The tough, sinewy Asian American character actor Galen Yuen played a number of bit parts in Hollywood action and martial arts films, from the early '90s onward. At least in the beginning, these constituted stock roles-such as an appearance as a cleaning man in the 1990 Revealing Evidence: Stalking the Honolulu Strangler, a desk bookie in the same year's Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle Lionheart, and a smuggler in the 1991 Van Damme starrer Double Impact. Yuen stepped behind the camera to helm a segment of the omnibus-style urban drama Riot (1997), and received his highest billing up through that time with his role as Y.C. in maverick director Werner Herzog's Vietnam-era actioner Rescue Dawn.
