Who is Marlon Brando?

Marlon Brando was a legendary actor whose career saw many ups and downs. His rise to fame started in 1940's and 50's with movies A Streetcar Named Desire and On the Waterfront. The latter got him his first Academy Award. Devoted acting, incredible style, and charm quickly made him one of the most influential people in Hollywood.

His career began to fade away because of many controversies that surrounded him, mainly due to his unhealthy lifestyle. However, in 1972, Brando played his most famous role of Don Vito Corleone in Coppola's The Godfather. He is remembered as one of the greatest method actors in the history of film.

Tuki is not the typical descendant of a celebrity

Despite what one might expect for someone carrying the surname Brando, Tuki did not have an easy life. He is the grandchild of Marlon and his third wife Tarita Teriipaia. The couple had a daughter, Tuki's mother, but she committed suicide aged 25. Tuki's father, Dag Drollet, was killed by Cristian Brando in 1990 before he was even born. 

Tuki's grandmother raised him but without the help of Marlon Brando. They were so estranged that Tuki wasn't even mentioned in the actor's will. 

Despite everything that has happened to him, Tuki grew up to be a successful model. Today, he is the face of Versace brand. He started his career at the age of 16 and quickly got recognized in the fashion world. Even though he got his adorable looks, Tuki doesn't wish to pursue an acting career like his grandfather.

The similarities between a grandson and his grandfather

Firstly, we must state the obvious - both of them are so handsome that it simply makes our jaw drop. Besides inheriting the beautiful shape of the eyes and nose, Tuki also got the amazing hair that lets him change style like he wants.
