After the birth of her son Bruce said Brandon - "the only blond-haired, blue-eyed Chinese in California," apparently because he really only remotely similar to his father. However, in another it was though not an exact copy, but "approximate option" young Bruce. For five years, Brandon was able to walk on his hands and took out a jump to his father's chin.

At 8 years old Brandon lost his father and started a completely different life. Several times it is expelled from school for bad behavior, but actually it was not such a bully and liked to play chess, poker and ping pong, and loved to read. All this is backed up by Brandon's love of the theater and music.
