Fernando Chien stars in "Warrior," opposite Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton. Not only does Chien play the role of the gym-rat Fenroy, but with Sam Hargrave and other talented action choreographers, he developed a new style of action choreography that was based in realistic techniques for the film. Chien previously starred in "Fast Five," opposite Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster, as Wilkes.

Born in Taipei City, actor and stunt performer Fernando Chien has followed a diverse road consequently landing him in Hollywood as a budding actor. At 17, Fernando moved to Montreal and attended McGill University where his interest in performance and film was sparked. While majoring in Evolutionary Biology, Fernando took film courses, attended circus school, studied martial arts, and worked as a personal trainer. In 2000, he landed a role in "The Art of War," starring Wesley Snipes.

In 2002, Fernando relocated in Los Angeles and began training at the Lee Strasberg Academy, then at the Howard Fine Acting Studio. When not studying acting, Fernando trained in Muay Thai, Judo and Jiu-jitsu out of the Hayastan Grappling Academy under Sensei Gene LeBell/Gokor Chivichyan and at the Werdum Combat Team. In 2004, Fernando met Sam Hargrave and created Reel Kick Films (an underground martial arts action team). In 2005, Fernando was cast as "Saul the Augment" in "Star Trek Enterprise." This launched his professional stunt/action career with titles such as "Crank," "Flags of Our Fathers," "Pirates of the Caribbean 3," "The Mummy 3," "Poseidon," "Crank," "Monk" and commercials for Diet Pepsi doubling Jackie Chan.

What set Fernando apart was his ability to act. He played action-actor roles in "24," "Bunraku," "Angel of Death," "Honor" and "Crossing Jordan," to name a few. In 2008, Fernando was cast in the web-series "The Guild" that allowed him to act and display his action skills. Since then, as an actor he has appeared in NBC's "My Own Worst Enemy" and "The Cape," CBS's "NCIS: Los Angeles," and The CW's "Melrose Place." He also played a recurring role on the hit web comedy series "The Guild."

2009 was his break-out year as an actor playing in the remake of "Red Dawn" as Lt. Yee and most recently as Wilkes in Universal's "Fast Five." His experience in MMA and action filmmaking was a perfect fit when "Warrior" came around.
