Kent was born and raised in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. He had a comfortable yet at times troubled childhood growing up in the suburbs of North Vancouver where he showed no propensity for a career in the entertainment industry.

After graduating university with a degree in Psychology, Kent changed his path and started his career as an actor. It wasn’t long before he booked a number of roles while living in Vancouver. Most notable include his role of Jack in the indie feature film John Apple Jack. The film went on to grace the screens of numerous film festivals all over the world. It was however at the California Independent Film Festival (CAIFF) where Kent was nominated alongside previous Oscar winner Richard Dreyfus for a best actor award in a lead role for his portrayal of Jack.

Another notable role includes the role of Russell in the Canadian TV show The Switch.

In 2015 Kent moved to China to further pursue his career as an actor and it is through his journey in China where he became an international star. In 2016 Kent played the role of Adam in the Pakistani feature film Chalay Thay Saath. As the male lead of the film, Kent became the first ethnically Chinese actor to play a lead role in Pakistani film history. The film was touted as the most anticipated Pakistani film in recent years and Kent’s involvement was an undeniable contribution. The film went on to beat audience expectations and Kent’s strong performance in the role was a common theme throughout many film-critics’ reviews.

Kent has now worked in countries all over the world, including Chile, New Zealand, Pakistan, Thailand, China and of course Canada.

Throughout the years, Kent has also involved himself behind the camera as a writer, editor, director, and producer. Despite his love and passion for acting, Kent also has a deep passion for film making as a whole. He plans to one day use his experiences as an actor to write and direct his own feature films.
