Fan rose to fame in East Asia in 1998–1999 with the TV costume drama series My Fair Princess. In 2003, she starred in Cell Phone, which became China's highest-grossing film of the year, and received critical acclaim at the Hundred Flowers Awards. She has starred in many Chinese films, most notably Lost in Beijing (2007), Buddha Mountain (2011), Double Xposure (2012) and I Am Not Madame Bovary (2016), where she received awards from the Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards, the Tokyo International Film Festival, the San Sebastián International Film Festival and Golden Rooster Awards. She has participated in many foreign-language films, such as the French film Stretch (2011), the Korean film My Way (2011), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), in which she portrayed Blink, and the Hong Kong-Chinese-American film Skiptrace (2015), for which she won the Golden Screen Award for Best Actress.
Fan was honored at the 2017 Time 100 Gala in Manhattan, recognized on Time Magazine's list of the 100 most influential people of 2017. In 2017, Fan served on the 70th Cannes Film Festival jury and was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 2018, Fan was secretly detained by Chinese authorities, disappearing from public view on 1 July 2018 for nearly three months. She subsequently appeared on social media, offering a public apology over tax evasion, for which she was fined more than CN¥883 million (US$127 million).
Fan was born in Qingdao and was raised in Yantai. She graduated from Shanghai Xie Jin Film and Television Art College and Shanghai Theatre Academy.
1996–2006: Early roles and breakthrough
Fan debuted in the television series Powerful Woman and played minor roles for two years, before gaining attention in 1999 for her supporting role as Jin Suo in the first two seasons of the Chinese television series My Fair Princess, which were adapted from Taiwanese writer Chiung Yao's story. She had been recommended by Cantonese actress Leanne Liu to join the cast. The comedic period drama enjoyed widespread success in Asia, propelling Fan to become a household name in the region. After that, Fan signed an eight-year contract with Chiung Yao's company, which produced My Fair Princess. However, as the company had yet to establish any branches in mainland China, many mainland Chinese television advertising firms had to make calls to Taiwan for negotiations, resulting in a waste of time and effort. When Fan and her mother wanted to end the contract, Chiung Yao's company asked for CN¥1 million in compensation, but eventually the court ordered Fan to pay CN¥200,000 because the contract was illegal due to her age.
Fan won a Best Actress Award at the 27th Hundred Flowers Awards, and an Outstanding New Actress nomination at the 10th Huabiao Awards. She also appeared in The Lion Roars (2002), The Twins Effect II (2004), A Chinese Tall Story (2005), and A Battle of Wits (2006). She received a Golden Bauhinia Awards nomination for her role in the Chinese-South-Korean-Japanese epic film A Battle of Wits.

Tax evasion incident
On 28 May 2018, TV anchor Cui Yongyuan used social media to leak a redacted contract disclosing Fan being paid CN¥10 million for her four days of work on the upcoming Feng Xiaogang film Cell Phone 2. The following day, Cui published a second redacted contract showing an amount of CN¥50 million for the same job, suggesting that the smaller contract was intended for reporting to tax authorities to avoid being taxed for her full compensation of CN¥60 million.
This disclosure prompted Jiangsu Provincial and Wuxi City tax authorities to investigate a suspected case of tax evasion. Fan's studio issued a statement denying that she had ever signed separate contracts for a single job. They claimed that they would cooperate fully with relevant authorities in the investigation and would address public concerns.
Fan was later presumed missing due to her last public appearance occurring on 1 July 2018 and her lack of activity on social media after 23 July. Rumours has it that Fan was arrested, but there is no official confirmation or statement except that in August Fan's manager Jersey Chong has confirmed via social media that Fan was never arrested. Fan broke the silence on 3 October 2018 by apologizing to the public for tax evasion after the Chinese authorities ordered her and her companies to pay about CN¥883 million (US$127.4 million) in taxes and penalties to avoid criminal prosecution.
