Ken grew up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan before his family moved to Midwood, Brooklyn. He attended high school in Old Bridge, New Jersey, and after matriculating, he attended New York University (NYU) as a University Scholar, and would build his interest in acting there. After graduating, he joined the HB Studio and would find work in various black box theaters – small sometimes unofficial venues.

One of Leung’s first notable opportunities was in Brett Ratner’s “Rush Hour”, in which he played the villain’s henchmen in the buddy action comedy film starred Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

Leung’s skills were noticed by the director, and soon more opportunities would open for him. His net worth started to increase significantly as he was cast in “The Family Man”, “Red Dragon”, and “X-Men: The Last Stand”, and for Edward Norton’s directorial debut entitled “Keeping the Faith”, he cast Leung in one of the roles, also starring Edward Norton, Ben Stiller and Jenna Elfman.

Leung received a lot of acclaim for his performance and was recommended by Norton for other projects. Leung also performed in various television movies and independent projects, but continued to work with Brett Ratner in other film projects and would then work with Spike Lee for two films.

In 1998, Ken joined the play “Corpus Christi” in which he played James the Less and God. In 2002 he made his Broadway debut in “Thoroughly Modern Millie”. He continued to work starring in the independent film “Shanghai Kiss” in 2007, alongside Hayden Panettiere, earning a Special Mention at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, and the film also won the Feature Film Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival. During the same year, he also made a guest appearance in the final season of “The Sopranos” before joining the cast of “Lost” as Miles Straume, playing the character from the fourth season in 2008 up to the final season in 2010. All of these opportunities continued to build his net worth.

Quotes

  • I did this thing for HBO called ‘Strip Search’ with Sidney Lumet, who was one of the best directors I’ve ever worked with. We actually had a rehearsal period before we shot, which is unusual.
  • You ask politicians a question, and they have an answer. It’s almost like the more articulate the answer, the more something feels wrong because that question takes thought.
  • My face frowns by default, so when I’m most calm is when I appear the least approachable.
  • If I’m in a room full of intense people, I’m pretty normal. If I’m in a room full of people who aren’t, maybe I’m intense.
  • If I’m in a room full of intense people, I’m pretty normal. If I’m in a room full of people who aren’t, maybe I’m intense. I don’t know, I don’t think of it that way.
  • I have an awareness of a spiritual realm, and I see signs that I feel speak to me – I don’t know if that falls into superstition.
  • I haven’t been in a position to have the luxury to pick roles for most of my career, so I’m not practiced in that. Usually, when you want to be an actor, you take whatever comes along. If there’s an audition, you go for it. If you get the job, you do it – just to get experience, to act, to meet people.
