Future Asian & Pacific History Month: Ludi Lin Isn't Afraid of a Challenge

Future Asian & Pacific History Month: Ludi Lin Isn't Afraid of a Challenge

Fuse is celebrating Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month by looking at a variety of rising forces who are creating Future Asian and Pacific History before our eyes. Today we're honoring Ludi Lin, the Chinese-Canadian actor who lit up this year's silver screen as the Black Ranger in the highly anticipated Power Rangers reboot.

The 29-year-old newcomer, born in Fuzhou, China, spent a large part of his childhood in Australia before relocating to Vancouver for his undergraduate studies. There, he majored in Dietetics and Theater, while also developing an intense passion for martial arts. After post-grad stints in Thailand and Japan to refine his Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu skills, Lin returned to his Canadian stomping grounds to pursue acting. In addition to landing a role on Netflix's Marco Polo series, he displayed his versatility as a multilingual actor by working in Hong Kong and mainland China in films like Monster Hunt and Lost in Hong Kong.
