If there is someone who I admire for having the courage to change his career path it is Simu Liu, a young man who studied finance and accounting at the University of Western Ontario but who had the balls to follow his dream to turn to acting. First starring in the tv show Kim’s Convenience, Liu is making his mark by joining the Marvel Universe as its first Asian super hero Shang-Chi.
But Liu is not the first in my list of actors to make a transition from one profession to another. Actor Pam Grier (Coffy, Jackie Brown) was another super woman who before doing action films was doing pre-med in college.
It can be done.
