Ke Huy Quan – Best supporting actor in “Everything Everywhere All at Once” Golden Globes

Ke Huy Quan has won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a motion picture “Everything Everywhere All at Once”
Quan took home the award Tuesday for his portrayal of doting husband and laundromat owner Waymond Wang in “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”
“I was raised to never forget where I came from and always remember who gave me my first oppo rtunity. I’m so happy to see Steven Spielberg here tonight. Steven, thank you. When I started my career as a child actor in ‘Indiana Jones’ … I started to wonder if that was it, if that was just luck.” He shares with the audience.
Ke Huy Quan was born in August 20th, 1971, he is a Vietnam – born American actor and stunt choreographer.
Quan’s portrayal in “Everything Everywhere,” where his compassionate and optimistic character aids in the salvation of the multiverse, and his marriage and family are kept intact, has been very well received. This part has a special meaning for Quan personally, as it denotes his re-emergence into the realm of acting after more than two decades of working in the background.
Quan earned fame in Hollywood as a child actor, playing iconic roles such as Short Round, the young sidekick of Indiana Jones, in the 1984 blockbuster “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. A year later, Quan once more found fame in the 1980s classic “The Goonies” as Data, the youngster among his neighbourhood gang with a penchant for inventiveness. Nonetheless, his early success was brief. Chances for Asian actors during that period were limited, Quan has said.
“I adore acting, but I couldn’t get a job. Hollywood had no use for me. There were no roles for me, so the majority of my late teens and early twenties were spent waiting for the phone to ring, and it rarely did,” Quan said at The Hollywood Reporter’s “Actors Roundtable” on Tuesday. “I had no other option but to move on, and the difficult part was giving up the dream that I had always wanted, but it was arduous to be an Asian actor back then.”
Quan ended up going to film school. With his acting dreams behind him, he pivoted his career, serving as a stunt coordinator and assistant director. It wasn’t until the 2018 rom-com “Crazy Rich Asians,” which featured an all-Asian cast, that he began to reconsider his options, he said at the roundtable. “Everything Everywhere” was the first film he auditioned for after his acting hiatus
