He is known for such diverse roles as a caveman in Iceman (1984), the last Emperor of China in The Last Emperor (1987) and an apparently female opera performer in M. Butterfly (1993). He began training at Hong Kong's Chiu Chiu Academy and at the Peking Opera where, at the age of 10, he was given the American name of Johnny (and his last name of Leung was changed to Lone). Lone continued his education at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena and New York. John Long became part of the East/West Players along with other notable Asian actors such as Mako, Sab Shimono and Soon Tek Oh. He performed in Pacific Overtures as the Lion Dancer and his discipline and talent blossomed. He danced, sang, wrote and directed. He was signed to the then-famous Bessie Loo Agency, as most of the Asian talent of that day was represented by them. The early years of his career consisted of small television roles, local theater and a lot of studying. His first real break came with the Di Laurentis remake of King Kong as the ship's cook. His further international film appearances include the role of corrupt Hong Kong cop Ricky Tan in Rush Hour 2 as well as being cast in the 1995 movie The Hunted, where he played dangerous assassin Kinjo alongside Christopher Lambert. He attended Santa Ana Community College, where he met Nina Savino, an Asian American studying drama and art, and they married in 1972. Lone also directed an acclaimed documentary on the Chinese Railroad workers in America which aired on PBS. He was voted one of the 50 most Beautiful People of the Year by People Magazine in 1990.
