New Girl Nick Tran

Ralph Ahn was 95 years old.

Nick Miller is certainly in mourning today. The actor of New Girl, Ralph Ahn, known for his recurring role as Tran in the sitcom carried by Zooey Deschanel, died at the age of 95 in these days. The cause of death was not disclosed.

Tran was that old Asian man that Nick often talked to, to guide himself through life and find some wisdom… Jake Johnson, who shared most of Tran’s scenes in New Girlexpressed his emotion on Instagram: “I loved when he was on set. It was a pleasure to work with him. He gave so much without having any response!

Appearing for the first time in season 2, Ralph Ahn had returned regularly to the series, in six episodes, often in the park, but also in a swimming pool, bathing Nick like a baby in an anthology sequence (below). He was part of the casting until the end, since we still found Tran in the finale of New Girl in 2018.
