Biography

Strikingly handsome Asian-American actor was the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee and a Swedish-American mother. Lee began performing in regional theater while still in high school. After studying theater in college, Lee received his first break when cast in "Kung Fu: The Movie" (1986), the TV revival of the popular ABC series of the 1970s. He portrayed an assassin on the trail of David Carradine's Cain. (Ironically, the role of Cain was originally conceived for Bruce Lee.) Lee made his feature debut that same year in "Legacy of Rage", a Hong Kong-produced action movie shot entirely in Cantonese. He went on to play the wisecracking sidekick of Dolph Lundgren in "Showdown in Little Tokyo" (1991). 1992 marked the beginning of his brief career as a Hollywood lead with the modest action film "Rapid Fire". Determined not to be just an action star, Lee chose to star in the dark melodrama "The Crow" (1993). His life came to a tragic end when he was accidentally shot during filming.
