In 2014, the popular Chinese actress Yao Chen featured alongside her president Xi Jinping in TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. Yao is the most-followed celebrity (with over 78 million fans) on the national social platform Sina Weibo.

She uses her unique position to campaign against environmental challenges and humanitarian concerns and to show support for targets of press censorship, a politically sensitive issue in China. She is China’s first UNHCR goodwill ambassador.
