Chase Tang, a proud Haligonian who spent his early years in Bedford, has a very busy year ahead of him.
Tang is featured in a UN-baked campaign to educate people about the real threat climate change poses to our way of life. The campaign has attracted many high profile actors and Hollywood-types. Joaquin Phoenix, who recently played Arthur Fleck in the 2019 blockbuster hit “Joker”, is also lending his stardom to the campaign.
On top of this, Tang is playing a starring role in a highly anticipated Netflix series “Jupiter’s Legacy”, which is set to be released this year. Tang is filling the role of Baryon, a supervillain based on the eponymous character in the comic book on which the series is made.
Netflix has been great as a platform for actors to launch their careers. Katherine Langford and Claire Foy come to mind. Tang, who left a career in corporate Canada to pursue his passion for action, it hoping that his new role will launch him into the A-list.
Halifax has produced a tremendous amount of acting talent is recent years. Ellen Page took Hollywood by storm and is starring in several new films in coming years. It’s tremendous great to see our province becoming a hub for the arts.
