Eugene first wanted to get involved in the arts when he saw a MACBETH production where one of Macbeth’s guards was an Asian American male actor. He had no lines.
“I could do that,” Eugene thought.
He has since appeared as recurring characters on shows like VEEP(HBO), JANETHEVIRGIN(CW), REVENGE(ABC), CRIMINALMINDS(CBS). To this day, people are more excited that his first TV appearances were on READING RAINBOW(PBS). “Did you meet Levar!?!” they ask.
Also a writer and playwright, Eugene interned for the NYTimes, winning Dartmouth College’s Eleanor Frost Playwrighting Award. His plays have been seen in NY, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Texas.
First heard about INTERPRETATIONS when Philip Chung challenged the 2016 C3 Creative Content audience to create on our own terms. INTERPRETATIONS2.0 provided the opportunity to work with a Chinese-American lead actress, a Hapa DP, a Latino&African American married team on effects/editing, and the cutest Korean-Latino 2 year old – a diverse range of talents melding together a story that marriages sci-fi CGI effects with surburban drama.
Every single person involved on this film I’ve worked with before, and I’m super grateful for a chance to deepen relationships with my network/village of talented friends.
