Personal Quotes (1)

Who I look up to actually is Bruce Lee. He's the first person that, you know, really, before him there were no other Asian actors. He was the first and only one at the time. He's tremendous in so many ways, and so charismatic and energetic. And I would like to see maybe, you know, some other Asian people, you know, strive to take his place and do the things that he does. So, in terms of person I look up to is Bruce Lee. He was awesome, and I hope, what he opened up for us, I hope we take advantage of it and do something good with it. - (interviewed by Stefanie Bae, AAN News, February 9, 2009)
