Born in the Hong Kong, living in the U.S. from the age of 11, martial arts expert and actor Robin Shou was a veteran star of over 20 Hong Kong actioners when he finally returned stateside to make his Hollywood debut playing Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat (1997). Originally a civil engineer, Shou went to Hong Kong as a tourist. There, a producer offered him a small role as a KGB killer in his latest film. Shou, a former International Forms Champion, a four-time Traditional Form Grand Champion in California, and member of the National Wu Shu Team, proved a natural in front of the camera and quickly became a star. Like Jackie Chan and similar action heroes, Shou performs his own stunts. In 1997, he co-starred with the late comedian Chris Farley in the popular Beverly Hills Ninja.
