The Career of Bruce Lee Biopic Star Philip Ng

  2. 2.  A film executive with over 35 years of experience, David Nicksay currently produces feature films for Heliopolis Entertainment. David Nicksay's latest project is a Bruce Lee biopic titled Birth of the Dragon, which was released in September of 2016. The film details a private, but legendary Kung Fu showdown between Wong Jack Man and Bruce Lee in 1964, well before Lee was a martial arts superstar in North America. Lee is played in the film by Philip Ng, a 39-year- old Hong Kong native and accomplished Hollywood fight choreographer. Ng was raised in the United States since he was seven years old, but returned to Hong Kong in 2003 and has since appeared in films such as Invisible Target, Bodyguards & Assassins, and Once Upon a Time in Shanghai. His extensive martial arts background made him an ideal choice to play the iconic Lee. Ng is a sixth-generation practitioner of the Chinese martial art Choy lay Kung Fu and an instructor of Ving Tsun Kung Fu. He has also trained in Korean Taekwondo, boxing, Japanese Jujitsu, and Escrima. His resume includes 30 acting credits and he has assisted with stunts on seven films.
