We're not surprised that Harrison Ford is proud of Ke Huy Quan. After all, he's worked with Quan firsthand when the latter was a promising child actor. Although Quan has chosen to stay out of the limelight for more than 20 years, his epic comeback in the 2022 film was truly worthy of several awards.

Interestingly, Ke Huy Quan had previously revealed that he truly enjoyed working on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom because he got to meet some cool people who turned out to be major stars.

"We shot the majority of the movie in London at Elstree Studios. And one day, two grown-ups came to visit us, and I didn't even know who they were at that time," Quan said. "And it was Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. And we just spent an entire afternoon together."

Ke Huy Quan is set to reunite with Everything Everywhere All at Once co-star Michelle Yeoh in the live-action adaptation of Gene Luen Yang's graphic novel American Born Chinese. He will also appear in the second season of Loki.

Harrison Ford returns as Indy in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny which hits theaters on June 30, 2023.
