Kendrick Ong

I'm not Jackie Chan's brother

About Me

I’m the person that most people only read about in fairy tales: the intrepid adventurer; the questing knight; the world traveller. I’ve never chosen the safe, conservative path. I’ve always forged my own way.

I am a unique individual. I don’t play stereotypes. When I lived in Beijing, a few of the locals told me that they knew I wasn’t from around town because I walked with far too much confidence. “You walk like a North American,” they told me. I took it as a compliment.

I’m an actor, which is to write that I am at my most creative when I am in front of a camera pretending to be someone else. I’m very physical. I have a strong on-screen presence. I’ve been Romeo in Romeo & Juliet. Yes, that is me in Snowpiercer. Hell, I even met Orlando Bloom while working on the set of Unlocked (I had a message for him from a long-forgotten acquaintance).

I’m Canadian. In the past 15 years, I’ve lived in three different countries. I have a keen interest in martial arts and I’m trained in advanced stage combat. I love learning new skills, which has led to the acquisition of a very eclectic skill-set, which includes building computer systems, falconry, firearms, and web design. Currently, I’m studying French.

If you’re looking for the next Kwai Chang Caine, then I suggest you move on.

Otherwise, I’m the next big thing.
