Leonardo Nam

Leonardo Nam is an Argentine-Australian actor. He was born on November 5, 1979 in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Korean immigrant parents. Nam's family moved to Sydney, Australia when he was six, and he attended Sydney Technical School. He graduated from the University of New South Wales at age 19 with a bachelor's degree in architecture. Soon, he moved to New York City and began studying acting with teachers such as Austin Pendleton and HB Studio's William Carden. Nam was working at Lotus Bar in the city's Meatpacking District before he got his start in Hollywood, which came about with his film debut in the mockumentary Hacks (2002). His truly breakout role, however, was as Roy in the teen comedy heist movie The Perfect Score (2004). The next year, Nam played Brian McBrian in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005), a role he would reprise in a much more expanded form in the sequel, released in 2008. In 2006, Nam played Morimoto in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, one of his more widely recognized characters. He landed a role in the romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You (2009), and made his television debut on an episode of Bones (Fox, 2009). Nam had a recurring role on the short-lived Betas (Amazon Prime Video, 2013-2014), one of the online retail giant's first forays into original programming. His next major role, however, was Nam's biggest to date. As part of the critically praised ensemble of Westworld (HBO, 2016-2020), he was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series for his role as Felix Lutz. Nam followed up his role on one critically acclaimed science fiction series to join the main cast of Altered Carbon (Netflix, 2018), which received favorable critical anticipation ahead of its premiere. Nam also plays cheerful and free-spirited Dave in romantic comedy series Maggie (Hulu, 2022).
