Gooooood Morning my loves! And Happy Monday to ya! Wondering why I seem so jolly today, its because the weather in Jersey right now is beautiful and it’s time for yet another #CelebrityCrush Monday or as we’ve renamed it, #BaeDay! Today’s bae is a British actor who you may have seen in “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” or “Pirates of the Carribbean: At World’s End”, but these days, you can catch him starring on “Iron Fist”. That’s right loves, Lewis Tan is our #CelebrityCrush for today!
Lewis Tan is nothing short of a multicultural gawd! Tan was born in England but was raised primarily in Los Angeles, California. He is also noted as having lived in Thailand, France, Spain and Australia. His father Phillip is a martial artist, actor and stunt coordinator. While we may know Lewis Tan for his acting credits, he also has modeling under his belt – having modeled for brands such as Puma, Dior, GNC and Levis. For many years, Tan was also the face of Nivea.
Iron Fist is the latest Marvel-backed show to join the realm of Netflix. Set in the Marvel universe, the show stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand who’s superhero alter is Iron Fist, Rosario Dawson and of course, our new bae Lewis Tan. Tan plays the role of Zhou Cheng, a servant of Chi-Lin who is tasked with protecting Madame Gao’s heroine factory in Anzhou, China. And as amazing as this role is for Tan, we can’t help but wonder how GREAT it would’ve been if he had of won the role of Danny Rand (Iron Fist).
Lewis Tan, we absolutely LOVE your body of work and we’re hopping they bump up your role in Iron Fist from recurring to principle cast! You sir, are our new bae!
