Biography

Whereas some TV actors will toil away in obscurity for decades, Archie Kao has been fortunate enough to have had recurring parts on two of the most well-known shows of the 1990s and 2000s: "Power Rangers Lost Galaxy" (Fox, 1999-2000) and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000-15). A former athlete, Kao was well suited to play the Blue Ranger on the seventh season of the live-action kids' show, billed as "Lost Galaxy." But it was his role as the lab technician Archie Johnson on the long-running, and immensely popular, CBS crime procedural that would forever etch Kao into the annals of TV history. He may have started his career as a spandex-donning superhero, but, with his highly visible role on "CSI," Kao has broken barriers to become one of the most successful Asian-American actors on TV.
