Li Xiaoran (born May 8, 1976 in Beijing, China) is a Chinese actress. Apart from her acting career, she is also a dancer, having graduated from Beijing Dance Academy in 1993. She became famous by means of her role in Love Story in Shanghai (像雾像雨又像风), Vancouver (别了,温哥华).

Born in Beijing, Li Xiaoran (Chinese name:李小冉) graduated from Beijing Dance Academy. At the age of 17, Li was the only dancer who recruited into the Oriental Song and Dance Troupe from Beijing.

During her nine-years as a professional dancer, Li also worked on a few commercial films, which brought her more offers to perform on screen. However, without any professional acting training, Li never thought she could quit her simple life to be an actress. She didn’t audition for any role until until 1996. Her first attempt was a guest performer in the TV series "Jade Baby of Body Guard".

Despite only appearing twice, Li fell in love with the rich life of acting. In the following three years from 1997 to 2000, Li shuttled back and forth between 9 TV series and films. Almost without any time to rest, Li tried to improve her acting skills through practice. Finally, her efforts paid off. In 2001, Li embraced her big success in the popular TV drama "Love Story In Shanghai" as Anqi, the girl who sells flowers.

Following that success, her filming invitations never stopped. In 2002, Li marched onto the big screen. She challenged herself with two horror films by director Liu Xiaoguang, better known as 'A Gun', the ghost director of China.

In 2006, Li Xiaoran played a straight forward girl who lost her life to save her lover in the action film "Dragon Tiger Gate". In 2009, Li joined China’s famous director Zhang Yang’s urban romance film "Unmanned Driving".

On the small screen, Li Xiaoran interpreted different types of women in shows like "Farewell, Vancouver", "Night of Harbin" and "The Old Dream", just name a few. Li Xiaoran never stops chasing her acting dream, to create more memorable characters for the audience.
