Ford wasn’t the sole Oscars attendee who has witnessed Quan’s entire career. As Quan delivered his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor on Sunday night, the telecast briefly cut to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom director Steven Spielberg, who was beaming in the audience.
When Quan spoke to reporters backstage after his win, he recounted that during a commercial break, he rushed up to Spielberg and was warmly embraced.
- Quan shared that Spielberg said to him, “Ke, you are now an Oscar-winning actor.” Quan was moved by those words, and he added, “Hearing him say that meant the world to me, and I still cannot believe it. I mean, wow.”
