  • He attended Power Morphicon in 2007 and 2012.
  • He has been married to his wife Amy since 2003, and they have one child named Novi.
  • He has three siblings, Cindy, Michael, and Diana.
  • Studied Shaolin Kung Fu in Texas under Master James Clark. Master Clark showed him an advert in the newspaper about an audition for Power Rangers, where he subsequently got his start in film.
  • He is half-Korean on his mother's side and half Irish on his father's side.
  • Like Daniel Southworth and Patricia Ja Lee, he went on to do voice work for anime and video games--his most notable roles are Ichigo in Bleach, and Nero in Devil May Cry 4.
  • He has partnered with Carlucci Weyant to form Double Helix Entertainment. For his voicework, he is best known as voicing older teenage boys in animes and video games.
  • He was the only Power Ranger star from the Saban seasons to return for the 15th Anniversary Special, as well as the second Saban season star to reprise his role in a Disney-era season (after Jason David Frank reprised his role in Dino Thunder).
  • He was the youngest actor during the MMPR era at age 18.
  • Bosch did all his own ninja suit stunts in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie because his stunt actor had broken his leg during training. He also came up with the idea of Adam being upset his Ninja powers were drawn from the Frog.
  • Bosch has stated that he was always interested by the idea of portraying his character Adam in a death scene. [1]
  • He was the only actor to reprise his ranger role for the Power Rangers Super Megaforce video game. As well as Adam, he voiced Troy, Nick, and Tommy's Red Ranger forms (but oddly, not his Mighty Morphin forms).
