Our Tori, Maggie Q will be heading back to television. Deadline is reporting that Maggie Q will be starring in a mini series about a femal pirate. Maggie will be playing the role of Ching Shih.
Titled Red Flag, the series is set in the early 1800s and centers on Ching Shih (Maggie Q), a beautiful young Chinese prostitute who goes on to become one of history’s most powerful pirates and head of the most successful crime syndicate in China. With over 100,000 sailors and 1500-plus vessels, Ching controlled the South China Sea while taking on the Imperial Chinese navy, the Portuguese navy, and the all-powerful British navy to eventually conquer them all. “It’s exciting to have the opportunity to share Ching Shih’s real-life story with audiences that are both familiar and unfamiliar with her prominent history,” Maggie Q said.
Maggie Q will be playing Tori in Summit Entertainment’s Divergent due out March 21st.
