Hayden Szeto

Date of Birth: September 11, 1985

Although Canadian actor Hayden Szeto has been in the entertainment business for many years, he only began breaking into mainstream Hollywood in 2016, earning roles in the horror mystery The Unbidden and the ensemble dramedy The Edge of Seventeen .

Born Hayden Chun Hay Szeto in Vancouver, British Columbia, Hayden comes from a long line of artists; he is the son of a painter, Nigel Szeto, and the grandson of the famous Chinese painter, Kei Szeto.

Hayden has said he always wanted to be an actor because he has a "primal need to tell stories." He spent years honing his craft, having studied at the New York Film Academy and the Ivana Chubbuck Studio in Los Angeles. Following numerous jobs in commercials for products like Adidas, Nike, Coca Cola, and Microsoft, Hayden earned his first on-screen role in the sci-fi television movie Man of Light in 2011. He then made his feature film debut in the action comedy Secret Asian Man - Rise of the Zodiac! in 2012.

Over the next couple of years, Hayden appeared in numerous short films, including Free Love (2012) and The Wrong Guys (2013), and TV series, including Chop Shop and Too Cool For School.

In 2016, while Hayden continued working in shorts, he also began earning parts in feature films, first in the horror flick Fortune Cookie, followed by the horror mystery drama The Unbidden. He then played Hailee Steinfeld's love interest in the coming-of-age dramedy The Edge of Seventeen (2016). More recently, he starred alongside Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey in Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018).
