A native of Canada now based in the United States, Albert M. Chan is an actor and filmmaker of Chinese descent. Ironically, it was only when he was working towards his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at MIT that Albert began to explore the creative arts and discovered his true passion for telling stories that matter — stories about how the human heart changes.
After several years of persistent and conscientious effort, Albert's first acting break came in 2006 when he landed a role in Disney's live-action film version of the classic cartoon Underdog, (James Belushi, Amy Adams, Jason Lee). Since then, his film and TV roles have included 30 Rock (NBC), Law & Order SVU (NBC), Body of Proof (ABC), Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, The Makeover (ABC), Clear History (HBO), and Brotherhood (Showtime). He has been cast by directors such as Spike Lee, Greg Mottola, Henry Bromell, and Mark Waters to act opposite Helen Hunt, Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles, Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Justin Long, Larry David, Cybill Shepherd, and Mariska Hargitay.
