Wesley Snipes Workout and Training for Blade

Who would have thought that a young boy who dreamed of a career in musical theatre would become a superstar actor as a half-vampire, half-mortal, vampire-slaying man in Blade (1998). Not only did this man, Wesley Snipes, star in this film, he also starred in the sequel, Blade 2 (2002) and in the third one, Blade: Trinity (2004).

Wesley Trent Snipes was born on July 31, 1963 and grew up in South Bronx, New York City. He moved with his mother to Orlando, Florida and acted in theaters and productions around the region. He then got his first acting role in Wildcats in 1986. Some of his other films include New Jack City (1991) and Passenger 57 (1992) where he mostly played tough-guy type roles. Some of his other films include Boiling Point (1993), U.S. Marshals (1998), Down in The Delta (1998), The Art of War (2000), Chaos (2002) and Gallowwalker (2009). This 5/10’’ man was already a martial arts expert through the African-Brazilian martial art Capoeira before acting in these films and this made him even more qualified for the role all three Blade movies. He is also trained in other martial arts like Kung Fu and Karate.

His character, Blade, is a black action comic-book hero captured on film whose main purpose is to get rid of all vampire evil in the world and to avenge his mother’s death. Blade’s special abilities were all thanks to a vampire who bit his mother when he was still in her womb. He was then born with both vampire strengths and human traits. He fortunately did not acquire any vampire weaknesses, which helped his success as a vampire hunter immensely.
