I’ve updated the gallery with two new scans from Women’s Wear Daily and Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find the rest of Maggie’s WWD feature just yet.

When Maggie Q first arrived in Hong Kong in 1997, she was 18 years old – broke, beautiful and utterly alone. Known then as Maggie Quigley, a Hawaiian girl of American and Vietnamese heritage, she got off the plane at the old Kai Tak airport with just one US$20 bill in her pocket, two huge suitcases and the phone number of a modeling agent she had never spoken with – her sole contact in the city. Seven-and-a-half tumultuous years later, she departed Hong Kong one of the most recognizable faces in China, jetting to Los Angeles to accept a role opposite Tom Cruise in the biggest action movie of the year: Mission Impossible 3. She has seldom looked back – mostly because, for the past few years, she hasn’t had a moment to spare.

Immediately following Mission Impossible, Q was cast as an exotic foil to Bruce Willis in Die Hard 4.0; after which, she was soon seen leading an imperial army across the Gobi Desert in the Chinese period action drama Three Kingdoms, co-starring Andy Lau. In essence, Q’s story traces the timeworn arc of the American dream, except that Hong Kong, China, is the place that made it all possible. From misfit American teenager, to Asian supermodel, to struggling Hong Kong action actress, to international screen star, Q’s ascension has been fast, rocky and improbable at every turn. “Maggie is the only young talent of her generation to come out of the Hong Kong system and make the transition to Hollywood success,” says local film producer and Hong Kong cinema expert Bey Logan, who was one of Q’s confidants and frequent collaborators during her later Hong Kong days.

When viewers first met Nikita, she seemed focused on one thing: revenge. Division did kill her fiance, after all.

But Maggie Q’s character has gone back to right some wrongs on recent episodes (e.g. “Rough Trade”), leading viewers to wonder if she has regrets or has gone soft or… what.

“I’d say it’s more redemption than anything,” the actress told Zap2It. “I think it’s more about Nikita having to feel human again and wanting to go back and fix the things that she didn’t have control over at the time, which is a very hard thing to do. I don’t know if she’s going to be able to do that entirely, but she’s certainly trying.”

I’ve uploaded a beautiful new photoshoot of Maggie taken for WWD by Patrick Hoelck. This is one of my favorite shoots of Maggie and in addition I have added a snippet of her interview with the magazine.

The ‘Nikita’ actress – who is a vegan and animal rights activist and refuses to wear leather or fur – remembers coveting clothes by the US fashion designer when she was a teenager but admitted she wasn’t grown up enough to wear them.

She said: “I remember appreciating Donna Karan when I was a teenager, but I couldn’t wear it because I wasn’t a woman yet.

“You have to be a woman to wear her clothes – or at least half a woman and put it on to be a full woman.”

Maggie is also a fan of designers Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garçons and Rick Owens as well as Stella McCartney and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
