Early Life & Background
Maria Zhang also known as Zhang Zhiyi was born in Poland on August 8, 1999. Her mom is from Poland, and her dad is from China. Furthermore, Zhang’s mom is an oil restoration artist while her dad is a sculptor.
A year after Zhang’s birth her parents relocated to Beijing where she spent her early years. However, as a child, she loved spending summers in Poland with her grandparents, and she learned to speak Chinese, Polish, and English.
When she was 12, during a visit to Poland, Zhang and her sister found an ad for auditions for a theater group. This unexpected discovery sparked her love for acting and started her amazing journey.
As she pursued her dreams, Zhang moved to Southern California for college at the University of Southern California (USC). Her parents, who were talented artists themselves, played a big role in shaping her creative and diverse upbringing.
Maria Zhang started acting in 2018 in a short film called “Continuum.” She played a character named Dayna Hu, and she was known as Marysia Zhang back then. This was her first step into acting.
In 2020, she did another short film called “Dear Mom” where she acted as Vivian.
After that, she joined a TV series called “WorkInProgress: A Comedy Web Series” and played the role of Ani Dinh. This series had five episodes, and it let her show off her acting skills over a longer story.
In 2022, she had a big success in her acting journey with the short film “All I Ever Wanted.” She acted as Jennifer, and this role made more people notice her and added to her list of work.
Looking ahead, Zhang has two exciting projects coming up. She will be in a short film called “Made in USA” as Ming Ming.
But the most exciting thing is that in 2024, she will be in the live-action TV series “Avatar: The Last Airbender” appearing as Suki in ten episodes. Other casts in this series include Gordon Cormier, Kiawentiio Tarbell, Ian Ousley, and Elizabeth Yu.
If you’re wondering who Maria Zhang’s boyfriend or partner is, I’m sorry to say that information is yet to be shared with the public. It looks like the young actress is focused on making her acting career bigger.
As of 2023, Zhang is yet to have her net worth calculated. However, we believe with her growing fame and popularity it will be estimated in the future.
