Lewis Tan Shirtless Photos. Famewatchers, meet Lewis Tan aka The Next Big Asian Hollywood Action Star. The handsome British-Chinese actor/model is co-starring as the villain Zhou Cheng in the upcoming Netflix series Iron Fist.
According to imdb.com, Lewis will be appearing in 8 episodes of the show which will begin streaming in 2017. Apparently, he auditioned for the lead role, Danny Rand, but was cast instead as Zhou Cheng. More from i09.com:
Actor Lewis Tan will soon be hitting TV screens as one of the main villains in Iron Fist, but he actually fought to make the hero of the story Asian, instead of yet another bad guy.
Tan shared on Twitter that he “almost” played Danny Rand, but the role ultimately went to Game of Thrones actor Finn Jones. Instead, Tan was cast as Zhou Cheng, a servant of Ch’i-Lin who’s tasked with killing every iteration of the Iron Fist. Tan said he’s happy playing Zhou, even showing off some of his stunt choreography in an online video, but added that we need more Asian heroes in our media.
We 100% agree with Lewis that Hollywood needs a better job in its portrayal of Asians. Let’s hope things move in that direction in the coming years.
