KENNY LEU was born in Taiwan, but grew up in the Bay Area.
Growing up in a modest immigrant household, Kenny's aspirations were simple: to make a living, and to make his parents proud. After earning a Mechanical Engineering degree from UC Berkeley, he helped to found a Silicon Valley startup, which was successfully sold in 2013. Having achieved his dreams early and wanting to represent the community he grew up in, Kenny turned his focus on creating positive images of Asian Americans. He decided to became an actor, moving to Los Angeles in 2014.
Kenny is currently best known for playing GOHAN on DRAGONBALL Z: LIGHT OF HOPE on YouTube, but he has also appeared on several TV shows: NCIS, THE PLAYER. Catch him soon on THE LONG ROAD HOME, and as the lead of an untitled independent feature.
Outside of acting, he was a member of the United States Wushu team from 2010 - 2012 (Chinese martial arts, specializing in open hand, Chinese broadsword, and staff), winning medals all over the world. Having been born in Taiwan, he also speaks fluent Mandarin.
