David Cheung stars in the brand new Andor Star Wars series, currently airing on Disney Plus. The Andor series is a prequel to the Star Wars spin-off film Rogue One and debuted to high ratings.

David Cheung plays West 2, a member of the Pre-Mor Enforcement or corporate tactical force (West Team), who is sent on a mission to Ferrix in Tac pods to track down Cassian Andor (Diego Luna). He acts alongside Alex Ferns and Kyle Soller in episodes 2 and 3 of Andor.

His talent has landed him roles acting alongside Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany and Taylor Lautner, with film credits including Batgirl, Gangs Of London 2, Tom Hardy’s Havoc, Michael Bay’s 6 Underground, Final Fantasy XV and Netflix show The Bubble.

London-based David was a student at the prestigious Identity School Of Acting, known for producing stars such as Letitia Wright, Malachi Kirby, Damson Idris and Melanie Liburd.

Performing his own stunts, he is a member of the British Stunt Register, qualifying in six disciplines, including rally racing, PADI diver master, SPA rock climbing instructor and a black belt in martial arts.

David Cheung is among an elite few hundred people in the world to be accepted as a member of the British Stunt Register.

Welcoming Disney’s prioritisation of diversity, with an increased number of diverse actors in prominent roles on the platform, David says: “The industry has changed; it’s encouraging that more movies and TV shows are giving ethnic minorities better parts rather than favouring stereotypical roles.

Films nowadays offer better opportunities for a diverse cast to make it onto screen; I hope it continues to move in such a positive direction. Seeing a Chinese Marvel character, ‘Shangchi’ – played by an East Asian actor Simiu Liu was amazing. It’s given actors like myself the inspiration to keep on performing and never give up on our dreams“.
