Toshia Mori was a Japanese actress from the 1920s to the 1930s. Initially, she was billed as Toshia Mori, but she later changed her name to 'Shia Jung', surely because more work could be found for Chinese actors than Japanese ones! She was the only Asian actress chosen to be one of the WAMPAS Baby Stars (in 1932). She is best remembered as the Asian bad girl in 1933's "The Bitter Tea of General Yen" (publicity for the movie said that director Frank Capra had discovered her working in an Asian curio shop). Some of her other movies include: The Man Without a Face, Peeking in Peking, Roar of the Dragon, and Charlie Chan on Broadway. Mori passed away in 1995 at the age of 83.
