Leland Sun and M*A*S*HEdit
Leland Sun had 4 credited appearances on M*A*S*H ranging from Season 3 to Season 10. There is however some doubt about the appearance in Season 3: see the comments in the gallery. One of his more memorable appearances was as a wounded Chinese soldier in Season 8's "Are You Now, Margaret?". Leland is in character here, being ethnic Chinese. While in post op, he has a few lines where he expresses his thanks to Hawkeye in Cantonese.
