Howard Cai made his film debut in The Asylum’s “Celebrity Sex Tape”. Before that he dabbled a bit in singing and modeling but his true passion is acting. He’s very generous and kind and wants all his family and friends to be proud of him. He commits a lot of time and effort to accomplish his goals. A far cry from his character Kwan in “Celebrity Sex Tape”.
You’ve mostly been in TV shows, was “Celebrity Sex Tape” your first movie and how was it compared to TV?
HOWARD: Yes! Celebrity Sex Tape was my first featured film that I am one of the leads. It was so much different from TV because TV is shot in a much faster pace. Most stuff I’ve done were co-starring and featured roles. Personally, these roles were just whatever. This movie made my dream came true. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.
How are things going with your modeling and music? Do you have any websites that we can hear your music or see pictures?
HOWARD: I think I now truly consider myself as an actor. I feel offended when people call me a model! LOL, JK. I first got into modeling because I attended a modeling school few years ago. It sucks that I don’t have the height to do runway. Therefore, acting is what I need to do. As for music, I sang on some talent shows in High school and college, and I enjoyed performing in front of people. I always have the passion for music, but it is not what I’m trying to pursue at this moment (unless someone offers me a recording contract like right now LOL).
What made you want to pursue acting and modeling full time?
HOWARD: This is my dream! Ever since I was little, I admired all these big stars on movies and TV shows. I remembered that one day, I told myself that I will be one of them. I love being in the spotlight and being talked about. I guess I am an attention whore LOL. I really want to be remembered and recognized and make people around me and myself proud of what I do. I always want to be someone who is influential and able to give back to the community. I really enjoy acting because I can have a lot fun by playing different characters and I can make other people have fun by watching me act.
Do you have family in China and get back to visit there? Any non-tourist tips?
HOWARD: I have tons of relatives in China, I love going to China! It is so so so so much different now from ten years ago when I left there! It is so metro and modern, and they have like everything. I am not sure what exactly are non-tourist tips. I can only tell you go there and find out yourself, with lots American dollars, of course, they love western foreigners.
What are you currently working on?
HOWARD: I am currently working on advancing my career to the next level! I take acting classes every week and just going out to a lot auditions. I’m also talking to producers and casting directors about the possibility of being part of their new upcoming projects. My next goal is to book something exciting and fun for major TV networks or studios. I also hope, if the right opportunity comes, to get into the Chinese show biz market, going back to my root, ha!
