Born in China, Simu Liu arrived with his family in Mississauga, Ontario at the age of five. Pushed to excel academically from a young age, he turned to acting after a position at a top accounting firm disappeared when cutbacks suddenly left him without a job. He picked up guest roles on shows such as Make it Pop, Nikita, Warehouse 13 and Beauty and the Beast. He will next be seen in a recurring role playing Faaron on the 2017 NBC series Taken, based on the film franchise starring Liam Neeson. He plays the role of Jung on the hit CBC series Kim’s Convenience.
In mid-July 2019 it was announced at San Diego’s Comic-Con that Liu will star in the title role in the highly-anticipated Marvel superhero film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Liu had done a screen test just a week before and found out he had landed the role two days before Comic-Con began.
