Biography

Early life and Miss Chinese International
Liu was born in Prince Rupert, British Columbia on January 6, 1979. She attended Pineridge Elementary School and Prince Rupert Secondary School. After graduating from secondary school, she moved to Vancouver to attend University of British Columbia but Liu did not complete her business degree. Although both of her parents spoke Cantonese, she had limited knowledge of the language. For the fastest and easiest way to learn it, her friends recommended she enter the Miss Chinese (Vancouver) Pageant, which she did in 2000. The pageant is an annual beauty contest organized by Fairchild Television, and it helps selects Vancouver representatives to enter the Miss Chinese International Pageant of Hong Kong. Eventually, she won the crown along with the title "Miss Photogenic." She then represented Vancouver and entered the promising Miss Chinese International Pageant a year later and took the Miss Chinese International 2001 title, as well as winning the "Miss Cosmopolitan" and "Miss Talent" awards. Soon after, Liu was offered an artist contract to Hong Kong's leading television company, TVB, the same channel that hosted the Miss Chinese International pageant. Eventually, she signed the contract with the support of her father, who was willing to give up work in Vancouver to help Liu develop her career in Hong Kong.


Career
Liu received her first role that same year and portrayed Princess Sam-tin in the 2001 costume sitcom, Virtues of Harmony. The sitcom was a ratings hit, becoming a popular prime-time family watch for the audiences of Hong Kong. Originally an 100-episode sitcom, TVB extended the sitcom to 300 half-hour episodes, becoming the longest costume sitcom TVB has ever produced. Liu's role as the runaway princess was also highly recognized, and she became unofficially nicknamed as "Princess" by fans and the media for a while. However, in her early acting career, her portrayal earned mixed reviews due her lack of fluency in Cantonese.
