Nie Yuan (born 17 March 1978) is a Chinese actor best known for his numerous television performances, some of his more notable roles include: Hu Fei, in Fox Volant of the Snowy Mountain (2006); Li Ke, in Zhen Guan Chang Ge (2007); Zhao Yun, in Three Kingdoms (2010); Tang Sanzang, in Journey to the West (2011).

Early life[edit]

Nie was born in Zhenyuan County, Guizhou. His parents named his elder brother and him "Zhen" and "Yuan" respectively to remind them not to forget their hometown (Zhenyuan). When Nie recalled his adolescent days, he saw himself as a "youth-at-risk" then – he secretly joined the Guiyang Dance Class without informing his parents; when he was around 15 and 16 years old, he smoked, got into fights, and ran away from home. His worried parents sent him to enlist in the People's Liberation Army. Nie later enrolled in the Shanghai Theatre Academy after completing his service in the army. However, he behaved insolently in the academy and was almost expelled for poor conduct, but a teacher appealed for him to stay. After this incident, he became more mature and changed his rebellious ways.

Career[edit]

Nie first started acting when he was still in the Shanghai Theatre Academy. He was a "highly productive" actor, as he described in his own words, "In times when I was playing with my life, I could finish filming one episode in two days. I tried completing filming a 140 episodes television drama and one movie in a year. This can be taken as a record."

In 2000, after graduating from the academy, Nie and his first girlfriend, actress Huang Yi, collaborated in the television drama Wrong Carriage, Right Groom. Nie did not receive much acclaim for his performance while in contrast, Huang Yi was very successful. In 2001, Nie worked on Tianxia Liangcang with director Wu Ziniu, and was noted for his outstanding performance. Following that, Nie acted in the period dramas Love Legend of the Tang Dynasty, Eternity: A Chinese Ghost Story, Hanxue Baoma, and Zhen Guan Chang Ge, and experienced a surge in popularity for his portrayal of good-looking young men dressed in ancient Chinese costumes.

In 2004, Nie was named by the Chinese media as one of the "Mainland's New Four Young Actors", along with Huang Xiaoming, Tong Dawei and Yin Xiaotian. That year, producer Zhang Jizhong was searching for someone to portray the lead character Yang Guo in his wuxia television series The Return of the Condor Heroes. Nie was a popular choice for "Yang Guo" and he participated in the audition as well, but eventually lost the role to Huang Xiaoming, who was not as popular as him then. Huang Xiaoming's performance in The Return of the Condor Heroes propelled him to fame, while in contrast, Nie did not advance much in his career. It was said that Nie and Huang developed a rivalry over the incident, but in a 2010 interview, Nie admitted that he did feel depressed when he lost the opportunity to act as Yang Guo, but also stated that his feud with Huang Xiaoming is not true.[1]

From 2008 onwards, Nie's career took an upturn when he starred in the television series Three Kingdoms (2010) and Journey to the West (2011), adaptations of two of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. In 2011, he also acted in the films The Last Supper and The Flowers of War.

Personal life[edit]

When he was in his third year at Shanghai Theatre Academy, Nie met actress Huang Yi and started a relationship with her. They also acted together as a couple in the television drama Wrong Carriage, Right Groom. They broke up later as they pursued their respective careers.[2]

Around 2003, Nie started a new relationship, this time with Liu Yun (劉芸), whom he first met when they were working together in the television series Hanxue Baoma. They were later paired up again in Dahan Jinguo (2004). Nie and Liu separated in 2006, and they did not want to mention anything about their relationship again.[3]

On 28 September 28, 2008, Nie married actress Yang Guang (陽光). Their wedding was held in Beijing and more than 300 guests were invited.[4] They divorced in 2012.

In early 2014, Nie married actress Qin Ziyue (秦子越), who had a minor role in Journey to the West (2011). Their daughter was born on 8 May that year.
