Liu Shishi, also known by her English name Cecilia Liu, is a popular Chinese actress and ballerina. Before the 27-year-old began her acting career, Shishi’s heart was taken by dance. She was trained in ballet at the Beijing Dance Academy. It wasn’t until 2005 that Shishi made her acting debut on the television drama series called The Moon and the Wind.
After multiple roles described as the “gentle, kind, and understanding maiden,” Shishi took a different route with her acting career by taking on more mature roles.
In 2011, she starred in two successful dramas The Vigilantes In Masks and Scarlet Heart which earned her the “Magnolia Award” for the most popular actress. She recently filmed a sequel to Scarlet Heart which is expected to air sometime this year.
Going along with her transition to more mature roles, Liu Shishi dazzles us with her sophisticated fashion shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong. Clearly comfortable with her mature and sexy demeanor, Shishi commands attention with her photos.
