Maggie Q - The Star Of Nikita, Die Hard 4 and Divergent Movies

A few years ago, the name Maggie Q was all but unknown to people. And it’s no surprise. Having gone from a down and out fashion model developing a career in Hong Kong - to minor actress to sudden Big Movie star, to then suddenly getting her own TV series NIKITA, it begs some obvious questions – like how did she do it, how did she act in so many Asian movies even though she hails from Hawaii herself - and what does Q stand for? How did Maggie Q get to acting alongside Tom Cruise and more recently opposite Bruce Willis in the latest Die Hard Blockbuster? Since everyone is talking about this new starlet, it’s time we had a Hub on Maggie Q. Read on!

Source

Maggie Q was born into the world as Margaret Denise Quigley, in Honolulu - born to an American Father of Irish descent (hence the Irish name Quigley) once stationed in Vietnam and a Mom from Vietnam. Her mother has 2 children from a previous Vietnamese family. Maggie being the youngest of 5 siblings, graduated from Mililani High School, then left to travel to Asia to places like Taiwan and Japan, and commenced a career as a young model. Her part-Vietnamese, part-Caucasian looks managed to work to her advantage in Asia, and she passed off an Asian model. Her sojourn in Asia, turned from a few months to a few years, and she wound up on the cover of many magazines and papers in Hong Kong. One newspaper there the Apple Daily was to shorten her name to Maggie Q, as Chinese people had difficulty pronouncing her Irish name, which sometimes sounded like "Queely" or "Quickly". (The name doesn't exactly roll off the tongue smoothly if you are Chinese, and the name is Irish!) She Kept Maggie Q, and Hong Kong became a second home to her where she often had to model for small fees, before a chance encounter with a Hong Kong Acting Legend changed her life and fortunes.

Jackie Chan, the famed Martial Arts actor saw Maggie Q and told her that she should be in films, seeing as she had both the looks and the figure for the screen. Though she had no acting experience, Maggie correctly surmised that films paid far more than modeling, and her meager salary as a model meant she jumped at the chance. But there was a big problem. This was Hong Kong, and Maggie was from Honolulu, in the USA. She could not speak any Asian languages, and in action movies – where actors had in those cash strapped days – to do some of their own stunts and fight sequences, she was a fish out of water with no experience, no ability to speak Chinese and she could not even do push-ups or touch her toes. Jackie Chan took a shine to the young Maggie and set her on the right course – making sure she got the training as an actor and stunt star in films. She had a small role in Rush Hour 2, as a girl in a car. Thanks to Jackie Chan, her career took off, and her first few films were Chinese language action films Gen-Y-Cops and Naked Weapon, not to be confused with the controversial Naked Killer.

Part American-Irish, part Vietnamese, Maggie's looks say it all...
Part American-Irish, part Vietnamese, Maggie's looks say it all...

Titular roles in Das Hous Der Harmonie, a German – Singaporean collaboration further improved her prospects in acting. She appeared as a female agent in another Jackie Chan film Around the World in 80 Days in 2004. Having to learn Cantonese and Mandarin to get Hong Kong movie roles, it was a formative and learning period in her career. It was in 2006, when future Star Trek Movie Director J.J. Abrams (Creator of the TV series Lost and ALIAS) was looking for an “Asian Babe” to star alongside Tom Cruise in the Third Installment of Mission Impossible that Maggie Q was chosen. She fit the bill because she ticked all the boxes, as being Asian, youthful, sexy, and this time American. This time it was her being American which came to the fore, and worked in her favor. The character she was playing was Zhen, the only female member of the IMF Team in the film, and she had some memorable scenes where it was felt she helped carry the film. Wearing a sexy dress, dressed like a super model and driving a showy racing car naturally helped to turn heads both in the film and off screen. This was her moment, and when Hollywood took notice, people wondered where on earth did this Babe come from?

In 2007, Les Wiseman wanted an Asian Beauty to act opposite Bruce Willis in the fourth film of a Blockbuster series in Live Free of Die hard (Also known as Die Hard 4.0) Hot on the success of Mission Impossible, she was cast as Mai Linh, the girlfriend and Can-do badass high kicking hacker female lover of the film’s bad guy, played by Timothy Olyphant. Her memorable fight scenes beating up Bruce Willis and co-star Justin Long, and nail-biting moments in the memorable Elevator shaft CAR scene (!!?) - were to be the capstone on her film acting career, securing Maggie Q as an A-List Female actor. Her dream of hitting big time had just become reality. The film, not surprisingly was a smash hit box office success around the world. She followed this with the film Balls of Fury, a quirky film about the sport and game of table tennis. It couldn't be a more sharper contrast, compared to Die hard 4.0.

Yippeee - Kayyy - Aaaayyy!!

Maggie Q

She got it all.
She got it all.

Maggie also appeared in Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon, an ancient costume drama set in China, and she starred as Inspector Chase Linh, a live action character in the Video Game Need for Speed: Undercover. It was a video game with a near movie style budget. Maggie was chosen to be the title character and role for the 2010 TV series NIKITA, based on The Luc Besson French hit film “The Assassin” and American remake “Nikita” which featured Gabriel Byrne. The NIKITA TV show is a revamp of the original Film story, with extra new characters added. Nikita is about a woman who is sentenced to prison for life for being a Killer, only to be releases on condition that she train to be an Assassin for the Government to do Black Bag operations involving eliminating all sorts of Bad Guys. The female character is pursued and saved by the Nikita character who has escaped the system, and attained her own freedom, and is now trying to bring down the entire program that tried to ruin her life, and she uses her skills as trained Killer to take on the shady Govt organisation and bring it down. With another hit film “Priest”, co-starring alongside Paul Bethany, it was obvious life was busy for this Asian babe.

From humble origins in the beautiful island paradise of Honolulu to Hong Kong to Hollywood, thanks in part to actor Jackie Chan, Maggie Q has much to be grateful for. Good looks, sexy star quality, and knowing the right people – she has become, like Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner (of ALIAS fame) - another great leading lady.

Recently on the set of a new series "Stalker" Maggie found the love of her life in Dylan Mc Dermot, and they are now engaged. She has also been a proud advocate of PETA, an organisation that fights for animal rights. Maggie is known for walking around a lot in her bare feet. With one foot in Movies and the other in TV, she can run with the foxes and run with the hounds. And having the ability to play American or Asian characters in either – gives her an edge. Maggie Q is a very bankable star will continue to shine for the foreseeable future.

Hey Art! I am very glad you are still here. I saw another message on another hub and I feared the worse. I was going to email you to not go ahead with whatever it was. I would truly miss you like the dickens. :) Glad to have you always here, moi friend. You are a good friend always to me, and Cathy. If I did anything silly in the last day or two, please tell me. I was honestly doing my best for you. *Hugs ya*

I love Maggie Q, but I just cant buy her as a killing machine. But you have to love that Nikita poster!


Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hello drbj: I agree, Jackie picked a real winner. Maggie Q has the looks and figure for anything in films or TV. She is a bit on the "slight" side, and could use a bit more meat on her bones perhaps - but she is class too. Cheers!

Hy Sabreblade: as a killing machine, I know what you mean. I got that impression even in the Die Hard film some years back. More beautiful than deadly, and a wee bit too delicate looking to be a bone-crushing, all in WWF Female Bruiser-type. But she passes mustard as the female Nikita when it comes to acting. And yes, that poster is Dynamite. Love the guns as legs on the chair she is reclining on. Take care, Sabre! :)

Hello Blaise! Maggie Q does look very stunning! Especially draped across that chair above. She is a babe, and then some. LOL! Cathy is part Indian and Thai and British, so yes, Asian mix is her thing, amongst many I am sure. Cathy likes all types, Blaise. Even in a flight attendant uniform, it seems!! *Wink* Where is my baby? She popped over to be with her family (after our morning run in the park), then will be home for dinner! She was "sniffing" around the Hubs last night. LOL!!! Hope you have a great day, Blaise. XOX

Or if you looked at your watch at ten past ten, it wud be 10/10/10/10 lol. Anyways I gotta get writing again especially under my TG name, I have been lazy this last week but have passed the £60 mark already.

Its all about those backlinks and of course aging. But also use the ad filter, I did a Biker Tattoos blog and my earnings nosedived as all my ads were bike related.

Always make sure you get those keywords just right, and in adsense use yer ad filter, it does make a big difference moi friend. Enjoy yer Sunday girls, muchness hugs to you both xoxo

...well it's a very very good day to be a man - that's for sure - Maggie Q can flip me over her back anyday and pin me down - and so can you my dear cheeky girl - because I flipped over you a long long time ago - when I first had the honor of finding these hallowed hub pages of yours.

By the way the original foreign language film (French) of La Femme Nikita is a real gem - and then again so are your fine array of hubs my one and only Cheeky girl!


Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hey Tony! I am super happy about the date and times today! It's been a great day for us ladies. :) Aw, you can have a wee break from the hub writing once in a blue moon, I guess. Congrats on hitting the £60 already. I found my payments shot up after setting up moi website. Love that Google adsense!

I totally agree about the backlinks. They are what gets me my traffic from outside of Hub Pages, apart from searches of course. Yes, I have tinkered around with the Ad filter a bit. Google are changing things round in it a bit, but it's such a great tool. I always see other keyword tools on the web, but haven't tried any yet. Thanks for the keyword tips here Art! It's easy for me to find them but hard for Cathy cos she writes mainly poetry, and the keywords are thin on the ground re subject matter sometimes. Cheers, moi friend! Have a nice week ahead. XOXO

Hy Epigramman, hoo boy - flipping somebody - now that's a tall order. Wait till I fetch my wok! Heh! Maggie can be quite the tease, can't she. She is a real looker. LOL! Well, you are showering me with nice compliments here, Sir. And I like very much!! :) Nikita was a great film, a Quality feature as usual from Monsieur Luc Besson. Wonder would he ever direct a Die Hard movie? It's not like he couldn't do action, he clearly can, and directed a Bruce Willis flick called "The Fifth Element". Plenty of flipping in that film too! Heh! Thanks for loving my fine array of hubs! Cheers, Colin. Enjoy your day, moi friend! X

Hi Cheeky Girl. How ya doin ? Well I have not seen the TV show but I have seen the commercial for it. And Maggie definitely does not hurt your eyes while gazing at her. I guess I will have to DVR the show now. And I noticed you said she's single. I wonder how she feels about older more immature men ?


Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hello Tony! I am doing well! The TV show looks good, and I liked it. Maggie Q is great on the eyes, we think! Heh! Yes, I am DVRing the show also. And yes, you would stand a great chance there I am sure, tony. She is a real beauty. Have a great day! :)

Great Hub. Just watched the 1st episode of Nikita with my Husband and we are both instantly hooked and looking forward to episode 2 on Thursday (here in UK). One of those series like "Dollhouse", one episode is all it takes to make you determined not to miss a single episode until it finishes.

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hy prasetio: Maggie Q is a babe, if you ask me! LOL! She is part-Vietnamese, and born in Honolulu, which explains her Asian features. Cheers for this!! :)

Hy misyhorizon2003: Yes, I saw the 1st episode, it was just great. She is great in this show, I heard it is well liked, and she is fantastic. I am a fan of the 2 movies on which it is based. Thanks for the comments!

I loved the movie 'The Assassin' and did wonder if the series Nikita was based on it in any way as the plot was so similar. Nice to know my suspicions were correct.


Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hello misty, yes the Assassin is one and the same. I did like that film too. Gabriel Byrne was good in that film. Same plot, same idea. It just goes to show you how good ideas can translate onto TV. Cheers!

I wondered, when I first started seeing the ads for the new Nikita series, who she was. The world knows now. She is not a woman that blends into the woodwork. Her beauty looks intelligient, and she is. She took her opportunities and ran with them. You illustrated perfectly a beautiful woman with brains does exist. Great writing. Thoroughly interesting and a compliment to your subject. Thank you, Cheeky Girl.

Hy Joe: Luc Besson is a genius. The last episode I saw over here (UK) was very good. The series is great as it has flashbacks to how Nikita rescued the other female killer and switches from the past back to the present. It's a great show! Cheers! :D

Maggie Q rocks! I am a huge fan of the original series NIKITA and have always admired the character. In the beginning I had my doubts about Miss Q. I could not imagine her pulling off the fierceness Peta Wilson did (being so slight/skinny). I was pleasantly surprised and sorry I ever doubted her!


Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 5 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hy njsherry, the original Nikita was excellent, the character was also non-Asian, but Maggie pulls it off. She has that everywoman quality, and her looks stand in her favor. She is slender but she is fit ad well up for her demanding role and action moments. Thanks for being a Maggie fan! Cheers!
