Liu Yifei aka Crystal Liu (刘亦菲) recently celebrated her 31st birthday over the weekend.
Despite a busy filming schedule (Disney’s live-action remake of “Mulan” just started shooting in New Zealand), the cast and crew took some off to surprise the lead actress. The Chinese beauty was presented with a birthday cake, flowers, and a ton of presents.
The actress also took to her social media accounts to share snapshots of herself unwrapping the gifts as well as photos taken during the dinner celebration. In a bare-faced selfie, her cheeks appear to be flushed with alcohol.
The joyous occasion was attended by her co-stars, which include Macau-born New Zealand actor Yoson An starring as the male lead Chen Honghui, Donnie Yen (甄子丹), Jimmy Wong (who plays Ling), Jun Yu, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Chum Ehelepola, Rosalind Chao, Ron Yuan, Doua Moua, and more.
Some of them even took to Instagram to post heartfelt messages to the birthday chick. Check ’em out:

Happiest Birthday to @yifei_cc. Even though we’ve just begun production, I can already tell just how much of an honor it is to get to work with you. You are kind, giving, and focused; an absolute professional and hard worker. Thank you for setting the bar for all of us and showing us how to handle such a big project with grace and style. To my fellow 兔子🐰, 祝你生日快乐！
“Mulan” is due to open in cinemas March 2020.
