Chin Han began his 20-year career in theater, television and film as a teen actor in classics like Moliere's L'Ecole des femmes and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.
After a successful ad campaign as the face of Citibank in the early 90s in Asia, he went on to star in Singapore's first English language television series Masters of the Sea produced by ex-Lorimar exec Joanne Brough (Dallas, Falcon Crest).
A spin-off series Troubled Waters was to follow, which he also starred in.
In 1998 Chin Han made his US film debut in Blindness an Official Selection at the 2nd Hollywood Film Festival in a leading role opposite Vivian Wu (Peter Greenaway's The Pillow Book) and Joe Lando (Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman).
In 1999, he starred in the Singapore mini-series 'Alter Asians' which won the 2001 Asian Television Award for Best TV Movie of the Year.
As a director, he has helmed acclaimed Asian Premieres of plays like David Hare's The Blue Room and co-produced the official Musical adaptation of Ang Lee's The Wedding Banquet.
A pianist himself, Chin Han has also produced concerts for Tony Award winners Jason Robert Brown (The Last 5 Years), Cady Huffman (The Producers) and Lillias White (Disney's Hercules) in Asia.
In Los Angeles, he served as Associate Producer (credited as Chin Han Ng) on the 2006 Asian Excellence Awards which featured stars like Jackie Chan, Maggie Q, Quentin Tarantino and Danny Devito.
Returning to the big screen, his recent strong supporting performance in Thom Fitzgerald's (The Hanging Garden) 3 Needles with Lucy Liu, Sandra Oh, and Chloe Sevigny led a movie reviewer to note that for his 'small but important role, (Chin Han) delivers in spades' (I-S Magazine).
Chin Han currently spends his time between Europe and the US.
