Leilani Shiu is a talented Chinese SAG - Screen Actors Guild - actress born in Canada, known for her roles in popular Disney+ live-action series such as "Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022)," "The Mandalorian (2019)," and "The Book of Boba Fett (2021)." She has captivated audiences with her portrayal of the enigmatic Jawa Teeka in the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series, the first Jawa to be given a name and speak on screen. Shiu's versatility and dedication to her craft have earned her a loyal following and established her as a rising star in the realm of science fiction and fantasy entertainment.


In addition to her on-screen work, Shiu has made waves in the entertainment industry with her engaging presence at numerous Comic Conventions globally, including "Fan Expo" and "Comic Cons." - the largest comic conventions - including multiple cities across the United States and as far as Japan.  Fans have had the opportunity to meet Shiu in person and hear about her experiences working on the hit Disney+ series. Her interactions with fans and commitment to her roles have solidified her status as a fan favorite and a promising talent in blockbuster entertainment.


Represented by Avalos Management and with a strong online presence on platforms like Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook, Shiu continues to engage with her fan.  Her credits also include roles in projects like "Rebel Moon" and the video game "Catatonic," further demonstrating her range and versatility as an artist.



With over 60 VIP guests and 100 exhibitors at events like The Pasadena Comic Con, I had the fortune to meet Shiu personally as she contributes to connect with fans from around the world. As she continues to make her mark in television and film, fans eagerly anticipate her future projects and the exciting opportunities that lie ahead for this talented actress.  She tirelessly works with the nonprofits charities approved and recognized by George Lucas’s LucasFilm specifically Saber Guilds, 501st Legions, and Rebel Alliances. The Force is truly strong with Leilani Shiu and her presence in the Star Wars franchise.
