Born Lee Jun Fan to actor Lee Hoi-Chuen and Grace Lee on Nov. 27, 1940 in San Francisco, CA, his Anglicized name was courtesy of the supervising doctor, Mary Glover. Lee's father was a noted singer with the Cantonese Opera in both his native Hong Kong and the United States, so it was not surprising that the young boy would make his acting debut at just three months in a stage production with his father. At age three, Lee's family relocated to Kowloon in Hong Kong, and three years later, he began landing juvenile roles in local film productions. Impressed with his scrappy screen persona, Lee soon graduated to supporting and lead roles, often under the name "Lee Siu Lung" or "Little Dragon."Continue Bio >>
