Video: A Scene from David Mamet’s “Edmond” with Brandon Lee and me
While digging up memorabilia to write my post Remembering Former Love Brandon Lee 20 Years After His Death on the set of The Crow and my book Smash, Crash and Burn: Tales From the Edge of Celebrity I came across 23-year old footage of scene work I did with former beau Brandon Lee, perhaps best known for being Bruce Lee’s son and the young actor who tragically perished on the set of The Crow.
I managed to salvage some of the footage and am posting it here as an archive for myself, but also for Brandon’s remaining loyal fans.
Warning: There’s some awkward acting (we somehow managed to find every shadow in Brandon’s house and chose to act there), there’s a bare chest (but it’s mostly not mine), there’s bad lighting, terrible sound and it’s “guerrilla shooting” in the least exotic meaning of the term.
But we’re young, earnest and trying really hard to be artists. Caveats in place …
