3 is Thordis Brandt - another affair Lee had.
Television finally connected Brandt’s voluptuous body to her speaking voice beginning with five appearances on The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.
plus bigger roles on I Spy, The Man from U.N.C.L.E
. and The Green Hornet where she began a romantic relationship with Bruce Lee.
I walked into the interview [for the Green Hornet] and the casting director asked me if I could breathe. I replied, ‘Of course, I can.” He said, ‘Okay, you’ve got the part.’
I played an older woman who was supposed to be a European actress about 35 years old and the girlfriend of Victor Jory. I had long blonde hair but they tucked it in and put this God-awful wig on me so I would look older. My agent warned me that I was Van Williams’ type. I walked onto the set and Van who was so handsome came over to say hello. I saw Bruce Lee standing off very shyly in the shadows. I walked over and introduced myself because I was really attracted to him. He told me I looked like a goddess. I was dumbstruck because Bruce was absolutely gorgeous!
Bruce Lee was very quiet and shy but could also be very aggressive if he wanted to be. He was a show-off and always wanted to flaunt his body. He had a magnetism that was indescribable. We began dating but he was married, which I didn’t know. Of course he didn’t tell me—why ruin a good thing—but when I found out I was heartbroken and stopped seeing him. Apparently, he and his wife had an ‘understanding.’
