Randy is a Filipino actor; he lives in LA via SF. After his grand father was murdered by his cousin for political reasons, his family came to the US to find a better life. His story of what it means to him to be American starts at being a first generation Filipino born in the US. Even if his family is extremely important to him and to the basics of his identity, Randy moved from San Francisco and to LA to extricate himself from the familiar and into a profession that has opened his mind and changed his idea of what it means to be American. There, he experienced racism and limited opportunities but, as he embodied different characters, he experienced a very large breadth of identities which gave him compassion for people he does not understand.
