Archie Kao in "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" (2011)

Archie Kao (Kai, Lost Galaxy) played a supporting role in the drama "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan." The film traces the lives of two girls, Lily & Snow Flower in 19th century China, who struggle to maintain their friendship as they grow older in their rigid society, where the only way they can truly communicate is through messages etched on a white silk fan. The film features a parallel story, set in present day Shanghai, where their descendants, Nina & Sophia, find their friendship coming to an end due to conflicts over love and their careers, until Sophia is in a terrible accident leaving her in a coma. Nina stays by her side, giving up a career in New York, with her boss & boyfriend Sebastian, played by Archie Kao. The former Blue Ranger appears in several scenes of the film, which features several flashbacks, showing how Nina & Sebastian met, became a couple and worked together to get ahead in their business. Ultimately, Sebastian goes to New York without Nina.

"Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" is available on DVD
