With a father that owned and operated a video store, Hubert Tran was introduced to film early on his childhood. The ones who struck a deep chord within Hubert were the actors Tony Leung, Andy Lau and Leslie Cheung. It was not until Hubert was in his mid teens that he finally decided to pursue acting as a full time career.
His first opportunity came when he was presented with an idol contest held annually by a local Chinese radio station, Fairchild Radio. The contest was called Sunshine Boyz and Hubert eventually won the competition. Riding off that accomplishment, Hubert made the decision to move to Hong Kong in hopes of realizing his dream of starring in Hong Kong films. Shortly after landing, Hubert was introduced to the Cantopop singer Elanne Kong and was quickly cast as the love interest in her debut music video 大眼睛 (Literally translated, Big Eyes). Soon after, Hubert managed to get a speaking role in the film 單身部落 (Single Blog). Within that same year, Hubert auditioned for Mr. Hong Kong and was invited into TVBs prestigious Artiste Training program.
Armed with a taste of the entertainment industry, Hubert decided to return to Toronto and enroll into the Acting for Film and Television program at Humber College and graduated in 2011. Since then, Hubert has made a mark in North America with credits in director Guillermo Del Toros latest flick Still Seas shot in Toronto. In addition to the comic turned television series XIII starring Stuart Townsend and Aisha Tyler to name a few. As an actor who is passionate about his Asian-Canadian roots, he is also the lead actor in the webseries Millions. (www.millionstheseries.com) Follow him on Twitter @HubertTran.
