Terry Chen is a Canadian actor best known for his breakout role as real-life Rolling Stone editor Ben Fong-Torres in the 2000 Cameron Crowe film Almost Famous; and for his starring role as 2nd Lt. Dr. Bobby Trang in the medical drama television series Combat Hospital, in 2011.

From a starring role opposite Billy Zane and Academy Award-nominee Dennis Hopper in Mem-o-re, to working with Samuel L. Jackson in Snakes on a Plane, the Alberta-born actor has amassed numerous film and television projects.

After wrapping up his supporting lead role opposite Jessica Biel in the The A-Team, Chen has guest starred on various television series such as V and Psych, as well as pilots Befriend & Betray, and Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.

He can also be seen in two Syfy projects: in Riverworld, he plays a Second World War Chinese American fighter pilot caught in a surreal world of purgatory; and in Sanctuary, he plays an evil scientist battling wits with an elite team of monster hunters.

Chen was also reunited with director Ernie Barbarash to film the sci-fi action thriller Hardwired with Val Kilmer and Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr.

Barbarash first cast Chen opposite Jaime King (Sin City) in the horror feature They Wait in which Chen plays a man whose family is threatened by a haunting.

Another high-profile project in which Chen was seen as a devoted family man was War with Hong Kong action star Jet Li and Jason Statham.

It was Chen's work in the long-running, critically-acclaimed television series Da Vinci's Inquest which led the show's head writer and director Chris Haddock to cast Chen in his award-winning feature The Life, a film which showcases the poverty and drug abuse rampant in Vancouver's downtown east side.

Chen also had a recurring role in the Canadian science fiction series Continuum, in 2012.
