Brian Tee

Brian Tee was born in Okinawa, Japan, and moved to the United States at the age of two. Upon graduating from Wilson High School in the Los Angeles suburb of Hacienda Heights, Tee-at the urging of his parents-enrolled in Cal State Fullerton as a pre-law major. But always feeling a connection to the arts, he took the class Acting for Non-Majors, and it changed the course of his life. To his family's chagrin, he dropped out of Fullerton in pursuit of a school with a strong theater arts program. Tee subsequently entered the Dramatic Arts Acting program at the University of California, Berkeley.

He graduated from college a semester early and began his acting career in early 1999, appearing in student films and independents. He finally landed his first role in the NBC television series The Pretender, which led to more work on such popular television shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Monk and, more recently, Wanted and the new CBS series The Unit.

Tee most recently appeared in the comedy Fun with Dick and Jane. His film career was jumpstarted with a memorable role in We Were Soldiers, opposite Mel Gibson. He has also appeared in Austin Powers: Goldmember and Starship Troopers 2.
