Lewis was only two when he did his first movie i.e. the 1990’s China Cry: A True Story. About the time he said—
“I was literally a baby playing a baby, my best acting. They paid me in toys.”
After that, decades of being in the industry and he had still not gotten his big hit, earning the likes of Prison Guard part in The Hangover Part III and a commando in Olympus Has Fallen.
When Lewis was offered to play Shatterstar in the 2018’s Deadpool 2, he thought this would be, his major break-out, until he found out that his character would die “horrific, hilarious and quick film deaths.”
He took this very badly to the extent that he retreated to meditate in the Japanese mountain town of Hakone.
Today, with Mortal Kombat, Lewis believes his stars have aligned for good. He considered this to be the best work of his career.
Moreover, he also starred in the Netflix martial arts film Wu Assassins: Fistful of Vengeance. At the time of this writing, he had already signed on to star as a Chinese-American CIA officer in Quantum Spy. Not to miss, he was hoping to be returning to Mortal Kombat in a sequel teased at the end of the film (released April 2021).
Is Lewis Tan Gay?
So, Lewis Tan notably became a bisexual X-Force member, Shatterstar in Deadpool 2. A leading reason why people started to query if he is gay in real life as well.
