    He was actually English-Egyptian-Sudanese.
    His interest in the Chinese culture and mystique contributed greatly to the misconception that he was actually Chinese.
    Not only that, but he wound up typecast as Asian characters (dude did his job too well).
    His first name rhymes with ‘high,’ but his last name may rhyme with ‘tree’ or ‘play.’
    Prior to acting, he owned a bookshop in NYC and sold handmade pipes to famous smokers.
    His role in The Manchurian Candidate convinced creator Leonard Freeman he was the one for Hawaii Five-0.
    In addition to being a rector for Inner Truth Looking Place in Tempe, Arizona, he sponsored many tea ceremonies in metropolitan Phoenix.
