Marli Siu developed her acting skills at National Youth Theater in Elgin. Later, she enrolled at Edinburgh Napier University, majoring in acting and English literature.
After graduating from university, she was active in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. She often commuted to London to attend various auditions.
Her first acting project came in 2014 where she got to star as minor roles in two different movies, Run and Scoring, all at once. It was a good kickstart for her acting career.
Two years later, she made a small-screen debut in the TV series Still Game. It was then followed by another TV series in 2017 titled Dixi.
That very year, she was also involved in the theatrical play called Misalliance and yet another movie called Anna and the Apocalypse.
She got her big breakthrough after playing a bigger role in the TV series Everything I Know About Love alongside both new and veteran stars.
