 Ken Leung Biography

Kenneth "Ken" Leung was born in New York City and initially raised in the Two Bridges section of the Lower East Side of Manhattan. His family moved to Midwood, Brooklyn where he grew up before finishing high school in Old Bridge, New Jersey

Leung later attended New York University (NYU) as a University Scholar and discovered acting in his junior year, when he studied acting with Catherine Russell and Nan Smithner and then briefly with Anne Jackson at HB Studio.

During this time he acted mostly in downtown spaces and black box theaters, working with groups such as the Ma-Yi Theater Company, New Perspectives, and STAR, a traveling group of actors-educators based in Mount Sinai Hospital.

In 1997, Leung made his debut in Brett Ratner's Rush Hour. Ratner stated, "[Ken]'s a great actor. In my opinion, he's equivalent to Philip Seymour Hoffman as far as talent is concerned."

He would later work with Ratner in the films Red Dragon, The Family Man, and X-Men: The Last Stand. Edward Norton cast him in his directorial debut "Keeping the Faith" in 2000. Since then Leung has appeared in several independent and television films, as well as features, including four films with Brett Ratner and two with Spike Lee.

In 1998, he played James the Less and God in Terrence McNally's passion play, Corpus Christi, and in 2002 made his Broadway debut in the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie (and appears on the cast recording).

In 2007, he starred in the independent film Shanghai Kiss with Hayden Panettiere, and earned a Special Mention at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.

That same year he guest-starred in the final season of the HBO drama series The Sopranos. He followed this with the ABC drama Lost as Miles Straume from the series' fourth season through the rest of its run. Though a later addition to the cast of Lost, this magnetic New York-trained actor quickly became one of our favorites to watch each week.

Leung's television credits include a recurring role on Law & Order and guest appearances on The Sopranos, Oz, Wonderland, The Jury and Whoopi. He made his Broadway debut in the Tony Award winning musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie.
