Xian Lim landed his first major role as the lead character’s love interest in the television series My Binondo Girl. This launched his now widely-popular love team with Kim Chiu, who he has since been paired with in the soaps Ina, Kapatid, Anak and The Story of Us as well as the romcom hits Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?--for which the pair earned their title as the newest blockbuster royalties of their generation, Bride for Rent, Past Tense, Must Date the Playboy and All You Need is Pag-Ibig.
He has also appeared with his Star Magic batchmates in My Cactus Heart and The Reunion; with local show business’ comedy superstars in Mamarazzi; and with no less than the Star for All Seasons, Vilma Santos, in Everything About Her. He was also tapped to replace Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington Bear for the film animation’s release in the Philippines.
Xian has also come out with two solo albums under Star Records: XL2 and his debut album So It’s You, which has now reached Platinum.
