Jean-Claude Van Damme was one of the biggest action stars of the 90s thanks to movies like Double Impact, Hard Target and Universal Soldier.
But did you know he has a daughter who’s looking to follow in his footsteps?
Bianca Brigitte Van Damme is an actress and producer who also happens to be a skilled kick-boxer, karate practitioner and all-round bad ass.
And yes, Bianca can deliver a perfect roundhouse kick to rival her old man. Don’t believe us? Watch her unleash some fury in the below video comparing Van Damme Sr and Jr’s styles.
Bianca has even starred in a bunch of he father’s movies as she seeks to make it on the silver screen.
If you’ve seen JCVD flicks 6 Bullets, UFO or Welcome to the Jungle then you’ll likely have come across Bianca.
The 25-year-old has admitted in the past that her rebellious streak occasionally puts her at odds with her father.
“It’s complicated. I always have people coming up and telling me how much they love my dad. It’s nice to hear, but it’s like…what does that have to do with me?” she told the New York Post.
“Our relationship definitely had its ups and downs, but now we’re cool. We talk and we hang out, but it’s not like I’m calling him being like, ‘Hey Dad, let’s grab a bite and talk about life.’ We’ll go to the gym and kick and stuff.”
This year she’s making another bid for film stardom thanks to roles in two movies directed by Agents of SHIELD actor Alexander Wraith: Paranormal Activity Security Squad and
Enter the Fist and the Golden Fleecing.
The former is a comedy, while the latter is an action flick, but Bianca is keen to move outside the punch ’em up genre.
“I guess I can do it, but I’m more into the dramatic genre, but I guess I can do the action part, right?” she said in an interview with HeyUGuys.
“I live on the edge, that is something I do. It’s not good though, because I’ll do anything.”
