"I think the opportunities for the Chinese film community are to incorporate western characters into Chinese stories to get western audiences to engage with them. I think the same are opportunities for western, for Hollywood and European [filmmakers]. We're to have more real and three-dimensional great Chinese characters, that's the same truth for both," Peck said.

Peck is best known in China for the movie "Priest."

He has been taking part in lectures on the sidelines of the ongoing Silk Road International Film Festival in Fuzhou, southeast China's Fujian Province.

The session involving Peck was attended by over ten young film directors from Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Laos, and China.
