Ray Park

MINI BIO

Date of Birth: August 23rd 1974

Scottish born English actor, stuntman and martial artist, best known for his portrayal of Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and for playing Toad in X-Men. He began working in movies as a stunt double for the movie Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, doing the stunts for both Robin Shou and James Remar. Park also did some cameos as monsters, including Baraka the Tarkata. All of these were non-speaking roles.

In 1999, Park appeared in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, as the Sith Lord Darth Maul. While the character had a few lines, Park's voice was dubbed over with that of actor Peter Serafinowicz.

In addition to this acting work, he has also been Christopher Walken's stunt double for the movie Sleepy Hollow. Park appeared in the scenes where Walken's character, the Headless Horseman, appears without his head.

Park had his first real speaking part in X-Men as Toad. In one scene of this film, after sending Storm (Halle Berry) down an elevator shaft, he picks up a length of pipe and swings it around in much the same way he swung his dual-bladed lightsaber as Darth Maul, a signature wushu movement.

In December 2007, Park was confirmed for the role of Snake-Eyes, one of the original contingent of G.I. Joe, for the upcoming movie of the same name, involving a variation of the international G.I. Joe force, which in the comics fought the minions of COBRA.
