About Yul Brynner
Yul Brynner was a true Hollywood icon, known for his striking looks, commanding presence, and unforgettable performances. Born in Vladivostok, Russia in 1915, Brynner spent much of his childhood traveling with his mother, a singer and actress, before settling in Paris in the 1930s. It was there that he began his career in the arts, first as a musician and later as an actor.
Brynner's big break came in 1951, when he was cast as the King of Siam in the Broadway production of "The King and I." His performance was a sensation, earning him a Tony Award and launching him to international fame. He went on to reprise the role in the 1956 film adaptation, which earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor.
Brynner's career spanned several decades and included a wide range of roles, from the suave and sophisticated lead in "The Magnificent Seven" to the villainous robot in "Westworld." He was also a talented musician and photographer, and was known for his distinctive bald head, which he maintained throughout his life.
Despite his success, Brynner was plagued by personal demons, including a lifelong addiction to cigarettes that ultimately led to his death from lung cancer in 1985. Nevertheless, his legacy as one of Hollywood's most iconic leading men endures to this day.
