Chinese woman who looks like Chairman Mao has quite a tough life

Chairman Mao may be dead, but his dead ringer lives on in today’s decidedly different China in the form of Yan Chen, a 57-year-old woman who quit her job in 2006 at a building material company to become a professional impersonator. What’s that thing Mao used to say again: ‘Let a hundred struggles bloom?’

On the home front, ties are tense — Mao isn’t exactly a popular figure with her family — and Chen is now in a trial separation from her husband as he found the idea of getting close to Mao absolutely repulsive. It sure isn’t easy following in a tyrant’s footsteps.
