Who is Osric Chau? Born in Vancouver, Canada, Osric took his first acting class at the age of 8 and began training in martial arts when he was 13. He stared in the Canadian TV shows “Dragon Boys” and “Cold Squad” and landed his first role in ‘‘Kung Fu Killer’‘ opposite Darryl Hannah and David Carradine. We saw him in Roland Emmerich’s “2012″, RZA’s ”The Man With the Iron Fists” and most recently he is Kevin Tran in CW’s fan favorite series ‘‘Supernatural”.
What does your first name mean and does it represent you?
Osric is an Old English name and it means something to the effect of “Divine Ruler.” I hated my name growing up but once I found out of its meaning I learned to not only love it but tried my best to live up to it and be as good of a role model as I could be to students younger than me. I suppose that still holds true nowadays. It’s a unique name and I haven’t yet met another Osric yet. It will happen one day and I’m not sure how I’ll react.
When and why did you decide to become an actor?
I took my first acting class when i was 9. But it wasn’t until I was 21 that I decided to take it seriously. At that point I knew that I needed to do something creative and I just could not handle a 9 to 5 job. I was pursuing stunt work at the time and then I started getting acting jobs and discovered I was not bad at it and enjoyed it a lot. I’ve been doing it ever since.
What is the most challenging aspect for any acting job?
Getting the job. Auditioning for every role, the constant rejection and just making all the pieces fit together and convincing a hundred people that you are the only person in the world that could play that character, that’s the challenge. Once you get the job you already know you can do it. Most of the excitement happens before you’re ever on set.
With which actor/actress would you like to work?
Too many to count. Off the top of my head would be Matt Damon, big fan of his work and his work ethic.
What are you next movie projects?
Over the last two years or so I’ve been developing scripts with a writer friend of mine. I would love to finally make the push and make it a real thing. Part of the job is always waiting for projects, for auditions, callbacks and I just want to go out and do my own thing. I’m so excited to do it!
What advice would you give to anyone who would like to pursue an acting career?
Treat it like any other career. You would have to go to school for it, work your way up and maybe after a couple of years you get promoted a few times. That being said, a lot of people starting later in life have to start from scratch, so you might have to put in 10 years of dedicated time, with no pay just to achieve a semblance of success. Some people get there earlier, others don’t, most lose motivation and do it every now and then and eventually lose their way and say it’s impossible. If you want it bad enough you’ll find a way, but before you do, make sure it’s what you want to do because there will be a lot of sacrifices you’ll be needing to make.
Are you a comics fan? If yes,who is your favorite superhero/ character?
I love the Hulk. He’s my favourite. When I was a child the only way I knew how to deal with my issues was violence and anger. I really connected with the Hulk through that. As I grow older, I’m more attuned to Bruce Banner and the Hulk hasn’t been out in years. I just love the conflict between those two.
Does cosplay help you be a better actor or is it the other way around?
Cosplay helps me enjoy the conventions as a fan and a guest. I used to go to conventions as an attendee and dressed up, so when I started getting invited as a guest, I just didn’t want to change who I was just because I started working on TV shows.
Would you say that your martial arts training makes you a more focused person?
Martial arts is a big part of who I am. It has shaped the type of person I am and how I deal with obstacles and hardships. Training under such extreme conditions has helped put a lot under perspective and I always try my best to remember to be grateful for everything I’ve been given and to try to give back whenever I can.

Ah, glorios septembrie, bine ai revenit impreuna cu ploi si vreme rece, insa macar vii si cu seriale, fie ele noi, fie ele vechi. Iar unul dintre serialele pe care le-am asteptat cu nerabdare sa inceapa este Gotham al carui prim episod a debutat aseara. Stai, Gotham? Asta nu are legatura cu… tipu cu lilieci… Batman! Ba da, despre acel Gotham vorbim, insa serialul nu ne povesteste ceea ce a facut deja trilogia lui Nolan, din contra, ne arata de unde a inceput totul.
Episodul debuteaza cu o versiune tanara a Selinei Kyle, a.k.a. The Catwoman, care in timpul unui raid prin oras in cautare de lapte asista la o crima. Moartea sotilor Wayne. Pe scurt, motivul pentru care Bruce devine Batman. Cei doi detectivi trimisi sa investigheze cele intamplate sunt detectivii Harvey Bullock si James Gordon. Afland de identitatea celor doua victime, Gordon ii promite tanarului Bruce ca il va prinde pe faptas.
Dupa ce investigheaza mai multi suspecti fara succes, Edward Nygma, a.k.a. The Riddler ii anunta pe cei doi detectivi ca pistolul folosit de catre criminal nu este unul ce nu poate fi gasit in baza de date. Insa Bullock avea cateva legaturi in lumea criminala, de la care afla ca un anume Mario Pepper scotea la vanzare un colier asemanator cu cel furat in noaptea crimei de la Martha Wayne.
Chiar daca era nevinovat, Pepper incearca sa fuga, insa este impuscat mortal de Bullock. Dupa ce afla adevarul despre Mario, Gordon este decis sa ii ceara socoteala unuia dintre sefii mafiei locale, Fish Money, fara succes, trezindu-se intr-o macelarie. Cand Bullock incearca sa il scape de la o moarte dureroasa, este si el legat alaturi de partenerul sau. Insa in scena apar Carmine Falcone, seful crimei organizate din Gotham care ii salveaza pe cei doi. Gordon afla de la acesta ca gangsterul a fost un bun prieten al tatalui sau dar realizeaza si influenta pe care o are asupra primarului si al politiei.
Stiind ca cel care a raspandit zvonul inscenarii implicarii lui Pepper in crima este Oswald Cobblepot, a.k.a. The Penguin, Bullock ii spune lui Gordon ca spre binele lui l-ar omora, pentru a nu se raspandi zvonul nevinovatiei lui Mario. Gordon decide sa insceneze moartea lui Cobblepot, aruncandu-l in apa in acelasi moment cand apasa pe tragaci.
Episodul se incheie cu Gordon in vizita la conacul familiei Wayne, spunandu-i lui Bruce ca adevaratul criminal este inca in libertate si ca nu si-a pastrat promisiunea facuta in noaptea aceea. Bruce ii dezvaluie lui Gordon ca este fericit ca faptasul este inca in viata, dorind sa il vada din nou.
Povestea pare una foarte interesanta, Gothamului ii este dat un aer intunecat, perfect as putea spune care aduce putin aminte a „Batman Begins”; numarul de personaje cunoscute de catre fani pentru un pilot este considerabil. Sunt introdusi 4 raufacatori celebrii cu cateva indicii spre un al 5-lea. Destul de multi. Alfred are un accent irlandez, un lucru care nu mi-a placut asa de mult. Primul episod ne-a oferit o gramada de indicii si referinte asupra unversului DC Comics si asupra celor ce vor urma. Mai jos sunt referintele pe care le-am observat:
Ok, aici se incheie review-ul meu. „Gotham” este un serial promitator care arata genial inca din primul episod, nu ca „The Flash” si astept cu nerabdare sa vad ceea ce va urma si cum vor evolua personajele, in special Bruce si Gordon.[ TV Review] Gotham – 1×01 Distributie: Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Zabryna Guevara You cannot have organized crime without law and order.
