Ke Huy Quan Recalls Losing His Health Insurance & Struggling To Find Roles Prior To Oscars Win
Ke Huy Quan is filled with enthusiasm and gratitude following his Oscar win for Best Supporting Actor! In the Academy Awards press room, the “Everything Everywhere All At Once” actor reflected on the ups and downs of Hollywood journey, including losing his health insurance during the pandemic and the hurdles he encountered looking for roles. “I would [call my agent] and say, ‘Hey, is there anything out there for me?’ And the answer would always be the same: ‘Oh, I’m so sorry, there’s nothing out there, but I’ll continue to look.’ So hopefully, when I call my agent tomorrow, he’ll give me another answer!” he told reporters. The actor also spoke about getting support from his “Goonies” co-stars and from his “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” director Steven Spielberg.
