Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A character actor known for his intense, often unnerving portrayals, Ken Leung not only impressed audiences, but virtually every director who had worked with him. After years of stage work and several small roles in indie films and on television, he found a powerful advocate in director Brett Ratner, who first cast him in the action-comedy "Rush Hour" (1998) and later in the thriller "Red Dragon" (2002).
