Born in Hong Kong and raised there and in the Los Angeles area, Byron Mann first came to the attention of US audiences with an appearance as a gifted student interviewed by "Murphy Brown" in 1993. The following year, the handsome actor appeared as a fist-flinging hustler opposite Jean-Claude Van Damme in "Street Fighter" (1994) and in two direct-to-video releases, Fred Olen Ray's "Possessed by the Night" and "Deadly Target/Fire Zone." Mann went on to appear an aristocratic killer alongside Rae Dawn Chong in "Crying Freeman" (1996). He has also made appearances on the syndicated series "Time Trax" and on CBS' "Murder, She Wrote."
