Chris Pang joins the 2nd season of popular Netflix/ The Weinstein Company’s Marco Polo as a recurring role. The adventure drama created by John Fusco will see Pang as “Arban”, a weathered young chieftain who becomes tangled in the bloody politics of the time and who ultimately seals the outcome of the election for the next Khan of Mongolia.
Pang can be seen in the recently released Netflix/ The Weinstein Company production Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2: Sword of Destiny, the sequel to Ang Lee-directed 2000 martial arts epic, as “Flying Blade” - a highly skilled and noble martial arts fighter who leads his comrades to defend the Green Destiny sword.
Chris Pang is an Australian actor whose breakout role was a lead and love interest to the protagonist in Paramount’s Tomorrow When The War Began, a box office hit which excelled to be the highest grossing Australian film of 2010 and went on to collect many IF and AFI awards; also subsequently breaking DVD sales records in Australia. His feature film debut, however, was a lead role in Citizen Jia Li (2008) for which he won an Asians on Film (LA) ‘Best Actor’ award. He is actively engaged in developing projects and is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese as well as an aficionado of martial arts disciplines.
Chris Pang has steadily built a stable of film and television credits since Tomorrow, When the War Began (2010). The success of the film was followed by a number of Australian television appearances on shows such as AFI Award winning series Rush, critically acclaimed Tangle and City Homicide. Pang would next appear on film alongside Aaron Eckhart and Bill Nighy in Lakeshore’s I, Frankenstein (2014), as “Levi”, a clinical and efficient warrior of the Order of Gargoyles. The Mule (2014) with Hugo Weaving, saw Pang play “Phuk”, the antagonist’s (John Noble) not-so-loyal calm but deadly muscle. Most recently Chris was seen in Superfast!(2015), the comedy spoof of the Fast and Furious franchise as “The Cool Asian Guy”- a parody of Sun Kang’s character in the series.
