David Carradine said, "Why would you be afraid of death? It would be an inconvenience. I have a lot of undone things and it's bound to get in the...

... way. But, no, it doesn't scare me at all."


David Carradine (December 8, 1936 – June 3, 2009), born John Arthur Carradine, was an American actor best known for his work in the 1970s television series Kung Fu and more recently in the film Kill Bill. He appeared in more than 100 feature films and was nominated four times for a Golden Globe Award.
Carradine was born in Hollywood, California, the son of Ardanelle Abigail (née McCool; 1911-1989) and noted American actor John Carradine. He was the brother of Bruce Carradine and half-brother of Keith and Robert Carradine, as well as the uncle of Ever Carradine and Martha Plimpton. Carradine had Irish, English, Scottish, Welsh, German, Spanish, Italian, Ukrainian and Cherokee ancestry. Carradine attended Oakland Junior College and later studied drama at San Francisco State College before working as an actor on stage and in television and cinema. He changed his given name to David after starting his career.
Carradine produced and starred in several exercise videos teaching the martial arts of Tai chi and Qi Gong. He had no knowledge of martial arts prior to starring in the series Kung Fu, but developed an interest in it after this experience and became an avid practitioner.(wikipedia - imagesource.allposters.com - bestuff.com)
