| ||Shu Pei-Pei was born on 28 November 1948 in Shanghai as the first child of her parents from Ningbo, Zhejiang province. Shu came to Hong Kong with her mother and siblings at the age of 10. Despite her humble origins, Shu had a chance to learn ballet and singing during childhood. In 1966, Shu became the first runner-up in the "Miss Seiko Beauty Contest" co-organized by Seiko and Shaw Brothers, from which she received a five-year contract. Since joining the Shaw Brothers, Shu was assigned to perform dancing in "The Mating Season" co-starred by Peter Chen Hou and Pat Ting Hung. Meanwhile, she was studying in the sixth plenum of the "Southern Experimental Theatre". Before graduation, she was selected by director Hsu Cheng-Hung to play the supporting actress in "The Thundering Sword". Within a few years she had played in countless wuxia films. After her contract with Shaw Brothers expired in 1973, Shu got married and gave birth to a son a year later. Then she worked in a travel agency for some 20 years and was promoted to the management.
