Brandon Lee, also known as Brandon Bruce Lee, was an American famous actor, martial artist, and fight choreographer. In the early 1990s, he became the new leader of the action. At theatrical release in 1994, Brandon landed his breakthrough role in a film called The Crow, which, like Eric Draven, was a dark fantasy genre. However, his role was cut short and his career ended after his fatal death during a production of The Crow.
Brandon Lee is the son of Bruce Lee, a famous martial artist and actor. Brandon’s father died when he was eight years old. Brandon followed his own professional path, like his father, and trained in martial arts. He received his acting education from Emerson College and the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute.
Brandon started his career by starring in many famous films. He appeared in the 1986 Hong Kong action film Legacy of Fury and the 1989 film Laser Mission. Brandon appeared in two spin-offs of the 1970s kung fu series. One was the 1986 Kung Fu Movie TV movie, and the other was the 1987 Kung Fu Next Generation pilot.
But in 1991, Brandon made the transition and opted for Hollywood productions. He appeared in Showdown in Little Tokyo, a movie about Warner Bros. buddy cops where Dolph Lundgren was her partner. However, from the very beginning it was not well received by the public, and even the critics were unhappy with the film. However, it later proved to be a cult film. After that, in 1992, Brandon starred in the film “Rapid Fire” as the lead actor of the company “20th Century Fox”. However, the film was not well received. But Lee’s presence and performance on screen received critical acclaim.
Prior to the fatal incident with Raven, Brandon filmed almost all of his scenes. But after that, he was wounded on the set with a fake gun. He was praised for his acting, and the film received critical acclaim and commercial success. There are similarities to his father due to his career as in both cases they died shortly before the release of their landmark film.
