East Asian British Stunt Actor Performs His Own Stunts In George Lucas Latest Franchise.

David Cheung stars in the brand new Andor Star Wars series, currently airing on Disney Plus. The Andor series is a prequel to the Star Wars spin-off film Rogue One and debuted to high ratings.

David Cheung plays West 2, a member of the Pre-Mor Enforcement or corporate tactical force (West Team), who is sent on a mission to Ferrix in Tac pods to track down Cassian Andor (Diego Luna). He acts alongside Alex Ferns and Kyle Soller in episodes 2 and 3 of Andor.

His talent has landed him roles acting alongside Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany and Taylor Lautner, with film credits including Batgirl, Gangs Of London 2, Tom Hardy's Havoc, Michael Bay's 6 Underground, Final Fantasy XV and Netflix show The Bubble.

London-based David was a student at the prestigious Identity School Of Acting, known for producing stars such as Letitia Wright, Malachi Kirby, Damson Idris and Melanie Liburd.

David Cheung is among an elite few hundred people in the world to be accepted as a member of the British Stunt Register.

 

 

Welcoming Disney's prioritisation of diversity, with an increased number of diverse actors in prominent roles on the platform, David says: "The industry has changed; it's encouraging that more movies and TV shows are giving ethnic minorities better parts rather than favouring stereotypical roles. Films nowadays offers better opportunities for a diverse cast to make it onto screen; I hope it continues to move such a positive direction. Seeing a Chinese Marvel character, 'Shangchi' - played by an East Asian actor Simiu Liu was amazing. It's given actors like myself the inspiration to keep on performing and never give up on our dreams".
