por Kevin Polovi/Senior Correspondent, Yahoo Entertainment, Last year’s Hui Quan had a comeback tour. Now it’s time for the Ke Hui Quan Awards Tour.

The ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ star, who began his career as Short Round in ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’ (1984) and Data in ‘The Goonies’ (1985), won Best Actor Cast and Golden Globe Won. Considered the favorite to repeat at the Oscars in March.

Quan made her Globes moment instantly unforgettable when she enthusiastically acknowledged in the crowd the man who gave her her first break, “Temple of Doom” director Steven Spielberg, best known for his semi-autobiographical drama “The Fablemans.” The directors were nominated.

“I grew up never forgetting where I came from and always remembering who gave me my first chance,” said the 51-year-old Kwan passionately as he held up his globe. I’m so glad to see Steven Spielberg here tonight. Steve, thanks!”

(Quan shared a less public, but equally viral moment as Indiana Jones himself, with Harrison Ford, at the D23 expo in September.)

After appearing in the fourth and fifth seasons of “Head of the Class” (1990–1991) and the 1992 comedy “Encino Man”, Kwan largely disappeared from the public eye. He had difficulty finding acting work and transitioned to life behind the camera as a stunt choreographer in films such as ‘X-Men’ (2000) and ‘The One’ (2001).

Nearly 20 years later, “Everything Everywhere” directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (aka The Daniels) recruited Kwan to return to the screen to play Waymond Wang, a Chinese-American immigrant who runs a laundromat. Runs and seeks a divorce, and his alter ego from the multiverse.

“When I started my career as a child actor in ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,’ I felt very fortunate to be cast,” Kwan said during his speech. “As I got older, I began to wonder if that was it. If it was just luck. For so many years, I feared I had nothing more to offer. Whatever I did, I will never go beyond what I have achieved.” as a child.”

“Fortunately, after more than 30 years, two people thought of me. They remembered that kid. And they gave me a chance to try again.”

‘Everything Everywhere’, which became a sleeper hit and a phenomenon among movie lovers, brought Kwan back to an acting career. She has already been roped in to co-star in the second season of ‘Loki’ on Disney+.

“Everything that has happened since then is incredible,” Kwan said. “Dan Quan, Daniel Scheinert, thank you so much for helping me find my answer. You have given me more than I expected.”
