2/13/18: NEW GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT!

From "The Last Dragon" Welcome Taimak to Central PA Comic Con!

Taimak grew up in New York City until he was seven years old. Coming from an interracial background (African American and Italian) his parents chose to move him, his brother and two sisters to Europe. That’s where he got his first taste of the entertainment business. At 11 years old, he had the privilege to meet legendary director and family friend Federico Fellini. Mr. Fellini took Taimak and his family on a tour of Cinecitta studios and the set of “Roma” where he also met another film legend, Vincent Minnelli. They eventually moved back to New York City where he delved deeper into martial arts training. At 18 years of age, he won the New York State kickboxing championship, and the very next year he was cast by music mogul and Motown legend Berry Gordy to play the lead role in the cult classic film “The Last Dragon”. He was Bruce Leroy, the Bruce Lee wannabe in search of “The Glow”. Taimak was quickly catapulted into Hollywood with a career that has spanned over twenty years. He’s appeared in many stage plays, including the highly successful “Roadhouse the Comedy” at the Barrow Street Theater in New York City, playing the notable role of Dalton in this zany comedy rendition of Patrick Swayze's 80’s cult classic film and the national tour of the star-studded cast of “Cheaters” to name a few. As martial arts choreographer and teacher, he had the honor of being inducted into The Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2010. He’s worked with Madonna as martial arts coordinator for her Drowned World Tour, Debbie Allen, as well as Gavin Rosedale as martial arts choreographer for his Chemicals Between Us video. Last year he finished shooting an indie comedy/martial arts film called "Enter the Fist and the Golden Fleece", Oliver Stone's son is the co-writer and lead in the film. As well as completed his directorial debut with his short film noir detective story "I've Seen Things" which world premiered at Soho International Film Festival in June and will be showcased at other film festivals around the U.S. this year. Taimak has also completed his autobiography "Taimak- The Last Dragon and is currently on a U.S tour.
