Fil-Am JB Tadena recently was casted along with Asian actors Vanessa Yao and Annie Q. for CW’s series reboot of Kung Fu. Their characters, Mia, Juliette, and Sebastian will have large reoccurring roles in the series’ second season after season one’s crazy finale.
According to Deadline, Mia (Yao) is main character Nicky’s cousin who’s been supporting herself for years. It’ll be a family reunion this season, but it won’t be a pleasant one as Mia is a powerhouse. She’s a Guardian and Warrior with insane skills. While Juliette (Annie Q.) is the daughter and heir to businessman, Russell Tan. She’ll need to decide if she’s willing to follow the dark path her father has set or forge her own.
Sebastian (Tadena) is an eager chef new to Harmony Dumplings and ready to show off his skills in the kitchen. He catches Ryan’s eye, but are the feelings mutual? Speaking of relationships, Sebastian also fosters a new friendship with Mei-Li in the meantime. It looks like Tadena’s Sebastian is stirring up interesting relationships this season.
JB Tadena has hustled as an actor after leaving his job of seven years as a satellite engineer. “…while the hustle never really ends, that’s all it was for the first year and a half. I did research on how the business works, took classes, did networking, auditions, experienced rejections…” You can catch him featured on shows like Westworld, NCIS, SEAL Team, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Grey’s Anatomy, American Horror Story, and also in the Call of Duty: Vanguard lending his voice to one of the video game’s character.
