Will Yun Lee (born March 22, 1971) is a Korean-American actor and martial artist from Arlington, Virginia.

He's been acting since 1997, often as characters either affiliated with The Triads and the Tongs, or people trying to take them down. His Star-Making Role was as Detective Danny Woo in the Witchblade TV series, and since then he's played the villain in the James Bond film Die Another Day, as well as voicing and lending his face to protagonist Wei Shen in Sleeping Dogs (2012).


Tropes common to his roles:

  • The Cast Showoff: In more actiony flicks he'll usually get a chance to show off his martial arts skills in-character, from practicing kata in Witchblade to beating the ever-loving crap out of the Empowered Badass Normal, former Delta Force protagonist in Intelligence.
  • Plays Great Ethnics: He's an American of Korean descent, but he's been cast as every Southeast Asian ethnicity under the sun at one point or another, as well as occasionally Latinos.


Video Example(s):


Colonel Tan-Sun Moon

Colonel Tan-Sun Moon is introduced to the audience while beating on a punching bag to work out some frustrations, then the punching bag is unzipped, revealing that he'd stuffed his anger management therapist in there.
