Jiang Qinqin began learning Beijing Opera at the age of 10. She is a good actress and skilled in acrobatic fighting. In 1994, she enrolled in the Beijing Film Academy with the highest score that year. Her appearance and talent have won the approval of many producers and directors.

In the second year of Jiang's study at the Beijing Film Academy, director Yang Jie was looking for a female lead for her TV series "Xi Shi". Jiang Qinqin, a graceful and charming young girl, suddenly grabbed Yang Jie's attention. Her performance in the series made others aware of her potential.

If Yang Jie was the guide who found Jiang work as a real actress, then the renown Taiwanese writer Qiong Yao is the "Bole" (a talent scout) who helped Jiang become a star. Many actors and actresses became famous after starring in Qiong Yao's TV series, such as Brigittelin (Lin Qingxia), Vicky Zhao (Zhao Wei) and Ruby Lin (Lin Xinru). However, few people know that the first mainland actress in Qiong Yao's screenplay was Jiang Qinqin.

In 1996, Qiong Yao's screenplay Tears in Heaven was getting ready to shoot. But the actress for the female lead Xiao Yufeng had not been decided yet. By chance, Qiong Yao saw Jiang's photograph on the cover of a magazine. Jiang's peaceful and gentle manner, classic and modern spirit brightened her eyes. "That's the one I am looking for." Thus, Jiang Qinqin landed the role of Xiao Yufeng, and she received the beautiful name Qiong Yao "Shui Ling" means very pretty and smart.

Later on, she appeared in many TV series. From Mu Nianci in The Legend of The Condor Heroes, to Wen Xiu in The Last Concubine, to Gu Manlu in Half Life Fate, her acting has impressed audiences nationwide.
