10 Oct Brandon Lee
Dead: 31 March 1993
In: New Hanover Regional Medical Center, South 17th Street, Wilmington, Carolina del Nord, Stati Uniti
He was an American actor and martial artist.
He was the first child of martial artist and actor Bruce Lee and teacher Linda Lee Cadwell (née Emery), the grandson of Cantonese opera singer Lee Hoi-chuen, and brother of Shannon Lee.
In 1992, he landed his breakthrough role as Eric Draven in Alex Proyas' The Crow, based on the comic book of the same name, which would be his final film.
On March 31, 1993, only days away from completing the film, Lee died during surgery after being shot on the set of The Crow by a prop gun that fired the tip of a dummy round that was accidentally lodged in the chamber.
The film was completed by re-writing the script, CGI, and stunt doubles, and released one year after Lee's death to critical and commercial success. It is now considered a cult classic.
