Born in Hollywood, California on December 8, 1936, David Carradine was best known for his leading role as Kwai Chang Caine in the series Kung Fu, as well as his more recent leading roles in the Kill Bill series. He was a well known "B" movie actor and was a four-time Golden Globe Award nominee. Carradine became active in the entertainment industry in 1947 until his death from erotic asphyxiation in 2009. He had been married five times to Donna Lee Becht, Linda Gilbert, Gail Jensen, Marina Anderson, and Annie Bierman. He had three children and four stepchildren. Due to an unstable childhood, Carradine fell into substance abuse and frequent arrests. Born as John Arthur Carradine, his rough childhood led to an eventual name change after an attempted suicide at the early age of five years old followed by a series of other family-related events. He attended Oakland High School, Oakland Junior College, and studied music and drama at San Francisco State College. He dropped out of college and was eventually drafted to the United States Army. While stationed in Virginia, he managed to help found a theater company, often recognized as the "entertainment unit." Carradine was honorably discharged after two years and the birth of his first daughter, Calista. He starred in the series Kung Fu from 1972 to 1975 for which he was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award.

He died on June 3, 2009 at the Nai Lert Park Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. He was found hanging in a closet by a rope. The death was not concluded as a suicide but as accidental erotic asphyxiation.
