Actor and poet Dante Basco (Avatar: The Last Airbender, Hook) appears at Boston University on Friday February 27, 2015 at 7:00 PM!
The BU Filipino Student Association is proud to present round two of our year-round lecture series. Our key speaker is Dante Basco!
FSA plans on holding a lecture series featuring prominent Filipino-American speakers who have risen to success in their respective fields, such as Dante Basco. Dante Basco is a Filipino-American Actor known for his roles as Rufio in Hook and Prince Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
He will be allotted an hour and fifteen minutes for his lecture with additional time for the audience to ask questions and potentially meet the speaker personally. This lecture series is a great opportunity to educate the BU community about how the speaker’s Filipino upbringing has impacted their decisions and morals in the stories he shares. As a prominent Filipino in the entertainment business, we can attract a broad array of students who are interested in hearing his story as well.
We hope that this event will show attendees a glimpse of what our Filipino heritage means to us–that it is not only one of which to be proud, but one whose ideals of love and unity we strive to share with as many as people as possible.

Dante starred in Newline’s Take the Lead, opposite Antonio Banderas. His flair for dance helped him lock this role down. Sandwiched in between his big screen roles, Dante further broke ground on the small screen with starring and guest starring roles on hit shows Moesha with Brandy; The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with Will Smith; Emmy Award-winning Entourage on HBO and HBO’s Def Poetry Jam alongside Mos Def. He is also voiced the lead roles in Disney’s animation series Jake Long: American Dragon as well as Prince Zuko in Nickelodeon’s phenomenal hit, Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Recently, Dante has begun to add a few off camera credits to his sizable resume as a producer for Kinetic Films, a rising indie production firm based in Honolulu and Los Angeles. He starred and produced two of Kinetic’s feature films, Paradise Broken and Hang Loose, the latter with friend and new co-collaborator Kev Jumba.
