Brian Glynn (born November 15th, 1967 in Chicago, Illinois, USA) is an American actor who was best known for playing as the physical body of Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat II, Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and Mortal Kombat Trilogy. He also made a minor appearance in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero as the God of Water, and as a monk. He also appeared in War Gods, performing as Warhead.
Despite the imposing stature of Shao Kahn, Glynn was in fact shorter than the majority of the other Mortal Kombat actors, necessitating the resulting captured images of him to be upscaled in order to properly represent Shao Kahn.
Currently, he lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.
