Biography and career Edit
Fernando Chien was born in Taipei, Taiwan under the name Chien Fu-Nan. When he moved to Canada, he adopted the name of Fernando.
After moving to Canada, Chien developed an interest in acting, and performed in musical theater productions in college. Although he had practiced Tae Kwon Do and Karate when he was 6 years old, it wasn't until his 20s that he started practicing martial arts more seriously, studying Hung-Gar Kung Fu in Montreal, Quebec.
In 2002, Chien moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film and TV. He was also introduced to Wushu, and then Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai. Chien studied under Gokor Chivichyan and Sensei Gene LeBell at the Hayastan MMA Academy. He currently practices at the Werdum Combat Team under Master Fabricio Werdum and Andrew Hagar.
After moving to Los Angeles, Chien moved between acting and stunt performing. He became part of the action team Reel Kick, which features some of the most sought after stunt performers. Chien also studied acting at Michael Beach's Actors Gym and Lee Strasberg Studio, among others.
During his career, Chien has worked in films like Crank, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Red Dawn (with Kenneth Choi), Fast Five (with Joaquim de Almeida and Michael Irby), and Iron Man 3 (with James Badge Dale). He has also worked on TV shows like NCIS: Los Angeles (with Tzi Ma and Elaine Kao), The Guild, and Star Trek: Enterprise (with John Billingsley and Connor Trinneer).
