Le recently answered a few questions about working on Wong Kar Wai's "The Grandmaster."
Tell us about your role in The Grandmaster?
My role in The Grandmaster is a character who specializes in kicks.
Tell us what it was like working with director Wong Kar Wai and stunt choreographer Yuen Woo Ping?
Working with Wong Kar Wai was an amazing experience. He was definitely one of the best directors I have worked with. This is the second time I worked with Master Woo Ping! He is a legend in action directing and I learned so much from him.
What kind of training and how much preparation did you have to do for the fight scenes in the film?
I didn't have to do much except show up with my game face. I would've had to do a lot more if I came back to finish another scene but I was tied up on shooting The Man with The Iron Fist.
What's your next film project?
My next film project is called Targets. I can't say much but I think the fans will like what I am going to do in this movie.
When can UFC fans expect to see you fight again?
It would've been this year but I am going to do UFC Ultimate Fighter: China. My role will not be a coach but something cooler!
