After This ‘Last Dragon’ ACTOR Died Suspiciously At 41, Family Outraged
ILOSM family make some noise if you remember “Richie Green” from the 80’s cult classic film, The Last Dragon. He was the kid who nicknamed his big brother “Bruce Leroy” in the film. “Richie” was young back then, but he had more swag than some of the older kids on the block and a flip mouth to go with it, LOL.
His real name is Leo O’Brien and sadly, the joy Leo gave the world was later followed by some ups, hard times, and tragic results. He passed away at 41 years old in 2012 under very suspicious circumstances, which we’ll get into in a minute. But first we wanted to share what Leo’s life had become prior to his passing…
The Great Times
After The Last Dragon, Leo moved on with his life outside of the entertainment world for a while. He ran several unspecified businesses on the east coast and started a family.
Leo had four children- a daughter; and three sons.
His Involvement In Unfinished “Last Dragon” Remake
Later in life, he was in the process of rebuilding his acting career. Although a sequel to The Last Dragon was in the works, Leo never got to officially start the project before his death. But according to his nephew, Michael, Leo wanted his son, Drew, to play the role of “Richie.”
Unfortunately, somewhere along Lee’s journey, he ended up serving 8 years in prison for unspecified crimes.
“He’s been having a little problem. He’s been through a lot of tough times,” said his Last Dragon co-star, Taimak. “It’s unfortunate.”
After his jail stint, things took a greater turn for the worse and he ended dying as a result.
