He was only 27 years old.

Frye, 46 said that she found so many voicemails Jonathan had left her when we were children. She told People Magazine about how she went through old video and diaries to research the documentary.

“Some of them were ten minutes long, his innermost thoughts. They made me weep listening to them. He was a true friend.”

Frye, who was part of the same Hollywood young actors circle in the 1990s felt guilty for not realising Brandis’ struggles.

“How often do you really look at your partner and say, ‘How’? Listen to what another person is saying. “I realized that I wasn’t listening as well as I should.

He was the only child Greg and Mary Brandis, who encouraged their son to pursue modeling and commercial work when he was nine years old.

After playing a variety of roles on TV shows like The Wonder Years or Who’s The Boss?, Brandis was cast as Bastian Bux in The NeverEnding Story II – The Next Chapter.

In 1995, Brandis began dating Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Tatyana Ali. Brandis was quoted by People Magazine 1996 as saying that he loves Tatyana Ali tremendously in an interview. After three years of being together, Brandis and Brandis split in 1998.

Brandis was reputed to have enjoy a fame that is normally reserve for rock stars at the height of his fame.

Rolling Stone Magazine says, “He became an instant hero, receiving thousands upon thousands of fan mails and causing public pandemonium that nearly resembled Beatlemania.”

According to OC Weekly, “Three security officers had to escort he through the screaming girls that staked out SeaQuest at Universal Studios in Orlando. The editor of Tiger Beat put his on the cover eight of twelve issues.”

Brandis stated, “I have never seen myself as this – a teen magazine child.” “As an actor, it is your hope to keep working.”

Brandis lost his roles. He was hopeful of a return in Hart’s War, a blockbuster starring Bruce Willis, Colin Farrell, but almost all of his scenes were cut. OC Weekly described Brandis as “depressed.”

Brandis was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment one year after Hart’s War was released. Brandis was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center but died the next day.

Tatyana Ali, Tatyana’s ex-girlfriend, has not spoken out about his tragic death publicly. However she did ask during an interview if his meteoric rise and subsequent fall were to blame.

“When you have been featured on the covers of magazines for many years, what is your identity?” Ali said it, according to reports.

Greg Brandis, the actor’s father, speculated that his son, who is smart, polite and easygoing, may have been suffering from a mental illness.

“His death wasn’t cause by the entertainment industry. Now that I think back, I see that he was in his 20s when he began to show signs of manic depression. I wish that everyone suffering from manic depression can get help.”

“I feel like he’s looking down on me.”

LA Outfielder Draws Shohei Ohtani and Justin Bieber Comparisons | Angels News



Draws Shohei Ohtani

Draws Shohei Ohtani: Over the last couple of seasons, few MLB stars have garnered as much attention as Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels. His production and dominance on the field has not been replicated in recent history and he looks set for possibly the largest contract ever when he hits free agency.

Being an international athlete from Japan, some might say his stature grows twice as fast as the average professional athlete. He’s currently representing his home country in the World Baseball Classic and they have yet to lose an official game with him leading the charge. If he can even grow any bigger than this right now, imagine what kind of legacy his name will carry if Japan were to win this entire tournament!

Draws Shohei Ohtani

Draws Shohei Ohtani

Ohtani has long since outgrown the title of professional baseball player, and more accurately describes himself as a global icon. Despite never making the playoffs thus far in his career, opposing franchises know what to expect when they encounter him on the field.

Bieber has sold approximately 150 million records during his music career and earned 26 Billboard Music Awards. He has performed on multiple world tours across various parts of Europe, further increasing his international fame.

Whitefield’s comparison of Ohtani to Bieber is a fitting compliment, given that Ohtani has only been with the Angels since 2018 and Bieber first burst onto the pop scene in 2010.

Malaysia Denies Hong Kong Historic Asian Games Double Double in Squash



Malaysia Denies Hong Kong

After Hong Kong China upset India 2/0 to secure the women’s Asian Games Team Championship Squash title for the first time ever, Malaysia denied them a historic double by coming from behind and winning 2/1 in an exciting men’s final at Gelora Bung Karno Sports Complex in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The women’s final was a repeat of a qualifying tie 48 hours earlier in which Hong Kong, the second seeds, prevailed 2/1 over third seeds India to take pole position in Pool B.

India won the rematch in the final after pulling off an incredible upset, ousting defending champions Malaysia – led by newly-crowned ‘Greatest Player of All-Time’ Nicol David – who were seeded to take gold for a third consecutive time.

Unfortunately for the third seeds, Sunayna Kuruvilla could not reverse the outcome as she lost four games to Ho Tze-Lok before talented left-hander Annie Au secured gold for Hong Kong by defeating Indian top string Joshna Chinappa 11-3, 11-9, 11-5 in 28 minutes.

“HK team manager Rebecca Chiu expressed her pride in the girls,” who played well under pressure, adding, “I’m delighted for them and they certainly deserved this success.” Pictured above is the women’s presentation group from the 2002 Asian Games – congratulations!”

Hong Kong and Malaysia both advanced to the Jakarta men’s final unbeaten, hoping for their first-time title triumph.

At one point, it appeared a double was on the way when Yip Tsz Fung put Hong Kong ahead with four games to one over Malaysian Ivan Yuen after coming through an epic 20-18 second game.

With Malaysia on the brink of a thrilling comeback, team number one Nafiizwan Adnan (pictured above celebrating his triumph) defeated higher-ranked Max Lee 11-9, 11-7, 11-7.

Malaysia’s second string Eain Yow Ng – at 20 years old the youngest player in the squad – had never faced off against Hong Kong opponent Leo Au, the 2018 men’s individual gold medalist.

But in his biggest match yet, the young Malaysian truly came of age when he shutout Au in three games – 11-7, 11-7 and 11-4 – over 36 minutes to bring home gold for Malaysia.

“As a team,” exultant Ng (pictured above with his team-mates in the men’s presentation group) after their seventh consecutive win in the championship. “We came into this tournament knowing that we could win and it proved true for us.”

“I always felt confident that Nafiizwan would deliver a point for us and was just focused on my own game. However, I also did my homework well – doing lots of video analysis and beating the individual champion despite not playing in it!”

“I didn’t want to give up in my third Asiad without a fight. After being on the losing team twice already, I really gave it everything I had. Of course there was pressure when Ivan lost, but pressure is like dessert and that’s something that excites me!”

On Squash team finals day at Gelora Bung Karno Sports Complex, IOC President Thomas Bach was honored as guest of honor. Pictured below, Bach can be seen receiving a presentation from Asian Squash Federation President David Mui (far right).
