This Kid Actor Is Grown Now But See WHY He & His FAMOUS Friend Were SHOT!
Many of you probably recognize this former kid actor, Brandon Quintin Adams. He’s 36 years old now but we, Old Schoolers, probably best remember him as the kid who played mini MJ in Michael Jackson’s “Moonwalk” musical/movie back in the day and also for his various roles in TV shows like “A Different World,” “Moesha,” “Sister, Sister,” “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and others. Unfortunately he and his best friend (who was also famous actor) were shot, resulting in the death of his friend. Details below…
BRANDON QUINTIN ADAMS: "I WAS DEVASTATED...FOR A LONG TIME"
It took Brandon years to learn to cope with the death of his best friend, Merlin Santana, after watching him die right there in front of him. Brandon doesn't speak publicly too much about that horrific night, but he revealed this to Jet Magazine:
“It was devastating. It took me a long time to recover from that. (Merlin) was my best friend, and (the murder) was a senseless thing.[...] Brandon said he was the one friend of his who "could’ve had anything that I had.”
