Rhydian Vaughan’s Chinese surname was taken from the transliteration of his English name. He was born in Avignon, France, and spent his childhood years in Europe. His father is a British violinist and his mother, Sun Li-Tsuei, is the founder of the ‘Shang Orientheatre’. When she gave birth to him in 1988, she saw a small mountain from the window of her delivery room, hence the name “Xiao-Yue”. Rhydian Vaughan returned to live in Taiwan during his primary school years. He now studies drama in the UK.
