短轮 - 印第安纳琼斯的快速谈话11岁的中文伙伴 - 在剧本的页面上是一个令人难以置信的角色印第安纳琼斯和厄运神庙那but finding a kid talented enough to do the part justice was not easy. The production held casting calls all over the globe (包括多伦多），但没有找到他们的男人，呃，孩子。
随着生产计划在三周内开始，越来越绝望的生产商在洛杉矶的一所小学上进行了大规模的开放式演员，并要求学校教师鼓励任何可能是试镜的孩子。一位老师说服了一个人的学生是完美的。这个男孩 - 谁出生在越南南部的中国血统的父母 - 同意留在学校和试镜后。只有一个问题：男孩通常在放学后走了他的弟弟家，所以他的小弟弟也必须标记到试镜。这个男孩可能希望他的弟弟坐在静静地等待，但这不是发生的事情。

Quan — who had never seen a Steven Spielberg film — wasn't intimidated one bit and quickly said yes. His audition must have gone well, because the next day Spielberg sent a driver to pick up Quan.
Quan said, "At that time, my mom didn’t know what this was all about, she thought it was some important meeting, so she put me in this three-piece suit with a little gold chain and a vest and everything.”

Quan did as told, and when he returned, he met Spielberg (the director), George Lucas (the producer), and Harrison Ford (Indy, of course). “We spent an afternoon together, and three weeks later I was on a plane to Sri Lanka, and it was one of the greatest adventures of my life."
