The Last Dragon Cast: Where Are They Now And Will There Be A Remake?

From Taimak Guarriello to Denise Matthews, Julius Carry, Chris Murney, Leo O’Brien, and Faith Prince, among others, The Last Dragon cast members have been as unforgettable as the cult classic film. The 1985 martial arts comedy movie may not have received the most favourable reviews from critics, but many years later, it still remains a movie to be reckoned with.

So, what are the actors doing now and will there ever be a remake of The Last Dragon?

The Last Dragon Cast: Where Are They Now?

1. Taimak (Leroy Green)

Taimak Guarriello who appeared in the cult classic as Leroy Green, the lead character, has not been as up and doing as many would have hoped and expected. Nonetheless, the actor who was born in 1964 is now a martial arts champion and stuntman.

Since 2006 when he appeared in They’re Just My Friends and The System Within, he has only appeared in one movie, Fury of the fist in 2018. Nonetheless, he has also gone into film production and directing.

2. Vanity (Laura Charles)

The career of Vanity who was born Denise Katrina Matthews and who played the role of Laura Charles lasted until 1997 when she last appeared in Kiss of Death. Prior to that, she was also a musician but her music career ended even before her acting.

She became a born again Christian in the early 1990s and continued speaking in churches even into the 2010s. Unfortunately, she lost her life in 2010 following renal failure that she suffered from complications due to a 10-year crack cocaine addiction. She was 57 when she died.

3. Julius J. Carry III (Sho’nuff / The Shogun of Harlem)

Carry is yet another The Last Dragon cast member who died in his 50s. After the 1985 film, he continued acting on TV, films, and theatre until 2006 when he last appeared in the film The 12th Man, as well as the TV show, The Unit.

In 2008, he died at the age of 56, having suffered from pancreatic cancer.

Although he has continued acting in theatre, films, and on TV, Murney has maintained a pretty much very quiet life. He has been in works such as One Life to Live and as a voice actor, he has voiced both films and video games, including Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Neverwinter Nights 2.

5. Leo O’Brien (Richie Green)

After The Last Dragon was released, many would have put their money on Leo going far as an actor. Unfortunately, it was not to be. He did not appear in any significant works since the age of 14 when he took the charismatic role, apart from the 1991 film, New Jack City.

In 2011, he survived a shooting and then in 2012, he died unexpectedly at the age of 41 in his sleep. He was said to have died following the three gunshots he received a year earlier as the doctors did not patch him well.

6. Faith Prince (Angela Viracco)

Not like she has achieved a million things, but the actress and singer has done well for herself since The Last Dragon. From 2013 to 2014, she was in Annie and in 2016, she got a role in Disaster!

Her career has thus far, been decorated with a number of awards and nominations, including a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical which she won for Guys and Dolls (1992), and a New York Nightlife Award for Outstanding Musical Comedy Performer which she got for The Prince and the Showboy (2012).

7. Glen Eaton (Johnny Yu)

Just as almost all other The Last Dragon cast members, Eaton has also remained pretty much hidden through the years. Following the movie, he got to appear in a couple more in the late 1980s and 1990s and since then, he has remained pretty much unseen.

Recently, he has been found to be writing and producing short films on YouTube.

Considering how successful the film turned out to be, there have been unending talks about a remake of The Last Dragon. However, that is all it has been as for now, we are yet to see any balls rolling towards a remake of the classic film.

But then, it will not be surprising to see that a remake is later announced. Nonetheless, we may not get to see a number of the old actors in the remake because they have either lost their lives or are too old for it.
