He has been acting professionally for the last 20 years and he has been a part of some very important projects. Although he hasn’t always had the biggest roles, he is proof that even the most minor appearances can be impactful. He is most recognizable from his role in the TV series The Romeo Section, but he has also been in popular shows like Millions, The Flash, and Supernatural.

There was a time in King’s life where a career in the entertainment industry was completely unimaginable. When he went to college, his plan for the future was to become a religious studies professor. As we can see, life had other plans for King and he eventually changed his plans to focus on wrestling.
4. He Is A Doctor
There are some people who believe that once a person finds a certain path they should stick to it, but King Lau is a perfect example of how it’s okay to explore multiple options.

No matter how much success King has achieved over the years, one thing he could never forget are his loved ones. He comes from a close knit family and has maintained that closeness over the years. He has an especially tight bond with his siblings. Although it doesn’t appear that he has any children of his own, King is a very proud uncle.

He’s posted a few photos with a woman named Mazarine Moon and the two seemed to be an item. It’s been a couple of years since he shared a photo with her, but the fact that he hasn’t deleted the old ones could mean they’re still together.
