Unicorn Chan (literal translation of his Chinese stage name "kei-luhn", which means Unicorn, and "siu" meaning small), was one of Bruce Lee's best friends since childhood. Along with Bruce, the two were often cast as juvenile delinquents in Hong Kong films. One of their earliest films together was Little Cheung (1950). When Bruce cut short his film career to pursuit studies in the US, Unicorn Chan continued acting in Hong Kong films, playing minor and supporting roles, often as villainous sidekicks or hoodlums. When Bruce returned to Hong Kong to revive his career, which would make him a martial arts icon, Unicorn was often given film roles or jobs in Bruce's projects. At Bruce Lee's funeral, Unicorn Chan was one of his pallbearers.
