I had a lot of fun chatting with Monica at Colorwebmag about my work as a Chinese American actor and the responsibilities and opportunities that come with that job.

Friday nights, 10pm, Cinemax.
I am so excited about season 2 of Warrior. Here’s a trailer and some articles hinting at what’s coming soon!
Here we go! I am so excited for Season 2. If you liked Season 1, you’ll love Season 2. We go deeper into the story of Ah Sam and his action-packed emotional journey through the America of the 1870’s. This ain’t China, it’s Chinatown Woo hoo! – Perry
I have a new reel cut, mostly from season 1 of warrior! Enjoy. Hope you’re off to a great 2020, a brand spanking new decade!
Finally, after a year of shooting. Season 1 aris April 5th!
This is an excerpt from Becoming Warrior Part 2 of an 8 part series about Bruce Lee and how the Warrior series came about. Includes interviews with the casts. I’m on this one.
This production is a dream come true. FInally, Hollywood is telling the story of immigrants from the perspective of the immigrants. This particular story centers on the Chinese and Irish experience but really includes everyone who came to American and face severe discrimination. Thanks you to produces Justin Lin, Jonathan Tropper and Shannon Lee for bringing to fruition Bruce lee’s creative idea and making this immense piece of art!
I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it!
I’m so excited to be able to share this new trailer for Warrior on Cinemax. Season 1 will be airing in 2019. I’ll be filming Season 2 Jan – May in South Africa. Is is a high octane show based on original writings by Bruce Lee. It is being produced by Jonathan Tropper, Justin Lin and Shannon Lee and Richard Sharkey, among others. Soooo excited!
The tour of PANORAMA was a smashing success. We played to sold out houses in Rome, Potenza and Bari, Italy. This unique theater production was a collaboration between La Mama E.T.C in New York City and the Italian theater company MOTUS. The actors played themselves in auditions tapes that unfolded into personal stories of traveling across borders – physical, mental, cultural and political. See the New York Times review here: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/12/theater/review-panorama-motus-under-the-radar.html
The audiences in Italy were so amazing. And so were some of the theaters. The one in Bari was an old opera house.
Here’s a great review in Italian: https://www.alfabeta2.it/2018/11/11/il-panorama-esistenziale-di-motus/
L-R: Eugene the Poogene, Perry Yung, Maura Donohue, Zishan Ugurlu, Valios Mickens, Heather Paauwe.
On a travel day, we were gifted a trip to one of the oldest continuous human settlements – Matera. Behind me are paleolithic caves where the earliest humans settled.
It’s great to be back in New York City after three weeks of touring. Have to catch up on much needed rest before taking off to South Africa to shoot Season 2 of WARRIOR.
Bye for now.
Oh yes, happy Holidays! – Perry
