Simu Liu thanks his former employer for sacking him from his accounting position.

Simu Liu, the actor of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” stated on Instagram that he partially credits his acting career to being fired from an embarrassing accounting position. The actor said it all started with him being fired from his job on April 12 ten years ago. The actor rose to fame with the Canadian TV drama “Kim’s Convenience” and eventually landed the superhero role in the Marvel film franchise. The actor, 32, began the essay with the caption, “So this is a whole a** essay, but the gist of it is that ten years ago today I was let go from my job as an accountant at Deloitte and although it devastated me at the time, it ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me. I was led back onto the floor in front of the entire open concept office by an HR employee and a security guard. You could have heard a pin drop because everything was that silent. Nobody made a move, said anything encouraging, or even just turned to look at me. I fought back tears of humiliation, grabbed my things, and never looked back,” the actor recalled. Liu said he thought his life was over in that moment because he felt he had wasted “countless time and money” that his family had invested in him. It is really only been these past three years that anything I have done has begun to bear any fruit. Though Liu credited ‘luck’ as a major factor in his acting career, he is confident that he would have found his “purpose” in life regardless. “Another three years were spent trying to break into Hollywood, sinking my precious life savings into something many would call a pipe dream.” He also thanked his former boss and company for helping him realize that he was living his life for someone else, writing, “Not my parents’ definition – MINE. I do not know who needs to hear this right now, but no amount of money is worth compromising your vision for yourself. The pursuit of a dream, YOUR dream, against all odds, that is what life’s all about. Happy April 12th, Instagram.”
