Show Notes

Actor Rich Ting stars as "Bolo" in Bruce Lee's Warrior on HBO Max. He was honored as Grand Marshall of the San Francisco Chinese New Year Festival and Parade for 2023.

Directed by Justin Lin of the Fast & Furious movie franchise, the Warrior television series was inspired by the writings and work of Bruce Lee and brought Rich's career full circle by connecting him to the childhood icon he idolized.

Rich joined Warrior castmates Andrew Koji, Dianne Doan, Olivia Cheng, Joe Taslim, Perry Young, Jason Tobin, Dustin Nguyen, Hoon Lee, Kieran Bew, Tom Weston-Jones, Dean Jagger, and Joanna Vanderham.

Other screen credits include Magnum P.I., The Old Man, Lone Survivor, The Man in the High Castle, Salt, Supergirl, and NCIS: Los Angeles, among many other appearances in popular films and tv series. He recently appeared at Carter Min in Partner Track on Netflix.

A fourth-generation Asian American of mixed descent born in Los Angeles, Rich has been a martial artist and multi-sport athlete from a young age. He played college football at Yale University and earned a dual JD/MBA degree. Coincidentally, Rich's character in Partner Track is also an Ivy League lawyer opposite the series lead, Arden Cho.

Rich was headed for a lucrative career in corporate law when his ambitions turned to Hollywood. Solid parental grounding, relentless work ethic, and a healthy dose of self-belief and fearlessness gave Rich the edge he needed to launch himself into Hollywood stardom.

We dive into how Rich turned his biggest hurdle into his most significant opportunity, staying gooey and embracing your fear of the unknown.

Among the life lessons that guide him, Rich shares his core values of accountability, responsibility, and being a good person — and what Bruce Lee once said that keeps Rich in perpetual motion.
