Trivia (3)

He was retired by the time Ang Lee began casting for his first full-length film, "Pushing Hands," but the director, who recalled watching Mr. Lung as a child, asked him to play the father. Although Mr. Lung had played a long string of toughs for television, he turned in a sensitive portrayal of a father faced with change.
Mr. Lung enlisted in Chiang Kai-shek's army as a teenager to fight the Communists. After they seized control of the mainland, he escaped to Taiwan, where he was chosen to join an army-sponsored acting troupe. Acting became his permanent career. His experience playing an array of roles for the troupe helped him in roughly 100 Chinese-language films and in Taiwanese soap operas.
Was frequently cast in films by Ang Lee.
