I 1 h B WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 2, 1996 APPLAUSE! THE SALINA JOURNAL Jackie Chan's Gal Pal Never Misses a Chance to Risk Life and limb By CONSTANCE SOMMER Associated Press Writer A fter another long day of L\ plunging off bridges, -A. AJeaping across rooftops and dangling from helicopters, actress Michelle Khan sometimes pauses to take stock. "I sit back and I think it's only a movie — it's not worth risking my life for," says the Malaysian- born, martial arts sensation whose death-defying stunts have taken Asian film audiences by storm. "But then I think," and here she laughs, "I would never be able to let someone else have all the fun!" Khan — a 14-year veteran of the silver screen — made her U.S. debut last July when Miramax released "Supercop," a 1992 movie also starring Jackie Chan. She sounds properly British in a phone interview from Hong Kong, only a touch of an accent revealing her Asian roots. That's because Khan, 34, moved to England as a girl to study ballet but quit at age 17 when she injured her back. "The specialist told me, 'No more,"' she said. "It was like having your dreams crumble right in front of your eyes." Of course, had Khan's back never ached, she would not have landed back in Asia, filming a commercial with martial arts star Jackie Chan. That led to a movie role, which led to a unique film career as a female actress capable of surviving all the hairbrained feats the Asian male actors do. "It's challenging," she explained of the stunts. "At that moment, you are Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, all rolled into one. "And that's the reason you keep going back and doing it." 13-823-6372 1-800-569-5653 Manual Transmission & Transfer Case WAREHOUSE Replacement Parts For JEEP • FORD • CHEV • GM SPICER* DANA Power Train Components TP« | f 729 N.
