Biography

Having been trained in ballet at the Beijing Dance Academy, Liu Shishi made her acting debut on the television drama series The Moon and the Wind (2005) in a leading role. She received acclaim for her performances in The Young Warriors (2006) and The Fairies of Liaozhai (2007). She rose to fame for her role as Mu Nianci in The Legend of the Condor Heroes (2008), and guest starred as her character's descendant in The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber (2009).[1] Her role as Long Kui in Chinese Paladin 3 broke her previous typecasting as a "gentle, kind, and understanding maiden"[2] and in A Weaver on the Horizon as the Song dynasty's princess, Zhao Jiayi. The portrayal for her character's gradual development from unruliness to maturity, gave both fans and critics a taste of her versatility and growing competence in challenging roles.[3]

The year 2011 saw Liu hit the jackpot with two successful dramas. She played the thief Yan Sanniang with aplomb in the wuxia action drama The Vigilantes In Masks. She donned the part of Ma'ertai Ruoxi (Zhang Xiao) in the critical and commercial time travel hit Scarlet Heart and has won various awards for her role.[citation needed] Liu also made her singing debut for the soundtrack of Scarlet Heart. Her feature film debut in the inspirational The Next Magic (2011), directed by Taiwanese filmmaker Zhuo Li,[4] saw a transition from her usual genre of historical drama. She has also filmed Scarlet Heart 2, a sequel of Scarlet Heart, reprising her role as the time traveler Zhang Xiao, which is completed on March 2013. The series premiered on April 22, 2014.[5][6]

Personal life

On 20 January 2015, Nicky Wu, her co-star in Scarlet Heart announced on his weibo that he and Liu had registered their marriage in Beijing.[7]
