19 March 2018Asia megastar Daniel Wu on his supporting turn in 'Tomb Raider'
Twenty years ago, with a University of Oregon architecture degree under his belt, Bay Area kid Daniel Wu took a serendipitous trip to Hong Kong as his graduation present. He wanted to witness the handover, stay a few months, then go home and figure out what to do with his life.
But a chance scouting in a bar led to a commercial gig, then some modeling. Chinese director Yonfan saw the commercial and approached Wu with an offer he couldn't refuse — although he tried.
"He asked me to play the lead in his movie," said Wu, revisiting the moment his accidental career as one of China's biggest movie stars began. "I was like, 'What are you talking about? I've never acted before and you want me to be the lead in your movie? That's crazy!'"
Born and raised in Northern California to Shanghainese parents, and discovered in Asia, the details of Wu's unlikely origin story are well known to his massive Chinese fan base overseas, where the 43-year-old actor and producer is now a superfamous A-lister who gets swarmed by paparazzi whenever he leaves the house.

20 February 2018K.Flay Debuts New Song for 'Tomb Raider' Movie
"I wrote "Run for Your Life" in a hotel room in Johnson City, Tennessee, a few hours before my show that night. I think the frantic energy of touring found its way into the track," says the singer-songwriter, who is behind the popular rock track "Blood in the Cut" and last year released her debut studio album, Every Where Is Some Where.
Oscar winner Alicia Vikander stars in the reboot, which tells the origin story of Lara Croft, following an inexperienced Lara as she searches for the truth behind her father's disappearance years earlier.
"This track was a new challenge for me — writing a song from a perspective outside my own, trying to capture the spirit and energy of a film I hadn’t seen in full yet. (PS I’ve of course seen it now and it’s awesome)," says K.Flay.
Tomb Raider hits theaters March 16. Listen to "Run for Your Life" from K.FLay,
