Ming-Na Wen at Comic-Con 2013

Chinese-American actress Ming-Na Wen (first featured at the old site here) graced San Diego’s Comic-Con 2013 with her presence this past July to help promote Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the current-running TV series in which she stars as pilot and weapons expert Melinda May.

The Annie Award-winner, who turned 50 on November 20th, shows she’s hasn’t missed a beat since the start of her career, which (believe it or not) began with a role on the children’s TV series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Learn everything else on her between then and now at her IMDb listingofficial website, and she’s also on Twitter.

    I can’t believe she is 50, I’ve watched a couple of epidodes of Shield and she still looks great.

    Holy Cow! She’s 50!?!?! WOW! She looks amazing! Beautiful and classy.
    That’s why I’d marry a Chinese woman – she’d still look HOT in her middle ages!

    Ming Na is an incredibly attractive for a woman of her age—hell for a woman of ANY age, With that said, she stands out on SHIELD as a decent actress in a show with some seriously dreadful acting. Don’t get me wrong, I kind of like the show–it’s fun. But two or three of the main characters are played by some questionable actors/actresses. (One of them was profiled here just recently.)

    I’ve always been a fan, and I’ve become an even bigger fan over the years.

    She is starting to show her age, but still a beautiful woman, I loved her to death when she was on ER and would watch the show just to see her.

    I haven’t watched the show yet, but Ming-Na is a great reason to start!

    Super hot for 50 or any age! Between her and Chloe Wang, SHIELD is fun to watch.

    Man!…she really is hot. I’d have never guessed she was 50. Hope I look this good in ten years.

    Indeed, I was a bit shocked too to read she was 50! Excellent looking lady no doubt, two thumbs up.

    Met her when she was doing press for “Mulan”…stunner then, stunner now.

    I am floored that she is 50. She still looks good enough to give a girl of any age a run for her money.

    And the fact that she was at Comic-Con almost makes me wish I had attended.

    Almost ;-)

    Haha, I never put on costumes. I have only even gone to one Halloween party as an adult.

    Ming-Na Wen is a good test on perceived age because I didn’t know how old she was. I see her and my brain is still saying 30 year old! Another example of the youth and beauty of asian women. (^-^) Not that much of a comic book devotee though, but did like Peanuts (Snoopy), lol.

    Thanks for this update CEC. She is the archetype of the Asian milf.
