Osric Chau


20 Jul 1986


Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada


Osric Chau was born in Vancouver, Canada, to a father from Hong Kong and a mother from Malaysia. He had spent years training martial arts with aspirations to work in stunts when he landed his first leading role alongside the late David Carradine in "Kung Fu Killer" that was shot in Hengdian, China.

The following year Osric played Nima, the Tibetan monk, in Roland Emmerich's "2012" that grossed over $760 million worldwide. That success brought Osric back to China where he worked on the Chinese Remake of "What Women Want" alongside Andy Lau and Gong Li and "Man with the Iron Fists" with Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu and the RZA.

In 2011 Osric landed another leading role in Paramount's "Fun Size" with Victoria Justice, Thomas Mann and Jane Levy. The Halloween comedy also includes Chelsea Handler and Johnny Knoxville.

In the process Osric has more than found a passion for acting and filmmaking. He still enjoys stunts, and has enormous appreciation of the skill and sacrifices involved but he'll settle with doing as many of his own stunts as a production will allow.

"Man with the Iron Fist" and "Fun Size" are both scheduled for an October, 26th, 2012 release.
