Donald is also set for the big screen in the feature film Fatal Visit slated for a 2018 release in Hong Kong and China
Actor Donald Heng is thrilled to have two upcoming roles that he is proud of on both the big and small screens. Donald treasures his experience playing the character of Deputy Larry Foon on the thrilling new series Ghost Wars, just released on Netflix in Canada and available on demand via SYFY and iTunes in the USA. Donald’s character, along with most of the town’s population, is wary of the intention of protagonist Roman Mercer (Avan Jogia). Deputy Larry takes a larger interest in antagonizing Roman after his mother dies in a paranormal accident, which he blames Roman for.
“Ghost Wars is a project that checked so many boxes for me. I wanted to be a police officer growing up and I finally got to play one while working with so many actors that I admire,” says Donald. “Working with Vincent D’Onofrio was like having a crash course in acting. He is the most warm, inviting, human being. He talked us through his process and gave us advice. I also have memories off- camera with Vincent. It was such a fulfilling education to watch him work.”
In the world of film, Donald recently completed his first feature film role alongside some of the biggest stars in Asia for the project Fatal Visit. Donald plays Ming in the feature film, slated for a mid/late 2018 release in Hong Kong and China with a limited release in Canada and the United States. Fatal Visit was extra challenging because his character had to speak Mandarin, Cantonese, and Taiwanese.
Fatal Visit follows Yanny (Charlene Choi) as she leaves Hong Kong to escape a love affair gone wrong. She goes to San Jose to visit Ling (Sammy Cheng), an old friend she hasn’t seen in years. It seems like Ling and her husband Tang (Dawei Tong) lead an ideal, carefree existence. But during the short span of five days, Yanny uncovers the truth hidden behind the facade as she discovers the unspeakable secrets that propel all three down a fatal path shattering their American dreams and imperiling their lives. Heng’s character Ming is a friend of Ling (Sammi Cheng), who introduces Ming to Yanny (Charlene Choi) in attempt to set them up after Yanny’s break up.
Donald has also had guest-starring roles on Season 4 of The Flash and CBS’ Ransom, and has appeared in a number of sci-fi TV series including Arrow, Supernatural,
Donald wanted to be an actor at a young age, but his goal was cemented when he started studying acting under Jeb Beach six years ago. He has also trained with Matthew Harrison, Andrew McIlroy, Ben Ratner and Robin Nielsen.
For the past five years Donald has contributed to his high school by performing on stage in their annual community Bare Bones Theatre. Outside of the realm of entertainment, Donald is a dog lover and knows his way around the kitchen.
Donald resides in Vancouver focusing on his acting career.
Donald is available for interviews upon request.
