Rising Star Chase Tang Gives Back
Alma Mater with Scholarship Endowment at the University of Guelph
As part of his humanitarian endeavors, and also to give back to the place that influenced his life’s journey, Chase Tang has decided to give two scholarship endowments to the University of Guelph, which he has dedicated to the memory of his mother, Shu Wei Chan. These endowments will go a long way in helping many young people get through university and achieve something great in their lives.
As someone who received an entrance scholarship to get into the University of Guelph, Tang realizes the importance of a good institution and education, which not only helps one get a well-paying job, but also guides their life’s journey to a great extent. Tang’s generous contributions for the University of Guelph will ease the burden and lessen the struggle of many young people, so that they don’t have to go through toils and tribulations like he did.
Finally, Chase Tang has gotten his big break, as he is casted in Netflix original series, Jupiter’s Legacy, a superhero TV series that is based around the eponymous superhero comic series by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely. Set to release in 2021, the series will revolve around the descendants of the world’s first superheroes, who struggle to live up to their ancestors’ legacy.
Chase will be seen playing the role of Baryon, a Supervillain of Asian descent whose only task will be to make life difficult for the superheroes. He is over the moon about landing this role, which he considers to be life-changing and one of the biggest opportunities of his life so far. Needless to say, a phenomenal role on a Netflix series will certainly put Chase Tang on the map and propel him towards even bigger projects and roles.
Although the show hasn’t premiered on Netflix as yet, Chase has already begun getting entertainment and endorsement opportunities from everywhere, which means that we will be seeing more of him in different films, TV shows, advertisements, campaigns, and much more. He is delighted to get a landmark role in a major series, as it paves the way for more people of Asian descent to work hard and achieve great success in film and television. He is also listed among the Top 10 rising Asian actors in Hollywood by the Internet Movie Database.
His casting in Jupiter’s Legacy also brought about a campaign by fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, who want him to play the role of Namor, a submariner who hasn’t been seen in any of the MCU movies till now. Many social media pages have been created by fans for this very purpose, and he is pleasantly surprised at all of the support he is getting. According to him, he has nothing on his resume to make him eligible for the resounding support.
Apart from his acting career, Chase Tang supports many humanitarian causes and actively participates in activism. He is a vocal proponent of mental health awareness, and claims to have struggled with his mental well-being during his years as a student and in the corporate world. He talked on mental health at The Asian Mental Health Collective, and was also part of the “World Is In Our Hands” campaign by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) for climate change awareness. This campaign also featured notable actors Antonio Banderas, Joaquin Phoenix, Rosario Dawson, and many more.
The University of Guelph is grateful to Chase Tang for his benevolent and generous contributions, and wishes him all the best for his future endeavors. This scholarship endowment will greatly boost the university’s endowment fund, and help ease the financial burdens of more and more students. We encourage more of our alumni, and distinguished residents of the city of Guelph, to come forward and help us produce talented and successful graduates.
