John Saxon has been in the film industry for a very long time. He was a teen idol after his role in the movie Rock, Pretty Baby in 1956. This was his break out role that cemented his position in the industry. By 1958 he was receiving 3,000 fan letters a week, which was a bucket load back then.
Sadly Saxon died Saturday July 25, 2020 at the young age of 83. Saxon died of pneumonia in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, as it has been announced by his wife Gloria. Saxon has a son, Antonio.
Let's get to his action side. He was an avid martial arts student and trained in Judo and Shotokan Karate, which is a traditional Okinawan style.He was known for his rugged good looks and charm, which made him a natural fit to play the play boy American in Bruce Lees "Enter The Dragon".
