Personal Quote:

Again, I wanted to compare myself with another martial arts icon in Steven Segal. I had worked with him three other times in the past. It is true he can be difficult at times but, I had no problem with him. He is a very gifted choreographer and technician. Dion Lam is an incredible, one of the best, fight technicians I have ever worked with. I don't prefer wire-work. See more »

Trivia:

Appeared in the trailer for Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004) when both were still due to be released as one movie. He does not appear in either Volume 1 or 2 of the theatrical version, but he appears in deleted scenes of the movies. See more »
