Personal Quotes (1)

[on drinking snake blood in No Retreat, No Surrender 2 (1987)] At first I wasn't going to do it. Use some tomato juice or something to fake it. Then, through an interpreter, Corey Yuen explained what he wanted to do. Dolly-track from the snake to the table, no cuts. In the same spirit of performing a stunt I agreed to do it. If the audience can see that it is really you doing it then it adds to the story. Besides, they are going to sacrifice the snake anyway, might as well honor him by drinking his blood. It''s considered an aphrodisiac but after they mix it with Chinese whiskey all I can say is it tasted like an emergency room.
