Who is John Cho’s wife? Kerri Higuchi Wiki Biography

Kerri Higuchi was born in South Korea, but hasn’t shared her exact place and date of birth with the public – she now holds both South Korean and American nationality, and is an actress and a writer, but became more known and popular after marrying John Cho, a famous actor.

Education and childhood

There isn’t much known about Kerri’s early life, as she has decided to keep these matters to herself – it is believed that she moved to the US with her family as soon as she finished elementary school. She hasn’t talked about any siblings either which is why she is believed to be an only child. Kerri began watching movies and TV series at the age of five – her parents would watch such programs every night and Kerri, being bored, would join them.

She decided to become an actress one day, and focused her entire life on making her way into the film industry – she matriculated from a local high school in the US, then chose not to enroll at college but to rather focus on her acting career.

Career of an actress

Kerri’s acting career was launched in 1995 but she played only minor roles in a couple of films and TV series, before appearing in the “Enough” film shot in 2002. The movie was closely based on the “Black and Blue” book by Anna Quindlen which was a bestseller, and helped Kerri become recognized in the film industry – the movie itself scored a ordinary grade on the IMDb rating website (5.7/10) but both Kerri and Jennifer Lopez who played the lead role were praised for their performances.

It took her three years to get her next role, in the “Grey’s Anatomy” medical drama TV series – it was a side role and Kerri appeared in a couple of episodes. Her next appearance was in the “Sorority Boys” movie, and after its shooting was finished, Kerri decided to test her skills in directing and worked on her own movie “Mr. Isaac” of which she was also the star. Kerri was next cast in the “Parks and Recreation” TV series, and then appeared in the “Flashforward” series in 2009. In 2010, she acted in the “More Things Change” movie, and then decided to focus on her children and her family rather than on acting, so that was her last role.

Marriage with John Cho

Both John and Kerri are secretive when it comes to their love life, which is something normal for the South Korean people.

Kerri Higuchi and John Cho

The two met at an event organized for actors – they were invited by a mutual friend who believed they would at least become friends, as they were both from South Korea. While they started off only as friends, they began dating a month later, and exchanged their wedding vows in 2006. Their son Kage Cho was born in May 2008, and their daughter whose name is not known was born in February 2013.

The family is apparently leading a happy life together in the US, and there are no controversies nor rumors surrounding their marriage – they can often be seen attending red carpet events together. Kerri hasn’t talked about any other man she might have been with before John Cho, and this is a first marriage for both of them.

He became famous after he won the role of Harold Lee in the “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” stoner film shot in 2004, and then played the same role in the “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay’ in 2008.

Praised for his performance in the movies, he was cast to play Harold Lee again in the “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas” movie shot in 2011.
