George Cheung

Over the course of his long and varied career, George Cheung has appeared as a supporting actor in everything from the mind-bending TV mystery series "Lost" to the gentle spy parody "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" and performed as a stuntman in numerous feature films. Cheung broke into film and television in the mid-'70s and spent several years appearing in small roles in shows like the private investigator drama "The Rockford Files" and the sky's-the-limit adventure series "Fantasy Island." In 1982, he landed a recurring role as a Malaysian bartender on the '30s-era adventure serial "Bring 'Em Back Alive," about the daring exploits of a big game hunter in Singapore. After appearing in a small but memorable role as a Chinese lounge singer in "Sneakers," which starred Robert Redford as the leader of a ragtag group of computer security experts racing to recover a valuable microchip, Cheung was cast in a guest role on the short-lived soap opera "Sunset Beach." He appeared in a minor role in the big-budget Hollywood adaptation of the '70s cop drama "Starsky & Hutch" and later played a pivotal role as a Chinese ambassador in the final season of "Lost." In addition to his work as an actor, Cheung worked as a stuntman on many high-profile films, including the epic 1988 TV mini-series "War and Remembrance" and the campy sci-fi film "Mars Attacks! ."
