Guan Xiaotong (Chinese: 关晓彤; born 17 September 1997) is a Chinese actress. She is known for her roles in films The Left Ear and Shadow; and the television series To Be a Better Man.[1]

Known as the "Nation's Daughter" in China, Guan is regarded as one of the "Four Dan actresses of the post-90s Generation" (Chinese: 90后四小花旦), along with Zheng Shuang, Zhou Dongyu and Yang Zi.[2]


Guan was born to a family of actors in Beijing. Her father, Guan Shaozeng, was an actor, and her grandfather, Guan Xuezeng was the founder of Beijing Qinshu [zh].[3] From an early age, her family encouraged a passion for the arts, and she first starred in Nuan at the age of six.

In 2016, Guan was admitted into the Beijing Film Academy after placing first in both the practical and written section of the Chinese College Entrance Examinations.[4]


Guan first gained attention when she starred in Nuan,[5] adapted from author Mo Yan's short story, The White Dog and the Swing. The film garnered positive reception from both China and Japan. The same year, she starred in Electric Shadows.[6]

Guan rose to prominence as a child actress through Chen Kaige's film The Promise, playing the younger counterpart of Cecilia Cheung's character. She continued to build up her filmography, starring in television series and films.[6]

Her popularity rose as she starred in the 2014 television series May December Love, which received high ratings in China. She also starred in One Servant of Two Masters, which won her the Best Supporting Actress award at the Hengdian Film and TV Festival of China.[7] Following the airing of these dramas, Guan was dubbed as the "Nation's Daughter" by the Chinese media.[8][9]

In 2015, Guan starred in coming-of-age film The Left Ear,[10] and won the Most Promising Actress award at the inaugural Gold Aries Award held by Macau International Movie Festival.[11] The same year, she also released her first solo album, Eighteen.[12]

In 2016, Guan starred in the family drama Papa Can You Hear Me Sing, a remake of the classic Taiwanese film of the same name.[13] She then starred in the romance drama To Be A Better Man.[14] Both series earned high ratings in China, and Guan won the Best Supporting Actress award at the Shanghai Television Festival for her performance in To Be a Better Man.[15] She also starred in her first adult leading role in the fantasy drama Novoland: Castle in the Sky,[16] and won the Best Actress award at the 7th Macau International Television Festival for her performance.[17]

In 2017, Guan played the female lead in xianxia drama Xuan-Yuan Sword: Han Cloud and romance comedy series Love of Aurora.[18][19]

In 2018, Guan headlined the historical romance drama Untouchable Lovers as well as sports romantic comedy series Sweet Combat.[20][21] The same year, Guan starred in Zhang Yimou's wuxia film, Shadow,[22] receiving positive reviews for her portrayal of the double-faced princess.[23] The same year, she was cast in the fantasy romance film Turandot alongside Dylan Sprouse,[24] and romance comedy film Xx Love.[25]

In 2019, Guan was cast in the female-centric youth modern drama Nothing But Twenty.[26]

Social activities[edit]

In 2017, Guan became the ambassador for "World Life Day", a joint campaign by the United Nations Environment Programme, International Fund for Animal Welfare and The Nature Conservancy.[27]

Personal life[edit]

On October 8, 2017, it was announced that Guan is in a relationship with Chinese actor-singer Lu Han, her co-star in Sweet Combat.[28][29]
