Fiona Xie

Fiona Xie Wan Yu (simplified Chinese: 谢宛谕; pinyin: Xiè Wǎnyù; born January 24, 1982) is a Singaporean television actress.

Xie was spotted by a talent scout at the age of fifteen while was studying in St. Hilda's Secondary School. She modeled for numerous print and television commercials in Singapore and Hong Kong before joining MediaCorp Studios as a full-time artiste in 2001.

Xie made her acting debut as a nurse in the local hit drama series, Growing Up. Her convincing acting landed her one of her most recognizable roles in the sitcom, My Genie. In 2001, she won "Best Newcomer Award" at Mediacorp's Star Awards after just over a year in show business.

Of late, Xie has become known for her talents as a bilingual variety show hostess, in particular of the long-running series, City Beat. She has since hosted other variety shows, such as the photography-based "Say Cheez" for Channel 8, and introducing celebrities' favourite hawker foods in "Coffee Talk and Hawker Woks" for Channel 5. Recently she and actor Ben Yeo also hosted the travel show "Weekend Escapade".

In 2004, Xie made the news when she had to run with Jeanette Aw, Xiao Qiao and Felicia Chin, in bikinis, along the crowded Orchard Road for the drama series "The Champion". She later admitted in an interview that she wore another bikini top underneath, to prevent accidental exposure. That scene alone earned Fiona the nickname of "Boing Boing".

Besides her work as host and actress, Xie has also endorsed numerous products because of her popularity with the mainstream population. These range from Marigold juices to Osim massage products.

In 2005, Fiona was voted as sexiest woman for the "FHM Top 100 Sexiest Women Singapore" list, even though she had never posed for FHM before. She continued to be ranked among the Top 10 for the FHM lists in the next 3 years.
