One of China’s most successful actresses has been banned from trading in the country’s stock markets for “irregularities” connected with a takeover bid. Actress Zhao Wei and her husband, Huang Youlong, run a company called Tibet Longwei Culture & Media, which regulators said “seriously misled the market with fake information.”
