Michael Miu Kiu-wai (born 18 June 1958) is a Hong Kong television and film actor. He was considered as one of the most popular young actors of the 1980s, and along with Tony Leung, Andy Lau, Felix Wong, and Kent Tong, he was a member of TVB's Five Tigers. Miu's trade mark role was as the dashing and suave wuxia Knight-errant, although he is perhaps best known for the villainous Yeung Hong in the 1983 TV drama The Legend of the Condor Heroes.



Born in Zhoushan, Zhejiang in 1958, Miu and his mother moved to Hong Kong to rejoin his father when he was five. Miu rarely saw his father, a merchant mariner, and was mainly raised by his mother. Miu's father contracted cancer and he was forced to work to support the family. He was originally a furniture making apprentice, but the work did not pay well.



Miu was recruited into TVB's Artiste Training Academy in September 1979. While he was a trainee, he made cameo appearances in several major dramas, such as the 1980 The Bund. Miu's debut character role was in the 1980 The Adventurer's. Immediately after graduating from the training academy, Miu was offered a major role in the 1981 thriller drama The Lonely Hunter, starring alongside his classmate Felix Wong with seniors Carol Cheng and Money Chan.



From 1981 to 1986, Miu together with Tony Leung, Andy Lau, Felix Wong, and Kent Tong were promoted as TVB's Five Tigers, a group of five of the most popular young actors in Hong Kong at the time. In 1987 Miu left TVB, investing in a company manufacturing and selling glasses. In 1990, he married TVB actress Jaime Chik, and together they left the entertainment business to start a family and have since had two children.



During the 90s Michael Miu devoted himself to business and earned a reputation as a business man. Selling his company to an Australian company in 2002, he returned to TVB and acting in 2004 beginning with a comeback performance in the cop drama The Academy, playing middle aged roles.
