Quan decided to quit acting and started working with specialists in the industry.

She enrolled in the film program at the University of Southern California (USC) and spent a decade participating in productions in the United States and Asia.

She came to work with Corey Yuen to

choreograph the fight scenes



in 2000.

Then the winds of inclusion and change began to blow in Hollywood, obsessed with correcting the historical discrimination that has characterized the industry for decades, and Quan saw an opportunity, inspired by the success of

Crazy Rich Asians (Madly millionaires)


The 51-year-old actor found an agent and two weeks later landed the role for which he has won no end of awards.


All At Once Everywhere

, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, Quan plays the husband of a Chinese immigrant who runs a laundromat in a fast-paced, frenetic sci-fi film halfway between comedy and drama that has achieved more nominations than any other: 11. It will compete with Brendan Gleeson, Brian Tyree Henry, Judd Hirsch and Barry Keoghan in the category, the great favorite after having won the Golden Globe, the Critics Choice Award and thirty other awards.

Her streak is hellish.

The decision to return has more than compensated him, despite many doubts, fearful of the public's reaction to see him so many years later.

"I was 50 years old when I decided to return to acting, and

it was not a decision I made lightly

"It took courage to give voice to this dream that I had had, a dream that I had to walk away from and from which I thought I would not find a way back."

The dream was actually somewhat accidental.

He admits that he was not looking to be an actor

, but finding an opportunity with Spielberg and Harrison Ford made him change course at a very young age.

The problem was the subsequent downhill, when the phone stopped ringing, with the added difficulty of being an Asian actor, always typecast in certain roles that did not appeal to him.

Now he feels that everything has changed, that the representation on the small and big screen is more realistic for his people.

For this reason, among other things, he has decided to stop using the Jonathan that he set out to open more doors in the US market, and has reverted to his original given name, Ke.

If logic prevails, in March he will be able to put the icing on the cake of his famous return to the cinema.

With an Oscar.
