The actress also posted a photo of a potted plant and a card she received from Neeson, who's known for his roles in Schindler's List (1993) and the Taken trilogy (2008 to 2014).

"Bingbing, a healthy and a fulfilling and happy new year to you and your lovely family. It is a great pleasure and honour to work with you," read the note.

Ice Road 2 sees Neeson reprising his role as ice road driver Mike McCann, who travels to Nepal to scatter his brother's ashes. When Mike and his mountain guide run into a group of mercenaries while travelling on a tour bus, they are forced to fight to save themselves, the passengers and the country.

Fan will be playing as Dhani, a veteran Mount Everest guide with strong indigenous knowledge and exceptional fighting skills, according to entertainment news site Deadline.
