Daniel Dae Kim has captivated global audiences with his transformative performances across film, television and theater. He continues to evolve his body of work in powerful roles and compelling narratives as an actor, director and producer.
The prolific actor is a longtime champion of increased diversity and Asian American representation in Hollywood, and has served as an important voice throughout the recent surge of violence towards people of Asian descent. His work as an advocate has been documented in the New York Times, Washington Post, , CNN, MSNBC, ABC News Nightline and a ground-breaking five-part PBS documentary.
Perhaps best known for his roles on LOST and Hawaii Five-O, some of his recent work as an actor include the lead in National Geographic’s anthology series, The Hot Zone: Anthrax, the Disney film, Raya and the Last Dragon, and the feature film, Stowaway, with Toni Collette and Anna Kendrick.
In 2013, Kim forged a new path in his career by creating his own production company, 3AD. With a first look deal with Amazon Studios, 3AD strives to feature those traditionally underrepresented in front of, and behind the camera. 3AD has had five successful seasons producing the ABC hit The Good Doctor, which Kim adapted from a Korean format about a doctor with autism and where he currently serves as Executive Producer.
He can next be seen in the upcoming live action remake of Avatar: The Last Airbender for Netflix.
