Lou Diamond Phillips
was born on Feb. 17, 1962 in the Phillipines.
Phillips is actually only 1/8 Cherokee Indian even
though he often plays Native American roles. The
movie world really didn't begin seeing Phillips until
the 80's, and he starred in Interface (1984), Trespasses
(1986), La Bamba (1987), Stand and Deliver (1988), Young
Guns (1988), Dakota (1988), Disorganized Crime (1989),
and Renegades (1989). As far as TV is concerned,
he would show up every now and again (examples include
Miami Vice and Dallas).
