Harry Endo was a staple on Hawaii Five-O. He is best known for playing forensic scientist Che Fong in the series, and that is mostly all he did acting-wise during his lifetime. Harry was born in 1922 in Colorado. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1941 and spent some time in Europe as a radio operator.

Later, he moved to Hawaii and lived there for most of his life. He was filming a commercial for his employer, Territorial Savings Bank when he was approached for an acting role in Hawaii Five-O. He was one of the original characters on the series and reprised his role in the TV movie in 1997.

The only other acting roles he had were in a few episodes of Magnum P.I., Murder, She Wrote, and Jack and the Fatman. He seemingly retired from acting after that, only returning to appear in the Hawaii Five-O TV movie.
