Bruce Lee Net Worth

Bruce Lee Net Worth $10 Million

Over four decades after his death, Bruce Lee remains an icon of martial arts cinema around the world. Born Lee Jun-fan to a Hong Kong family in San Francisco in 1940, Lee got exposed to film as a child actor in Kowloon. He began teaching martial arts during his time at the University of Washington and later got an invitation to audition for a role in Number One Son which never aired. He then landed a role to feature in The Green Hornet television series as Kato.

His role as Kato gave him immense popularity back in Hong Kong. Banking on this fame, he got his first leading role in The Big Boss in 1971 that became a smash hit in Asia. Lee then followed it up with Fist of Fury in 1972 which surpassed records set by his first movie. He formed Concord Productions Inc. and was given total control over his third film Way of the Dragon where the then karate champion Chuck Norris was introduced to movie-goers.

The Kung-fu master died of cerebral edema at the age of 32. His contribution to martial arts and film had seen him acquire an estimated wealth of $10 million at the time of his demise.
