Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John "Johnny" Lone is a Hong Kong born American actor of Chinese and English descent. Lone has played roles as diverse as a caveman in Iceman (1984), the last Emperor of China in The Last Emperor (1987), and an apparently female opera performer in M. Butterfly (1993). Lone was born as Ng Kwok-leung in Hong Kong. He was raised in a Hong Kong orphanage. He began training at Hong Kong's Chiu Chiu Academy and at the Peking Opera. It was here, at the age of ten he was given the name Johnny. He later chose the name Lone to reflect the fact that he was an orphan and for its similarity to Lung, his Chinese name. Sponsored by an American family, he left the Peking Opera troupe and emigrated to Los Angeles, California. In the United States he continued his performing arts studies at American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, California. Eventually, he moved to New York City, to pursue a career on stage.show more
