Matthew James Moy (born February 3, 1984) is a Chinese-American actor and artist. He co-starred as Han Lee on the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls and provides the voice of Lars Barriga on Steven Universe.
Early life and education
Moy was born and raised in San Francisco, California. Moy describes himself as a third- or fourth-generation Chinese-American. He attended the University of California, Davis, graduating with a bachelor's degree in Japanese and a minor in linguistics. Moy's father was a high school teacher, while his mother was a language therapist. He has one elder sister.
Moy has appeared on several television shows, including How I Met Your Mother, Criminal Minds, Zeke and Luther, Good Luck Charlie, and Kickin' It, and had a recurring role as Shawn the Mathlete on iCarly. He played Trang in the ninth season of the sitcom Scrubs. He has also made guest star appearances on Big Time Rush as famous blogger Deke and on The Middle as Takayuki, the Heck family's Japanese foreign exchange student. He appeared on the fifth episode of the Syfy reality game show Cha$e and voices Lars on the Cartoon Network animated series Steven Universe, a role which has earned him critical praise.
When not acting, Moy enjoys drawing and painting, as evidenced by his Instagram account.
In 2012, during the filming of the second season of 2 Broke Girls, Moy unknowingly suffered a minor stroke in his sleep, waking to feeling weakness and motor skill loss in his right side. Driving himself to urgent care, doctors discovered bleeding in his brain, but no further deterioration. The loss of motor skills in Moy's right side required a year of physical therapy, and re-learning to write with his right hand, but he has since made a full recovery. Moy had kept the incident private from media until 2017.
