Pictures of a little-known stunt double on the set of Mulan recently found its way onto social media.
And let's just say, the Internet is smitten.
While not everyone was crazy about Disney's live-action remake, it seems that netizens can totally agree that the stunt double for Chinese actress Liu Yifei, who plays the titular character, is absolutely gorgeous.
Sharing the same last name, it is no secret that stuntwoman Liu Yaxi has been working behind the scenes
She also recently shared a screenshot of the movie's end credits that proudly shows her name listed as 'Mulan's Stunt Double'.
Liu also seems very friendly with main actress Liu Yifei, as seen in several pictures previously posted while off set
More than just a pretty face though, the videos of her training practices and stunts she performs have been amazing
Although cinematographer Mandy Walker told Insider that Liu Yifei did her own stunts for 90% of the action scenes in Mulan, there were a few beyond her skills.
And, that's where Liu Yaxi, a professional martial artist, steps in.
According to TODAY, stuntwoman Liu has even defended the actress when she came under social media fire for having a stunt double.
"Martial arts is dangerous, and it's inevitable that a stunt double will be used because it'll be too risky if the actors were to do everything themselves," she explained.
Aptly said, here is Liu in action:
And if that isn't all, it seems that Liu also did the stunts for the witch character played by Gong Li
