Its Mortal Kombat time here in Australia and thankfully for us the film was shot here so that means we get a lot more access to talent & filmmakers then we would normally do! We were very lucky to spend a short time chatting to Josh Lawson who plays Kano
JOSH LAWSON (Kano) is an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter, a director, producer, and actor who has portrayed a hardened criminal, a delusional patient of a psychiatrist, and a Harvard graduate who specializes in numerical analysis, bringing captivating characters and compelling projects to life on screen for over a decade, solidifying himself as one to watch as not only an actor, but as a filmmaker.
Lawson was born and raised in Brisbane and attended St. Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace. He graduated from the National Institute of Dramatic Art and studied in Los Angeles at The Second City, The Groundlings, ACME Comedy Theatre and I.O. West. While working in film and television keeps Lawson busy, he recently took on the title of poet, publishing his first book of poetry, entitled Struggling Heartist (March 2020). Lawson published his debut children’s book, Shoo Grumpers Shoo!, in 2018, and will release The InterNOT later this year.
Most recently he was on the big screen in the indie feature “Long Story Short.” The film, which Lawson penned, directed, and stars in, tells the story of a man named Teddy who wakes up the morning after his wedding to discover that every few minutes he’s jumping forward to the next year of his life.
