Perry began practicing martial arts training in 1975, and began performing stuntwork in the late 1980s after leaving the military. He has a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, which he earned at the age of twelve, and a second-degree black belt in Hapkido.
He began his acting career when he played Scorpion, Cyrax, and Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (Chris Casamassa was supposed to reprise as Scorpion but was working in Batman & Robin, though he would return in Conquest), and appeared in the Mortal Kombat: Conquest TV series, this time as Scorpion's main rival Sub-Zero, in addition to doing stuntwork for the main character of Kung Lao. In addition to the Mortal Kombat series, Perry has done stuntwork for various television shows and movies such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Scorpion King, 24, and Beowulf.
