Arcadia High School graduate Sean Dulake can be seen later this month acting alongside Liam Neeson in a big-budget Korean War film called “Battle for Incheon: Operation Chromite.”
The son of one of Arcadia’s most successful realtors for many years, Imy Dulake, and her husband Richard Dulake, is prominent with some of the first lines of dialogue in the opening scenes of the movie standing alongside Neeson as General Douglas MacArthur.
Dulake’s character, English-speaking Korean Lt. Col. Edward L. Rowny, is MacArthur’s right-hand man in every tense moment on-and-off-the-battlefield (at left in photo below). Dulake also wrote the English dialogue for the film, including Neeson’s. He and Dulake are the primary characters who speak English in this production that was the most expensive film produced in South Korea last year and grossed nearly $50 million in that country alone. It gets released on DVD ($17.99) and Blu-ray ($19.99) in American retail stores on Jan. 24, and on digital on-demand services Jan. 10.
