Kat Zheng is a second-generation Asian American actor originally from Londonderry, New Hampshire. She is the daughter of Korean parents who were born and raised in Yanbian, China before immigrating to the United States. After becoming a registered nurse and obtaining a doctorate from Columbia University, she spent a year working as a mental health researcher before revisiting her childhood dream of pursuing acting, though her passion for mental health advocacy continues to resonate through her love of storytelling. She has since obtained professional training in acting and improv while accumulating work in commercials, industrials, web series, and short films.
She is also passionate about contributing to positive representation of Asian Americans in the media and is thrilled to be represented by Gray Talent Group.
