In 1994, after an international casting call, Francoise was chosen to star along side Jackie Chan in Rumble in The Bronx. The critical and financial success of Rumble in Asia (and its subsequent number one box office bow in the United States) made Francoise an instant success and garnered her two Hong Kong Film Award nominations.
She went on to gain a foot hold as a bankable female lead in numerous Hong Kong films before being asked to star with Kung-fu cinema great Jet Li in Tsui Hark's Black Mask. It was in this film that Francoise demonstrated her outstanding athletic ability as a dark and commanding femme fetale.
Shortly after finishing Black Mask Francoise returned to her homeland to resume her studies and work on Ernest Dickerson's Futuresport with Wesley Snipes and Vanessa Williams.
She is currently working on an urban drama called Flesh and Blood, is in pre-production as both the lead and producer on an independent feature and can be seen as a guest star on an upcoming episode of Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict.
