With his smouldering looks, Sen was a model on the Gold Coast for five years before he joined the books of Agency 888, and they encouraged him to consider acting as a career.
“When I joined 888, I received a call from Jaiden within the first week. He wanted to put me into the tv series Reef Break as a stand-in and as a double. While they continued shooting I had work on and off, at least once a week. It was pretty consistent.”
After Reef Break, Sen was cast in the blockbuster Godzilla vs. Kong, and also in Australian horror comedy, Bloody Hell.
Sen was born in Xi’an, Shaanxi, China, famous for its terracotta warrior historical site. His parents moved to Shenzhen, in Guangdong Province, a burgeoning metropolis of nearly 20 million people, north of Hong Kong, before he came to Australia in 2010.
“I came right before Christmas,” Sen recalled. He now lives in Brisbane.
“I also work at a creative agency in Brisbane, planning marketing strategies for start-up businesses. They are flexible, so when I have a film coming up, I can tell them I need to be away, and that’s pretty helpful.”
Sen likes the outdoors: rock-climbing, hiking and sports, basketball in particular. Even his 888 acting courses are like a mental work-out.
“I’m taking both Level 1 and Level 2 acting classes, which are really different from what I expected. There is a lot of physical movement. I work full-time and take classes three times a week. It helps release my stress, empty my mind and discover myself. I learn acting skills and network with new people. Jane (Level 1) and Crystal (Level 2) are great teachers. The vibe is good for the whole class, how we interact with each other. It feels like a big family and I really appreciate this kind of opportunity.”
