Liu Ye is a well-respected Chinese actor who rose to fame early in his career and has also garnered international acclaim. Born in Changchun, Jilin province, he graduated from Beijing's Central Academy of Drama majoring in performing arts. He began his acting career while still a student and was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his film role in Postman in the Mountains (1999) at the Golden Rooster Awards, the equivalent of Academy Awards in China.

He rose to critical fame with the challenging role of a young homosexual man in the film, Lan Yu (2001), and won Best Actor at Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards. This award-winning film was banned in mainland China due to its taboo subject. Nevertheless, he won Best Actor at the Golden Rooster Awards for his performance in The Foliage (2003). Other notable films are Balzac and the Little Seamstress (2002), Purple Butterfly (2003), The Floating Landscape (2003), and Dark Matter (2007) which co-starred Meryl Streep and won the Alfred P. Sloan prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

He also starred in the City of Life and Death (2009), A Beautiful Life (2011) and The Last Supper (2012). Liu has also been active in TV dramas such as Assassinator Jing Ke (2003), and A Woman's Epic Poem (2008).

In spite of his handsome looks, Liu has focused on character portrayals in challenging roles. For the 2011 film, The Founding of a Party, he ate 20 eggs daily to gain 22 pounds in order to play Mao Zedong.
