From their bedroom to the living room, he would take the bag with him everywhere.
A biography in the Guardian on Ke claims that Quan later collaborated with action choreographer Corey Yuen on such films as X-Men (the actor is skilled in martial arts) and served as assistant director on Wong Kar-opulent wai’s love story 2046.
The pair live in Los Angeles and have been together for 22 years since Wong originally suggested they go on a date.
The couple appears to have no children as of yet. In addition, neither of them has openly stated that they intend to have children.
