Crow, The: Michael Massee, Who Fatally Shot Brandon Lee, Dies at 61.

Michael Massee, who accidentally fatally shot Brandon Lee on the set of their 1994 film The Crow, in which he played Funboy, has died. He was 61.

Actor Anthony Delon annouced the news in an Instagram post on Monday, writing “R.I.P. my friend Michael. You were ‘five seconds away from a clean getaway.’” He and Delon worked together on the 2014 French TV series “Interventions.”

Massee fired the improperly prepared prop gun that killed Lee on the set of the film in 1993. Lee, the son of martial arts star Bruce Lee, died in surgery on March 31, 1993. He was 28.

The Crow, directed by Alex Proyas, was released in May 1994.

Massee, who reportedly never watched “The Crow,” returned to New York following the traumatic accident and took time off from acting. “I don’t think you ever get over something like that,” he said in a 2005 interview.

The actor is also known for his role as the man at the massage parlor in David Fincher’s 1995 thriller “Seven.” He also worked with the director in 1997 on “The Game” and “Lost Highway.” His other film credits include “Catwoman” (2004), “The Amazing Spider-Man” (2012) and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” (2014), in which he portrayed “The Gentleman” Gustav Fiers.

On TV, Massee had recurring roles as villain Ira Gaines on the first season of the Fox’s “24” and TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles,” in addition to making appearances in “The X-Files,” “Alias,” “Supernatural,” “House,” and “The Blacklist.”
