Early life

Film career

His first and probably most remembered film appearance was his film debut in the 1989 science fiction action film "Cyborg", as the main villain Fender Tremelo, playing opposite Jean-Claude Van Damme as the hero, Gibson Rickenbacker.According to the audio commentary on the DVD for "Urban Menace", director Albert Pyun found Klyn when he saw him surfing one day, and immediately thought he would be an excellent choice to play a villain, as he had an astounding physique and intense look.

He went on to appear in minor roles in other surfer-films, like "Red Surf" (teaming up with George Clooney) in 1990, and "Point Break" (going up against Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves in 1991, but with the exception of "Gangland" from 2000, he still got the bulk of his major roles in movies directed by Albert Pyun, like "Bloodmatch", "Kickboxer 2", "Dollman", "Nemesis", "Knights", "Blast", "The Wrecking Crew", "Corrupt", "Urban Menace", and "" from 2004.

Other roles that Klyn appeared in were mostly noted as on-screen personalities on the "Baywatch" television series throughout the 1990s and the 2000s.
