Brandon Lee

Brandon Bruce Lee (February 1, 1965 – March 31, 1993) was an American actor and martial artist. Lee is also known for being the only son of Bruce Lee and was accidentally killed during production of his breakthrough film The Crow (1994). Lee's father, who died in 1973, was iconic in the field of martial arts both as a practitioner and leading man in their films. Lee followed his father into both of the fields, trained martial arts with some of his father's students and studied acting at Emerson College and the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. In 1986, Lee made his screen debut opposite David Carradine in the television film Kung Fu: The Movie, where he received second billing and starred in his first leading role in the Hong Kong action film Legacy of Rage.

“Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times. And a very small number really.”
  • Growing up in Bruce's shadow wasn't always easy for the younger Lee. As a child, Brandon was about to sign up with a local martial-arts studio...until he noticed a large poster of his dad on the wall; Brandon ran from the dojo in tears. Later, as a teenager, he dropped out of two different high-schools (once, after an "altercation" with the vice-principal).
  • Killed while filming the movie The Crow (1994) by a projectile shot from a gun firing blanks.
  • Was Eurasian like current actors Andrew Johnston, Keanu Reeves, Rob Schneider, Russell Wong, Michael Wong and actresses Jessica Anderson, Devon Aoki, China Chow, Kelly Hu, Traycee King, Kristin Kreuk, Jaymee Ong,Maggie Q and Monica Young.
  • Mother is Linda Lee Cadwell
  • He was a troubled youngster but an outstanding surrogate-parent. When his actress-sister Shannon Lee and a friend were arrested for underage- joyriding in their mom's car, Brandon sat her down and gave her a classic "It's Okay To Have Fun But Don't Ever Take It Too Far" lecture. Indeed, Shannon claims that if Brandon had lived to see her wedding day, he would have walked her down the aisle.
