Shum’s Daniel “Blue” Kwan is sharp-witted, impatient, and brilliant. He is generous by nature but competitive to a fault, naturally gifted, and used to winning at everything. A family crisis interfered with his career plans and now he’s got a lot to prove.
The character description hints at a back story that would explain why Daniel is a little older than your typical medical resident.
Known for his roles in Fox’s Glee and Freeform’s Shadowhunters, Shum also starred in, produced and co-choreographed The LXD (Legion of Extraordinary Dancers), a Hulu dance series created by Jon M. Chu who also directed Shum in the hit movie Crazy Rich Asians.
Shum plays one of the leads in this year’s breakout indie hit Everything Everywhere All at Once. He also stars in and executive produces technological thriller Broadcast Signal Intrusion, which premiered at SXSW and had a domestic theatrical/VOD release in fall 2021. It is now available on-demand. Last year, Shum starred alongside Nina Dobrev and Jimmy O. Yang in Netflix’s hit holiday movie Love Hard.
Additionally, Shum has partnered with The Conscious Kid and in working with the organization’s Anti-Racist Children’s Book Education Fund initiative. He is repped by Paradigm, Triniti Management, Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson & Christopher, and imPRint.
