As an adolescent Osric Chau had wanted to pursue a career as a stunt actor. His passion for stunts led him to perform a stunt for the American video game company Electronic Arts (EA) and play a role in the Chinese version of What Women Want. In the long run, Chau chose acting and made his debut in the television series Kung Fu Killer.
He made his first movie appearance in the movie 2012 and then played the role of Kevin Tran in the CW series Supernatural.
The fast-rising actor was born on July 20, 1986, in British Columbia, Canada, the son of a father from Hong Kong and a mother from Malaysia. He is Canadian with Canadian citizenship and mixed ethnicity. He has a younger brother named Own Chaun and other siblings whose identity is known to the public.
Chau began his journey to fame in 2000 when he was trained in Wing Chun for eight years. He then studied Chinese martial arts, traditional Wushu and Tai Chi under the guidance of Zhang Ahi Bing, a renowned Chinese martial arts teacher from Harbin.
After completing his studies four years later, he returned to China and began studying the Chinese martial arts of the West Coast in Vancouver under the guidance of Bruce Fontaine, who taught him modern Wushu – a performance-based martial art.
After a successful training with Bruce, Chau trained with the Wushu team of the Beijing Sports University for seven months in 2007 to prepare for the Canadian national team’s exam. Later, after a successful outing, he became a member of the Canadian national Wushu team.
Who Is Osric Chau’s Girlfriend?
As a private and quiet person, Osric Chau is not a big fan of interviews. During the few times he sat down for an interview, he even shied away from many delicate questions about his private life. According to what we found out, the charming martial artist is currently dating a prominent Chinese artist. The last time he was urged to reveal the identity of his loved ones, he boldly declared that his relationship with this person was a private matter between them and not between him and the public.
So it is now clear that Chau is in love with someone. Questions about his love life have been of great interest to the public for so many years, and the least he can do is to come clean, and we are glad that he has done so.
