Ke Huy Quan Lost Health Insurance After Filming ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’
Oscar-nominated Everything Everywhere All At Once actor Ke Huy Quan is used to the long periods of inactivity in a performer’s life, but the former Goonies child star found himself in a particularly thorny stretch after filming the movie that would mark a major resurgence in his career.
Appearing on The Late Late Show With James Corden last night, Quan said his lack of employment – in part, at least, because of the Covid shutdown – resulted in the loss of health insurance after he couldn’t find work in 2021.
Filming on Everything Everywhere began in 2020 but was interrupted for eight months due to the pandemic shutdown. Quan told Corden that during the shutdown he auditioned for various roles with self-tapes, but “couldn’t get a single job.”
