinking otherwise, but Ms Liu is just an ordinary woman — at least, as ordinary as someone with her out-of-this-world looks can claim to be.
That’s right, just another normal person.
Has no desire to become an actress — for now
Although many clamour for Ms Liu to venture into acting or even Hollywood, she’s keeping her feet firmly on the ground for now.
We’re sure she’d capture many more hearts if she should choose such a path, but we respect her decision, of course.
We stan a humble queen.
