On April 19, 1989, Simu was born to engineers Zheng and Zhenning Liu. He is a native of Harbin, China, and speaks Mandarin with ease. His grandparents raised him initially.
His parents made the decision to pursue aerospace engineering degrees in Canada when he was five years old. So they moved to Mississauga, Ontario, along with their son. They introduced him to complex maths at a young age as well.
Young Liu attended the University of Toronto Schools for his secondary schooling. He next went to the Ivey Business School at the University of Western Ontario. Simu obtained a business administration degree in 2011.
One of the best accounting firms in the world, Deloitte, employed him as an accountant after he graduated from college. He was let go after nine months because he detested his job. Being fired was a bad experience, but it encouraged him to pursue acting. After that, he started his acting career by appearing as a stuntman and extra in a number of movies and music videos.
Simu Liu began producing his own movies in 2013. Open Gym, his debut cinematic endeavor, was a short film that premiered at the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival.
The year after that, he posed for FatCamera’s stock photographs, which when he rose to fame turned into a meme. 2015 saw the Chinese-born actor land his first recurring part in the drama “Blood and Water” on Omni Television.
Simu was chosen to play one of the lead roles in Kim’s Convenience the same year he began acting in “Blood and Water.” This turned out to be his largest television endeavor to date, which led to him landing roles on Taken, Bad Blood, and Orphan Black.
He appeared as a guest on “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens” on Comedy Central and ABC, respectively, in 2019. Later that year, it was revealed that he would star in “Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” from Marvel Studios.
The movie was the first prominent Marvel production with an Asian cast, so it was a big event for many superhero fans. In 2021, Shang Chi made an appearance on television.
Earnings and Net Worth
Simu has advanced considerably since she was a set extra. Even though Kim’s Convenience garnered a lot of media attention, he has said that the CBC sitcom didn’t bring in a lot of money. Despite how popular the show was, he criticized the producers for paying actors poorly.
However, it may be believed that it has changed since he first appeared in the MCU. The success of his film at the box office indicates that he will continue to work with Marvel. Simu Liu’s studio pay is unknown, although it represents a sizable percentage of his $19 million fortune.
Simu revealed his relationship with Jade Bender in 2022. A year before to this, he made an appearance as a prospective buyer and Chrishell Stause served as his agent on the Netflix real estate series Selling Sunset. He ultimately settled in Los Angeles, California, and bought a $6.8 million house there.
