In Legend of the White Dragon, he plays “Xang,” one of the monks who is sworn to protect the white dragon crystal. He helps Erik Reed (played by Jason David Frank) in his journey to becoming The White Dragon and in his fight against the evil Dragon Prime.
The audience is in for a treat to see Dacascos and Jason David Frank on screen together as both are highly skilled martial artists.
Mark Dacascos’ Previous Roles in American Tokusatsu
Dacascos is so stranger to the American Tokusatsu genre as he has already had a few roles. One of which goes all the way back to 1986 when he played the original Red Ranger in the Bio-Man pilot. Bio-Man was Haim Saban’s first proof-of-concept for what we now know as Power Rangers. While Bio-Man has not been released to the public, images and promotional art have been uncovered.
He was also featured in Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight as Eubulon, the Advent Master and the creator of the Advent Decks, the main transformation device in the show.
Dacascos will be joining former Power Rangers actors, Jason David Frank (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and Jason Faunt (Power Rangers Time Force), in a brand new universe titled, Legend of the White Dragon. We at The Illuminerdi couldn’t be more excited to see Mark Dacascos join the cast!
Legend of the White Dragon Official Synopsis
The White Dragon, Erik Reed, has returned home to Virtuo City 3 years later after being defeated in a colossal battle against the ancient overlord, Ashtagor. The crystal he used to become the White Dragon was broken in two as a result of the epic battle, both pieces were subsequently lost. Being blamed for the destruction and collateral lives lost, his identity was outed after the battle thus making him a fugitive from the law.
We now follow Erik on his journey as he teams up with treasure hunters from the past who help him reclaim his power as the White Dragon. Once reunited with his powers, he and his team are now ready to battle a new threat, Dragon Prime, who seeks revenge against the White Dragon. Erik must now try and defeat Dragon Prime in order to get one step closer to clearing his name and being able to protect his family from an ancient evil that still lurks in the darkness… Ashtagor.
