BIOGRAPHY

Actor Rich Ting was born in Los Angeles, California, and is a 4th-generation Asian American of mixed descent. An athlete while growing up, Ting played collegiate football at Yale University while earning a B.A, and then went on to achieve a dual J.D./M.B.A. degree.

Ting got his first big break as an actor when he was cast in the TV series, Beyond the Break. He began appearing in projects with guest roles on major hit shows such as NCIS: Los Angeles, Supergirl, and Chicago P.D. He split his time between the US and Asia for several years after being cast for the lead role of “Xon Sa Ma;” in the historic film, Huyen Su Thien Do, commemorating one thousand years of Thang Long – Hanoi and on the Korean drama television series, Iris. His determination and work ethic landed him a role in the blockbuster film Lone Survivor opposite Mark Wahlberg as well as on Salt alongside Angelina Jolie. He is also seen performing stunts as a 1st-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do in G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, The Green Hornet, Gamer, and Crank 2: High Voltage.

In 2018, Ting was cast as the iconic character “Bolo” in the Cinemax drama series Warrior, a television series inspired by the writings and work of Bruce Lee. He can also be seen in Paramount Network’s Waco alongside Michael Shannon and Taylor Kitsch. In 2019, Ting was cast on Amazon’s Season 4 of The Man in the High Castle as “Captain Iijima,” a driven, ambitious young detective in the Japanese Kempeitai. In 2020, Ting can be seen on CBS’s Tommy as “Li Chang,” a Chinese-American, boyish, athletic, smart, and successful devoted dad to a recently adopted five-month-old baby girl from China. He was also cast as “Mr. Kitano” in the feature film, Roma 96. In 2021, Ting can be seen on FX’s The Old Man opposite Jeff Bridges streaming on Hulu. He was also cast in the Western feature film, No Name and Dynamite Davenport, where he plays the lead character of ‘Dynamite Davenport.’ Ting was also cast in his first video game and will be debuting in 2K’s new action/fantasy video game as one of the lead heroes. (Due to contractual agreements, the title of the 2K video game, as well as Ting’s character, cannot be disclosed at this time.)

Ting currently lives in Los Angeles, CA. In addition to working in film and television, he’s still active in the martial arts world, loves to travel to exotic places, and is a true foodie at heart.
