According to the Daily Mail, “As a child star, Quan made a lasting impression in the second Indiana Jones film when he played a precocious orphan named Short Round. But after starring in the classic 1985 film The Goonies, Quan’s acting prospects gradually dried up,” .
“He transitioned into roles behind the camera, working as a stunt coordinator and assistant director.”
51-year-old Quan resuscitated his career in acting after the incredible success of Crazy Rich Asians.
