Michelle Yeoh almost quit acting due to a horrific stunts injury in her early career.

The on-set accident left Yeoh with a broken torso and neck.

While recovering and considering retirement, Quentin Tarantino visited the stuntwoman.

Tarantino arrived in Hongkong to see only Yeoh, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li.

The iconic filmmaker told the Malaysian beauty of his favorite action scenes of hers.

Tarantino's visit encouraged Yeoh to pursue what became a successful career in Hollywood.

The "Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings" actress is nominated for a Critics' Choice Award.

Yeoh is the lead in an A24 movie, "Everything Everywhere All at Once," premiering on March 25.

The martial arts legend plays an aging Chinese immigrant who ends up tangled in the multiverse.
