Liu Haoran stars in Detective Chinatown 2. XINHUA
One of the great lessons Liu Haoran has learned from his dad is how to keep a level head.
The 20-year-old’s father used to be a soldier, so Liu grew up with strict parenting. This is probably why he realized at a young age that he needed to create his own future by working hard. And he still lives by this rule today. “I know if I want to add some positive adjectives in front of the word ‘actor’, I have to gain a variety of acting experience,” he told nanrenwo.net.
His latest work, Detective Chinatown 2, came out last month in Chinese mainland cinemas. In the hit movie, he plays a clever detective.
In real life, Liu is as intelligent as the young detective he plays in the movie. In 2015, the actor scored over 100 more points than he needed in the national college entrance exam to get accepted into the Central Academy of Drama. Yet despite his fame, he still works really hard at his studies, because “I need to learn more to become a great actor”, he told NetEase Entertainment.
