Mark Alan Dacascos is an American actor and martial artist. He won numerous karate and various styles of kung fu championships between the ages of 7 and 18. Enjoy Mark Dacascos’s best quotes below.
“A good choreographer is one that’s going to collaborate, teach, guide – everything. The wonderful thing on ‘Brotherhood of the Wolf’ was that we had Philip Kwok – he choreographed John Woo’s ‘Hard Boiled,’ and in the ’70s, he was a martial arts actor, stunt man, fighter, choreographer in Hong Kong.”
“My father is Chinese, Spanish, and Filipino; my mother is half-Irish and half-Japanese; Greek last name; born in Hawaii, raised in Germany.”
“I consider myself a martial artist and an actor. They can work together or individually. I love to do action. I love having a good role in which I can act and fight. That’s double happiness.”
“I do feel I’m being respectful to Buddhism and martial arts with ‘Mortal Kombat.’”
“I try to stay away from stuff that’s just action, action, action, action, action, and you kind of fast-forward through the dialogue scenes. I’m not interested in doing that. Give me a reason to fight, and I’ll go there. But don’t just make it, ‘You touched my pen! Haaa-yah!’ I’ve done that before.”
“The thing with ‘Mortal Kombat’ is we really deal with that: What is the right thing to do? When somebody does something bad, do you, then, in your mind, rectify the situation by doing something bad to them?”
