Charles Bronson – Biografija

Charles Bronson (Ehrenfeld, Pennsylvania, 03. novembar 1921. – Los Angeles, 30. avgust 2003.), američki glumac tatarskog porijekla, poznat po ulogama “teških momaka”, policijskih inspektora, revolveraša i osvetnika. U svojoj 50-godišnjoj karijeri ostvario je preko 150 uloga u filmovima i televizijskim serijama.

Biografija

Rodio se kao Charles Dennis Buchinsky u zloglasnom Ehrenfeldu, četvrti Pennsylvanije poznatoj po rudarima uglja. Porodica mu je bila iz Litvanije, a djece je bilo 15. Litvasko ime bilo mu je Karolis Bučinskis. Otac mu je umro kada je Charlesu bilo samo deset godina. Radio je sa starijom braćom u rudniku uglja, zarađujući dolar po toni iskopanog uglja. Porodica je bila toliko siromašna da je jednom Charles obukao sestrinu haljinu i tako otišao u školu pošto nije imao druge odjeće. Prezime Bronson, uzeo je u vrijeme senatora McCarthyja, iz straha da Buchinsky zvuči odviše ruski.

Među njegove najpoznatije filmove spadaju: Sedmorica veličanstvenih, Veliki bijeg, Bilo jednom na Divljem zapadu, Dvanaestorica žigosanih i serijal Smrtonosna želja. U vestern seriji The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters glumio je sa 12-godišnjim Kurtom Russellom. Reditelj Sergio Leone jednom je rekao da je on “najbolji glumac s kojim je ikad radio“.

Ženio se tri puta. Bolovao je od Alzheimerove bolesti. Umro je u 81. godini od upale pluća. Nadživjela ga je treća supruga Kim Weeks, troje djece, dvoje posvojčadi i dvoje unučadi. Treći posinak Jason McCallum Bronson umro je 1989. od predoziranja drogom. Za sebe je rekao da izgleda kao “komad planine odvaljen od nje dinamitom”.

Kako je izgledao kao mestik, često su mu nudili uloge ljudi takvog porijekla. U Sedmorici Veličanstvenih glumio je lika koji je pola Irac, a pola Meksikanac. Ulogu detektiva “Popeyea” Doylea, kojeg u filmu “Francuska veza ” glumi Gene Hackman, prvobitno je trebao igrati on. Takođe je trebao igrati uloge Supermana i Snakea Plisskena u Bijegu iz New Yorka, ali su te uloge dobili Kurt Russell i Christopher Reeve.
