10 Martial Arts Actors Who Deserve More Recognition

9) Marko Zaror

This Chilean born martial artist/stuntman is still in the early stages of cutting his teeth in the action movie world. So why is he on this list? Because his villainous performance as Raul “Dolor” Quinones in Isaac Florentine’s seminal sequel and highly acclaimed DTV film Undisputed 3: Redemption should’ve launched him right there and then.

Undisputed 3 was released in 2010, so that’s 3 years that have now elapsed, and the Chilean Dragon (as he is dubbed) has been completely off the radar until now. He starred in and served as fight choreographer for a number of low budget Spanish films including Kiltro (2006), Mirageman (2007) and Mandrill (2009), which all allowed him to showcase his immaculate Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do and acrobatic abilities. He can move his hands and feet as fast as lightning, and while he isn’t overly bulked up, he has an unmistakable presence and can match up to the best of them.

Zaror can now be seen in theaters now opposite Danny Trejo in the star-studded Machete Kills, so who knows what doors that will open up for him.

Come on Hollywood, give this guy the breakthrough movie that he so greatly deserves!
