Biography

Kerri Higuchi is one of those celebrity actresses who like to keep a low profile about their life activities outside of their jobs. There is no known information about her age/actual or assumed date of birth, family background, educational accomplishments and life before fame. She has succeeded in no small way to withhold such information from the knowledge of the public and her reasons are not known.

Don’t be disappointed immediately though as lots of new celebrities are taking to this trend in recent times. It’s possible some of your favourite movie and film casts might be in this category. However, we can always extrapolate based on one or two facts that are available to us.

Going by the age of her husband – John Yohan Cho who was born on the 16th day of June 1972 and by how young she looks, it won’t be entirely wrong to assume Kerri Higuchi was not born earlier than the 1970’s. Her nationality is Korean-American and we know for certain that her ethnicity is Korean.

In 2002, Kerri appeared on our television screens alongside Jennifer Lopez in the drama thriller Enough as a ticket clerk. In the same year, we saw her again in the movie Sorority Boys as one of the actors though not the lead actress. Her other list of movie, film and television projects include Mr Isaac her own project which she directed and acted in, Parks and Recreation, the Grey’s Anatomy series and Flashforward of 2009. She was last seen in a movie in 2010 titled More Things Change.

Kerri appears to have taken a long break from acting, in fact, she is still very much absent from movie/filmmaking of any sort whether as an actress or a director. She hasn’t been involved in any known project and being someone who likes to keep a lot of the ongoings in her life outside the knowledge of me and you, we can only guess that perhaps she is giving something else in her life the attention that it so deserves. Probably family, life interest or another line of career. Whatever be the case, it will remain unknown till she makes it known or better still makes us privy to it.


She has not won any awards yet or been nominated for one. Her works have been loved by those who have seen them and there is no wrong in saying that Kerri Higuchi does have a talent for acting. Maybe in the future, her past works may be considered or if she does a new project worthy of commendation and recognition.

Family – Married, Husband

Though the details of her marriage like her exact wedding day and venue are not known, we do know for certain that Kerri Higuchi is married to John Yohan Cho. The South Korean couple dated for sometime before deciding it was best they tie the marriage knot between them in July 2006.

John Cho as earlier mentioned was born on 16th July 1972 into a Christian South-Korean family in Seoul, South Korea. His father was an officiating minister in the Church of Christ and was originally from North Korea. Cho’s family relocated to the U.S in 1978 and this afforded him the opportunity to be raised in Los Angeles after his family had moved around and briefly resided in other places. He attributes his life successes to growing up in the US.

In 1990, Cho graduated from Herbert Hoover High School in Glendale, California before proceeding to study at the University of California, Berkeley where he graduated in 1996 with a bachelors degree in English. He later taught English at Pacific Hills School in West Hollywood, California at the same time he worked at East West Players Theatre in LA where his acting career budded.

He is also a talented musician being the lead singer of Viva La Union (Left Zed), a Los Angeles garage rock band. The band has an album titled Chinese Baby.

Kerri Higuchi and John Cho welcomed their first child and a baby boy named Kage Choin in the year 2008. Their second child, a baby girl was born in February 2013. The family of four resides in Los Angeles, California and there have not been any rumours concerning them.
