Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 Brandon Lee was killed by a wad from a blank pistol. In a scene from Bruce Lee's 1978 film, "Game of Death," a prop man handling out blanks to some actors says,"These are blanks....There's a wad of paper that comes out and can injure someone.".
2 The manner of his death is as follows: Michael Massee, the actor portraying Funboy, was required to fire a .44 magnum revolver loaded with blanks at Lee. The revolver had been inspected days earlier for a previously filmed scene in which it was not fired but needed to be seen loaded. Dummy rounds are used for this, which have a bullet, a spent primer, but no powder. One of the dummy rounds had a bullet, a live primer, and no powder. When test-fired, the primer propelled the bullet into the barrel, where it stopped. The gun was then rechecked, but no anomalies were found because the primer was now spent and the barrel was not inspected. Then, when filming the fateful scene days later, the same gun was used with blanks. Blanks are fully charged rounds with no bullets, but there was a bullet in the barrel. The blank round propelled it into Lee's abdomen just as if he had been shot with a live .44 magnum round. Michael Massee spent a year, devastated by what happened, deciding whether or not to return to acting.
3 Was trained in Wing Chun, Shaolin Kung-Fu, Muay Thai & Jeet Kune Do.
4 He was offered the chance to play his dad in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993). Understandably, he turned it down so he could star in The Crow (1994). The film was later dedicated to his memory.
5 He was originally cast as Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat (1995), but died before production began.
6 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.
7 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).
8 Grandson of actor Hoi-Chuen Lee.
9 Nephew of Robert Lee
10 The apple never falls far from the tree: Brandon played the character "Jake Lo" in Rapid Fire (1992); his father Bruce Lee played the character "Billy Lo" in Game of Death (1978).
11 Brandon's father was of Chinese, and some European (usually described as German), descent. Brandon's mother, who is caucasian, has English, Irish, Norwegian, Swedish, and Dutch ancestry. Brandon was born with blond hair. As he aged, his hair color changed to brown.
12 Dedication at the end of Lee's last film, The Crow (1994), reads "For Brandon and Eliza (Hutton)".
13 Was to be married to Eliza Hutton in Mexico on April 17, 1993.
14 Was in talks with filmmakers about making Rapid Fire 2.
15 Was first asked to play the role of Bruce Lee in his father's biopic. The role was later given to Jason Scott Lee.
16 His Chinese star sign is the Dragon. He was born on Chinese New Year's eve, last day of the dragon.
17 Interred at Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, Washington, USA.
18 Older brother of Shannon Lee.
19 At the time of his death, was engaged to Eliza Hutton.
20 Spoke Cantonese.
21 Lived in Hong Kong for a couple of years as a little boy.

Quotes

#Quote
1 [on why moving on after grief is important to realize your own dreams and purpose] Sometimes a personal tragedy provides the impetus we need to move on in life. It's easy to become stuck. We get lazy and we don't want to change. Change can be such a hassle. That's not to say that everyone requires a tragedy in their lives in order to get their ass moving, to take some kind of action or make some kind of decision: but if it happens, it can be definitely open your eyes. It can make you look at life differently, it can change your whole world, 'Why did this have to happen? What have I done? Why couldn't it have been somebody else?' Sometimes it can make you a better person, Or a different person.
2 [About Eric Draven] He has something he has to do and he is forced to put aside his own pain long enough to go do what he has to do."
3 All I can tell you is that you cannot make choices in your own career, either career choices or choices when you're actually working as an actor, based on trying to downplay or live up to a comparison with somebody else. You just can't do that. You have to do your own work based on your own gut, your own instincts, and your own life.
4 You only have the burdens on you that you choose to put there.
5 "It's funny, [...] for that sequence the director just said, say something insulting to him, it doesn't matter what. So I said something pretty insulting, and they didn't subtitle it, and they never asked me what it meant. [..] (Laughter)" (on the insult he says in Cantonese in Rapid Fire (1992))
6 A fight can express things people might not be able to say with words.
7 "It's such an intensely personal thing for me.. I'd probably have been a little too crazy" (On why he refused the role in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993)).
8 "It's either in the genes, or I watched too many of his movies as a kid" (on why his film roles echo those of his dad)
9 "The trip reinforced my suspicions that, despite my Pacific Rim heritage, I'm about as American as you get." (explaining that he feels no particular affinity for Asia and does not want to live there)
10 "I don't know if I was destined to play this role, but I feel very fortunate to be doing so." (on his last film, The Crow (1994)).
11 I've done my work and I'm happy with it...I respect my father very much, but I'm a very different person than he was.
12 [About The Crow (1994)] "I've done other films with violence in them, but I must say I've never done anything where I felt the violence was as justified as it is in this...This is justice".
13 [About The Crow (1994)] "It's a story about justice for victims".
14 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. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you cannot conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.
15 I always had a pretty good knack for raising hell.
16 I don't want to be remembered as the son of Bruce Lee.
