“I have to say no, I’m not his reincarnation. I’m his double. I was born with this face, with this body and with this talent. I have used my appearance to my advantage throughout my career as a stuntman and actor. I’m grateful for the resemblance to Bronson and I’m very proud to be his double. Charles Bronson always was and will always be my favorite actor.”
Robert Bronzi never got to actually meet Charles Bronson before his death. About taking on a career as a Bronson look alike, he had this to say about the choice.
“Pretty much my whole life when I was a young man I started to cut my hair and moustache like Bronson. Many years ago in Hungary I worked as a horse breeder and horse trainer. At the horse breeding center we had a lot of visitors every day, people told me “hey boy ! you know you look like Charles Bronson? ” I worked with my very good friend Peter, he would always say that I looked like him, and he began to call me Bronzi. So he gave me my nickname. After that everyone called me Bronzi and it become my artist name.”
You can check out Robert Bronzi in the trailer for Cry Havoc, which definitely has the potential to launch a new horror franchise. We also have the poster art for the movie, which images what it would have been like to have an 80s style slasher movie that actually starred the iconic Charles Bronson.
