Ming-Na Wen is an incredibly popular American actress and model with a filmography that any pop culture geek should admire.
She played Chun-Li in the 1994 live-action Street Fighter movie, voiced Mulan in the 1998 Disney movie of the same name (and its sequel), voiced Detective Ellen Yin in The Batman animated series, and played Melinda May in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Most notable, however (as far as this article is concerned, at least) she has also had her moment in the Star Wars spotlight, as she has played Fennec Shand in the Star Wars universe. She's played the character in The Mandalorian, the animated series The Bad Batch, and The Book of Boba Fett.
In The Mandalorian, she is featured in the epic team-up scenes with the eponymous character and Bobba Fett whereby the trio rescued Baby Grogu.
What is very clear, however, is that she didn't simply randomly jump into the role post her Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gig. Mig-Na Wen is clearly a lifelong Star Wars fan as this fantastic set of eleven pictures shows. Some of them show her in Star Wars cosplay, while some of them just show her being a massive fangirl – and, for what it's worth, she's no stranger to the Princess Leia Slave Bikini (see the first image for details)!
1. Ming-Na Wen dressed in the iconic Princess Leia bikini
We promised you this one in the introduction and here we are delivering. It takes a special kind of human to pull off the Prince Leia bikini. Carrie Fisher was one and, given how awesome Ming-Na Wen looks sporting it, she must be too.
2. Ming-Na Wen dressed as Princess Leia from A New Hope
Ming-Na Wen is clearly a big Princess Leia fan, as this image shows her cosplaying Leia's look from A New Hope – and she looks amazing doing it.
3. Ming-Na Wen dressed as Princess Leia from A New Hope (with a friend)
Here's Ming-Na Wen in that very same Princess Leia outfit from A New Hope, only this time she's with a friend – and they both look great!
4. Ming-Na Wen with a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader
Ming-Na Wen isn't wearing any form of Star Wars cosplay in this one, but she is looking very “fangirly” next to a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader.
5. Ming-Na Wen with a wall of lightsabers
Another fangirl moment in this one, as Ming-Na Wen poses happily next to a wall of multicolored lightsabers.
6. Ming-Na Wen with a giant Lego X-Wing
In this image, Ming-Na Wen poses proudly in front of an awesome giant Lego X-Wing.
7. Ming-Na Wen wielding a green lightsaber
We've seen her posing in front of a wall of lightsabers, but here is Ming-Na Wen getting to wield one. She suits it!
8. Ming-Na Wen proudly showing off a Star Wars lunchbox
This one might be the geekiest (and most adorable) of the images in this article, as Ming-Na Wen proudly displays her amazing Star Wars lunchbox.
9. Ming-Na Wen wielding another lightsaber
Another image of Ming-Na Wen wielding a lightsaber. If only Fennec Shand had been given the opportunity to wield one!
10. Ming-Na Wen uses two mini lightsabers as chopsticks
Here is Ming-Na Wen holding two mini lightsabers in the same way you would hold a pair of chopsticks. Very funny – and quite a good idea, actually!
11. Ming-Na Wen with R2-D2 and Ewoks cosplayers
Here is Ming-Na Wen loving life as she poses next two a pair of Ewok cosplayers and an amazing replica model of R2-D2.
It's nice to know that the stars who appear in our favorite franchises can be just as geeky as us, isn't it?
