Tiffany Ann Hsu (traditional Chinese: 許瑋甯; simplified Chinese: 许玮宁; pinyin: Xǔ Wěinìng; Wade–Giles: Hsu3 Wei3 Ning4) was born on 7 August 1984 in the United States. She is an Italian-Taiwanese model and actress.[1] She is under the management of Catwalk modellng agency[2] and well known for her role in Taiwanese drama, It Started With A Kiss and its sequel, They Kiss Again. She also worked as a VJ for MTV Taiwan.


Hsu's father is an Italian-American and her mother is Taiwanese, but before Hsu was born her father left her mother, leaving Hsu's mother to raise Hsu with the assistance of her grandfather, grandmother, and her mother's other family members.[3] Hsu graduated from Taipei Hwa Kang Arts School and Chinese Cultural University with a major in Drama Acting. Friends call her by her middle name, Ann, which is also the English name listed on her agency's profile webpage.[4] She was first noticed by Catwalk Agency when she participated in a talent casting for MTV Taiwan and was then signed up to be a model in 2003.

In 2004, Hsu appeared in her first TV series Jia You Fei Fei and sang the theme song "甜姐辣妹". In 2005, she starred in the series It Started With A Kiss as second female lead. In 2007, Hsu appeared in her first movie Amour-Legende. In 2009, Hsu starred in the idol drama ToGetHer and Autumn's Concerto. In 2011, Hsu starred as the second female lead of the TV drama Love You. In 2012, Hsu starred in the micro-film Wishing for Happiness. She also starred as the female lead for the first time in the romance-drama series, Love Me or Leave Me (Taiwan TV series), as a woman who was afraid of getting married but then regretted her decision when another woman tried to steal her boyfriend. In 2013, she starred in her first movie as female lead in 7 Love Design. Hsu also starred in the China-Singapore co-production TV movie Cupid's World of Happiness alongside Leon Jay Williams.[5] This 40-minute long microfilm (four episodes of 10-minutes each) was about two vacationers unexpectedly meeting and finding love with each other through a series of adventures during their stay at Resorts World Sentosa.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Hsu is currently dating Ethan Ruan. They first met at a photo shoot while Ruan was visiting some model friends of his.[7] The couple revealed two years ago that they planned to marry in 2014, and last year, both even said that they “could get married any time”.[8]
