Arrow - Byron Mann talks Yao Fei - Interview

Thanks to Philomina for the heads up.

1. You went to law school, graduated and passed the bar. How and why did you get into acting instead of pursuing a career as a lawyer?

There was a popular TV show about lawyers called "L.A. Law" at that time and I wanted to be like one of those lawyers on the show: give impassioned speeches in court and somehow there's always a hot blonde waiting for you at home at the end of the day. But during law school I realized that what lawyers do on TV is nothing like what they do in real life: they're in their offices 12 hours a day researching and writing perfect contracts. When they go home, there are never any hot beauties waiting for them! An attorney I interned for one summer advised me to pursue something I enjoyed doing instead. The only thing I remember doing that I enjoyed was acting (in high school). I was already going to school in Los Angeles, so I gave acting a try. Once I started to work as an actor, I never looked back.

2. Your movie "The Man with the Iron Fists" is in the cinemas in Germany right now. What was working with Quentin Tarantino like? What was his input?

This movie is "presented by Quentin Tarantino". He came out to visit us in China for two weeks and it was great meeting him there. Even though I didn't work with him directly, per se, this movie has his fingerprints all over it: our director, RZA, scored the music for "Kill Bill"; our co-writer and producer, Eli Roth, is his frequent collaborator; our editor and special effects supervisor are also his frequent collaborators. I understand he was working with RZA and Eli Roth during the script stage and all the way through post-production. RZA told me that he said very nice things about my performance after he screened the final cut.

3. The movie is RZA's directorial debut. What was the atmosphere on set like?

It was fun working with RZA. He likes to work hard and play hard. Every morning, all of us - RZA, Eli Roth, Cung Le, David Bautista, Rick Yune and myself - would have breakfast together. RZA would usually share with us his daily words of wisdom: about life, women, acting, martial arts, anything that seemed relevant during the day. Then we would go around sharing stories about our own lives. It felt like an Alcoholic Anonymous meeting - China style! I really enjoyed that time. Then on Friday night, RZA would take us all to Shanghai City to get American food and we would party to dawn. Like I said, we worked hard, played hard.
