Jing Tian as Li Mei by MZimmer1985 Jing Tian as Li Mei by MZimmer1985
Li Mei [Height: 5' 10", Age: 20's-30's]: Her village was forced into slavery to help construct Shang Tsung's palace around a Soulnado, which had been a longtime legend of her people. In attacking Kano, she gains the attention of Quan Chi, who promises her freedom if she wins a tournament. Around this time she befriends Shujinko, captured by Kano during his forty-year quest for the Kamidogu. Shujinko offers to train her, even though he feels that her chances in the tournament are slim.

Jing Tian [Height: 5' 6"; Age: 27; Notable Works: The Great Wall, Kong: Skull Island, Pacific Rim: Uprising]: DamionS cast this up and coming Chinese actress for a Mortal Kombat role himself, that of Kitana, even though I have my own preferences. Well, in honor of her appearing in this weekend's release of Kong: Skull Island (highly recommended!), I decided to give her a role I've long considered. My take on a Mortal Kombat series would follow the rebooted canon, and Li Mei only had a brief appearance offering her assistance to Earthrealm. And I've no idea if her character will be built on, or even be a playable character, in the next MK game. So in this scenario, she'll retain her backstory from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, yet it'll be intertwined with the whole plot of the 2011 reboot. Aside from that, Jing Tian has shown off her action chops as a tough commander in the unfortunate bomb The Great Wall, co-starring against Matt Damon. Her being a graduate of the Beijing Dance Academy also helps with performing gracefully. And, bonus, much like my Raiden choice (check it out if you haven't, folks!), this actress is the same decent as Li Mei, which is Chinese, obviously. I think she could do justice to Li Mei where the reboot may/may not have done prior.

Cool. There's no Li Mei in my MK movie but Jade is in my version. I haven't cast her yet but I have cast Shinnok.
