Subtitle Indonesia / YouTube, ABC / YouTube

In 1984, a 42-year-old Harrison Ford starred in the second installment of the epic Indiana Jones franchise. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom served as a prequel to the first film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. Starring alongside Ford was Kate Capshaw,  Amrish Puri, Roshan Seth, Philip Stone, and Ke Huy Quan. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg.

Ke Huy Quan was just 12 years old when the movie came out, and it kicked off a successful child acting career. Unfortunately, Quan couldn’t find much work as an actor after 1996. He ended up going behind the scenes in a few different roles such as an assistant fight choreographer, assistant director, and more. In 2018, Quan was inspired by the film Crazy Rich Asians to get back into acting. He was quickly cast in the movie Everything Everywhere All At Once.

During this awards season, Quan has taken home several awards for his role as Waymond Wang, including a Golden Globe, SAG Award, Independent Spirit Award, and an Academy Award.


The film won Best Ensemble at the SAG Awards and Best Picture at the Academy Awards. 1883 star Harrison Ford was the celebrity chosen to hand out the Best Picture statue at the Academy Awards on Sunday (March 12). 

The 80-year-old actor happily announced Everything Everywhere All At Once had won the biggest award of the night, and the audience erupted in cheers as the cast and directors made their way to the stage. When Quan walked up to the stage, he and Ford embraced in a huge hug. Quan then kissed him on the cheek and started jumping up and down in excitement.

The cameras cut to Spielberg, who cast Quan in the Indiana Jones film nearly 40 years ago, proudly watching from the audience and pumping his fists in excitement.

The reunion between Ford and Quan has become one of the most talked about and viral moments during the Academy Awards. See some reactions below!
