Robin Shou Bio [IMDB] [website]

Shou exploded onto the martial arts action scene after taking a break from his civil engineering career to vacation in Asia. After appearing in over 30 Hong Kong films and always performing his own stunts, he landed the breakout role of a lifetime in the form of “Liu Kang” in the "Mortal Kombat" films, adapted from the mega-popular video game series. It was the tremendous box-office success that brought Shou to the forefront of Hollywood films. His starring role led to another martial arts role, playing Chris Farley’s brother in the comedy "Beverly Hills Ninja" (Columbia/TriStar).

After a string of number one movies and TV shows, Shou found his callings behind the camera and made his directorial debut in the documentary "Red Trousers: The Life of The Hong Kong Stuntman." The critically acclaimed documentary received the "Outstanding Achievement in Film Making" Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival and was pick up for theatrical release nation-wide and broadcasted on the Discovery World Channel in March 2005.

Having proved his versatility as a writer and director, Shou went back in front of the camera reuniting with Mortal Kombat director Paul W.S. Anderson in Universal Pictures' highly anticipated "Deathrace," co-staring with Jason Stathem and Joan Allen in Fall 2008.

In 2009, Shou wrapped another popular live-action video game adaptation distributed by Twentieth Century Fox, "Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-Li" co-starring with Kristin Kreuk, Michael Clark Duncan, and Neal McDonough. An accomplished martial artist and a four-time Traditional Form Grand Champion in California, Shou also trained Milla Jovovich for the blockbuster "Resident Evil" franchise.

Currently, Shou is gearing up to shoot "Death Race 3" this coming November after finishing his latest movie, Pirate Brothers.

Though many people compare him with the late Bruce Lee, Robin Shou proves to take his Asian-American heritage to a new level in American film by being featured as a phenomenal martial artist and accomplished actor. Robin’s artistic range as well as his striking physicality not only make Shou suitable to walk in the footsteps of a legend, but offer to make him a legend in his own time.
