Edwin Siu (born 23 March 1977) is a Hong Kong actor and singer.

Biography[edit]

Siu became popular in high school as a singer. In 2001, he distinguished himself in a singing contest and was signed by Music Nation as a singer.[1] After a fierce competition with new singers including Juno Mak and Shawn Yue, he won the Rookie of the Year award. However, Siu's initial success ended abruptly after he made a controversial statement and his career plummeted. He was sent to Beijing and was no longer supported by his record company, preventing him from releasing any new albums. Siu eventually returned to Hong Kong and signed with TVB as an actor.[2]

In 2012, he starred in a TV drama Daddy Good Deeds and played a chararacter with an image that subverted his early career. In response to his role, Siu remarked that “It was too easy for me to succeed in the past, then I become arrogant. I often lost my temper when I felt unhappy with some small thing. But now I knew that rather to have a sudden rise in life, I prefer to work hard step-by-step. I was fortunately to have this opportunity to reintroduce my image to the public.” [3] In addition to his role on Daddy Good Deeds, he also sang the series' theme song, which was very well received.[4]
