The death of the actor Michael Massee is confirmed by his agent for the Hollywood Reporter publication. Massee was the one who shot with the gun accidentally loaded with real bullets (and not with blind bullets as it was supposed to), putting an end to the life of Brandon Lee, on March 31, when the actor was 28 years. The film directed by Alex Proyas was launched on the screens in May 1994 and it was a huge success. Michael Massee, the one who played the role of the enemy Funboy, had to shoot Brandon with a Magnum 44, but the angle from which the action had to be reproduced gave the impression that he was hit.

The actor who played in over 80 movies and television series in his entire career had secondary roles in movies such as ‘Seven’, ‘The Game’, ‘Lost Kings’, ‘Catwoman’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′.’I regret his death very much’ (Massee), wrote Angie Harmon, the actress from the ‘Rizzoli & Isles’ series on her official Twitter account. ‘He had a huge talent and a warm heart. It was a privilege to know him’, added the actress. Michael Massee was married and had two children.
