Loretta Hui-shan Yang or Yang Huishan (Chinese: 楊惠姍) is a Taiwanese film actress.

She is a two-time winner of the Best Leading Actress award at the Golden Horse Awards and winner of the Best Actress prize at the Asia-Pacific Film Festival, as well as an artist of Chinese glass or liuli. "Beauty transformed" is how Japanese critics have described the multiple talents of Loretta Hui-Shan Yang. Loretta Yang was named Best Leading Actress in the 21st and 22nd Golden Horse Film Awards ceremony. She was the first actress who won this award two years in a row. Having committed herself to Chinese glass for more than a decade, she has single-handedly rediscovered the technique of cire-perdue glass casting. She has used this technique to create works with a traditional Chinese artistic flare.[1]
