During her time spent with the People’s Art Theater she performed as a young man in the Yuequin and Little Tiger stage play, which caught the attention of movie director Teng Wenji, which would later land her a role on the film On the Beach in 1985. Ling later moved to New York in 1991 to study in the New York University’s film department.
