At about six years old, Alex Chung began his pursuit of martial arts in Tae Kwon Do. And in the years there after, he also took up Judo and Boxing. Influenced by a healthy blend of American Hollywood blockbusters and classic 80’s Hong Kong action cinema, Alex would eventually find himself sharing similar circles with fellow Canadian actor, DL MacDonald, prior to starting their own martial arts stunt team, Eclipse Stunts, as well as his own independent film group, Heroic Melon Collective.
Alex described his experience in working with one of Canada’s brightest and talented film groups. He says “Working with Eclipse is great. It’s a good mix of business and pleasure. When we’re working on stuff, we’re having such a good time it feels like we’re just hanging out. Same thing working with other indie action groups. It’s a really warm community.”
Now 25, Alex
hopes to share the set someday with fellow contemporary martial arts cinema heavy hitters like Michael Jai White
and Scott Adkins
. And by the looks of Alex’s latest action reel, clearly ready he is to measure up and take his craft all the way to represent his team in an industry he was meant for.
