TV Series Hub Interviews Kai!

Kai recently spoke to TV Series Hub about his role on Motherland: Fort Salem and his career. You can read the full article below under the “Read More” tab.

Kai Bradbury is an up and coming actor who can be seen in the new Freeform series “Motherland: Fort Salem” (March 18, 2020). He portrays ‘Gerrit,’ a male witch who comes to Fort Salem and strikes up a whirlwind relationship with one of the lead witches (Jessica Sutton) in the hour-long drama series. The show reimagines history where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with a burgeoning U.S. government to fight for their country as powerful soldiers. “Motherland: Fort Salem” is also available for streaming on Hulu.

Kai kicked off his career in Amazon’s “The Man in the High Castle”, where he portrays a Kempeitai officer (Japanese police during WWII). He went on to play ‘Glenn Stevens,’ the college best friend of the Menendez brothers in Lifetime’s “Menendez: Blood Brothers” and also can be seen in TLC’s “Untold Stories of the ER.”

Then came Netflix’s “Altered Carbon” with Joel Kinnaman (“Suicide Squad”) where he plays ‘Tadao,’ a 300-year-old businessman inside of a younger man’s body.

Kai is also seen in The CW’s “Supernatural” as well as Amazon’s “The Boys” playing the little brother of Karen Fukuhara’s (“Suicide Squad”) character. He takes pride in being half Japanese and was honored to be a part of AMC’s “The Terror: Infamy” which follows the story of the Japanese-American internment during WWII with a supernatural horror twist on real-life events. Being able to work with Japanese actors from all over the world along with Japanese directors, designers, and camera operators, he portrays ‘Nick Okada,’ an internee in a prisoner-of-war camp in North Dakota. Throughout the show, he becomes the target of ‘Yamato-san’ (George Takei) when he suspects something is not quite right with ‘Nick.’ Most recently Kai starred in the CBC Gem Canada mini-series “Warigami” alongside iconic Canadian actor Hiro Kanagawa (Amazon’s “The Man in the High Castle”). The show aired stateside on The CW.

Kai Bradbury is the proud son of a Japanese mother and Scottish father, combined with the Venezuelan family as well, resulting in a real-life “Modern Family” upbringing. Kai (meaning Ocean in Japanese) grew up surrounded by the arts (painters, architects, jewelers, floral designers, you name it) so naturally dove into art classes, photography, and sculpting as a kid. He discovered acting at 14 in high school, where he was enrolled in a French immersion program. He has done the Vancouver and Edinburgh (Scotland) International Fringe Festivals and has been in over a dozen plays and musicals in Vancouver- including Rent, Oliver! and West Side Story. He attended Capilano University’s Musical Theater Program in Vancouver, BC. It was there where he met his acting agent, and the rest is history.

Outside of acting, Kai loves to paint and draw, culture and language, food and cooking, photography, singing, dancing, and wants to one day be in a musical on Broadway or at the Hollywood Bowl. He speaks Japanese, French, and English. Dedicated to anything he takes on, Kai has also speed skated competitively and took music and violin lessons for 10 years. He now plays the guitar and ukulele.
