The beautiful daughter of Van Damme, following in her father’s footsteps
Everyone will be happy. Just a couple of days ago I saw a photo of Bianca Brie on the web, who is the only daughter of the famous actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.
I saw this photo and immediately a thought flashed through my head: who does she remind me of? I was thinking and thinking and then it suddenly dawned on me. Yes, it’s a young Penelope Cruz, only also very athletic.
Bianca Brie, Van Damme’s daughter
So, let’s take it in order.
The girl’s real and full name is not Bianca Brie at all, but Bianca Bridget Van Warenberg. Today she is 29 years old and she is best known for being the daughter of her famous father.
Joke. The girl is also acting in films and she already has about 15 roles, so there is a certain circle of people who know her from films. In addition, Bianca is engaged in producing and writing scripts.
Bianca Brie, Van Damme’s daughter
Let’s take a little walk through her short filmography and note right away that the girl is following in her father’s footsteps, although not as successfully as he did in the 90s. In other words, most of her roles are cool girls in action movies who are proficient in martial arts.(However, her tricks in the frame seem a little clumsy to me, not like her father’s)
It is noteworthy that in most of the films with her participation, the main role was played by Jean-Claude, which seems to hint at some difficulties in the demand for the beauty of Bianca by the directors.
He made his film debut in 2008. The beauty was invited, well, as she was invited, rather, her father brought her to the shooting of the film “Special Assignment”, in which he himself played the main role.
A couple of years later, two more films were released, in each of which the main roles again went to her father Jean-Claude. These were the paintings “Killer Games” and “Six Bullets” in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
In the same 2012, Bianca finally had a breakthrough in her career. She flew out from under her father’s wing and played her first major role. The film was called “Invasion from the outside” and told about the invasion of aliens on Earth. The project turned out to be frankly mediocre and did not bring Bree fame.
Another movie with a family contract is called “Welcome to the Jungle”. Here again, one of the main roles of the star father, and his daughter flashes in a minor role.
Two years have passed. In 2014, Jean-Claude’s career was slightly corrected with the release of the excellent action movie “Eagle Path”. His daughter also played in the tape, although the role is again secondary.
In subsequent years, the actress was not at all pleased with the roles, especially the leading ones, so I will not paint them here. Let’s wait to see what happens next, maybe a sequel to “Street Fighter” or “In Search of Adventure” will come out with her in the title role.
As the actress herself says in a few interviews, her love for martial arts did not manifest itself immediately. As a child, she seriously considered a skating career, but at some point, as it often happens, her health did not allow her to realize her dream.
So she got into the martial arts hall, which she is fond of to this day. Bianca often posts photos of workouts and their results on her Instagram, not getting tired of repeating under posts that a girl can look athletic and beautiful and not have a mountain of muscles.
It’s funny to watch how her name changes in the credits over several years of filming in a movie. At first, she was pointed out exactly as Bianca Van Warenberg, then she decided to shorten her name and appeared in the descriptions for the tapes exactly as Bianca Brie. In recent years, the girl prefers that the editors ascribe to her the pseudonym of her father, so that after the films you can notice that the beauty is filmed under the name Bianca Brie Van Damme.
Judging by these tosses, it can be assumed that at first the actress wanted to distance herself from the famous name of her father, but in the end she realized that it was either stupid or just harmful to her career.
