Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An Asian-American actor with Korean roots, Will Yun Lee is most readily recognizable for his villainous turns in Hollywood movies. The son of a Tae Kwon Do expert, Lee trained in martial arts during his youth. After cutting his teeth on a few television guest spots, Lee had his big break as a key supporting character in the comic-book-based TV movie "Witchblade" (TNT, 2000) and reprised his role in the series (TNT, 2001-02). A bad-guy turn in the Bond film "Die Another Day" (2002) raised Lee's profile significantly, and soon he was alternating movie and TV parts, notably going on to play formidable adversaries in the big-budget Marvel Comics adaptations "Elektra" (2005) and "The Wolverine" (2013).
