MAN OF TAI CHI
TIGER CHEN ("Tiger") has been a martial artist since the age of eight, winning numerous competitions in Mainland China for wushu. He moved to the United States at the age of 19 to compete in karate and tai chi, which is where he first attracted the attention of martial arts filmmaker Yuen Woo Ping, who was just beginning to put together the team for the Wachowski Brothers film THE MATRIX. Charged with both training the film's American stars and performing, Hu Chen worked on all three MATRIX films. His subsequent stunt credits include Ang Lee's acclaimed CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, the blockbuster CHARLIE'S ANGELS, and Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL films. As an actor, his first speaking role was in Laurence Fishburne's ONCE IN A LIFE; he later starred in the Jackie Chan-produced HOUSE OF FURY and last year co-wrote and starred in KUNG FU HERO. Quickly becoming an international celebrity, Tiger was recently featured on the Travel Channel's show "Bizarre Foods" escorting host Andrew Zimmern around his hometown province of Sichuan.
