If you have already seen the famous movie "Twilight", then you might have also seen  Filipino-Canadian Brett Chan.

Actor Brett Chan is a stunt coordinator, fight choreographer and one of the new-born vampires in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”.

“I’m one of them the newborn vampires. I’m kind of insignificant, but in a sense I play a big role, as my whole team does,” Chan said.

He did choreographed the stunts in the last Samurai, Nacho Libre, Fantastic 4 and X-Men 2, where he was badly injured.

“I pulled out one second too late. I’ve got second-degree burns all over my arms and on the side of my face,” said Chan.

Chan proudly shared that she started with the Ninja Turtles movie.

“You want to audition for the Ninja Turtles? I said yeah, definitely. So I went on and I got it. So I was always a bad guy in Ninja Turtles. It just kinda snowballed from there,” he said.

Chan has a lot of background in martial arts, shotokan, taekwondo and arnis. His dad literally forced him to go into martial arts and it paid off.

For years now, he has been working closely with Hollywood A-Listers for years now.

“Halle Berry, she was a pleasure to be around. Tom Cruise was fabulous. Tom Cruise did 99% of his stunts in the (movie) Last Samurai,” he said.

Chan also aspires to create a whole new world for action movies in the Philippines.

“I think it would do great to bring the Hollywood aspect of action and film making into the Philippines market,” he said.
