In 1993, Brandon Lee, son of late martial artist and actor Bruce Lee, was shot in the abdomen with improperly-made dummy rounds on the set of The Crow.
After six hours of unsuccessful surgery, Brandon was declared dead at the age of 28. He is buried next to his father, who died aged 32.
On March 31, 2023 (April 1 in Australia), his sister, Shannon Lee, paid tribute to her brother and remembered his “too short but beautiful and important” life.
”I cannot believe it has been 30 years,” Shannon said in a video message shared to Bruce’s Twitter page.
“But here’s what I have to say: His beauty, his soul, his intelligence, his creativity is still alive with us, here with us. We are going to be finding ways to celebrate him and bring him further into the consciousness this year and every year going forward.
“Brandon, we love you. We miss you so much. And we celebrate your life today. That is what today is.
“It is a celebration of your life, which was beautiful. Too short, but beautiful and important. And we miss you. So please think of Brandon today. Join in celebrating his life.”
In the years following Brandon’s death, Shannon has advocated for gun safety measures in the film industry, notably speaking out after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot on the set of Rust in 2021.
