Maggie Q Birthday: From Live Free or Die Hard to Mission Impossible 3 – Here’s Looking At the Actress’ Best Films.
Operation: Endgame sees Maggie Q share the screen along with Zach Galifianakis, Bob Odenkirk, Adam Scott, and more. In the film, Maggie plays the high priestess who is caught among all the insane action happening in the background.
The first film of a trilogy, Divergent is based on the novel of the same name. This Sci-fi film takes place in a post-apocalyptic Chicago where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues.

Rush Hour 2
While not having a major role in the film, and just amounting to a cameo, Q still is able to leave a mark in the movie. The film sees the reteaming of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, and even though Q’s role is just in passing by, her scene is still memorable
Mission: Impossible III
One of Q’s biggest roles, we see her share the screen alongside great actors like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Tom Cruise. The film helped her solidify as a decent action movie star and is still one of the best films on her resume. She plays the role of Zhen, a Chinese national who may have vital information for our main lead Ethan Hunt.
Live Free or Die Hard
Probably Q’s best film, where she shares the screen alongside Bruce Willis. In an antagonistic turn, Q plays the role of Mai Linch who is part of an international group of web hackers. This role again showed Q’s great acting chops as an action star and she played the role of a femme-fatale type perfectly.
