Peter Shinkoda: 'Da Man' Feature!

Peter Shinkoda bites on a piece of string in this pic from Da Man‘s April/May 2011 issue.

Here’s what the Canadian actor, who appears opposite Noah Wyle in the new TV show Falling Skies, had to share with the mag:

On choosing Hollywood after studying engineering at UCLA: “When I was at university studying, I was fooling myself. In my heart, I wished only to have a career in the movie industry – in any capacity – acting being the first choice.”

On his acting aspirations: “I’d like to think that by the end of my career the perception of Asian men will have changed somewhat for the better.”

On his guilty pleasures: “I am a fan of that Justin Bieber kid.”

On his proudest achievement so far: “Being cast as a lead in a [Steven] Spielberg show proved to my family and close friends that I wasn’t deranged all these years. They were concerned for me.”
