Check This Out: Jean-Claude Van Damme's Daughter Is Also Incredibly Badass

Check This Out: Jean-Claude Van Damme's Daughter Is Also Incredibly Badass

May 11, 2016

Bianca Van Damme may not be a household name, but she's been kicking ass (online and off) for a few years now. Her YouTube videos rack up hundreds of thousands of views, and her martial arts skillset (not to mention famous last name) has landed her a few roles opposite dad Jean-Claude in some of his lesser-seen movies. 

 

Now it seems she's trying to make a bigger go at the whole action-movie thing with a spread in the NY Post and a few upcoming low-budget films. “I want to show little girls and little boys that you can be physical and feminine," she tells the Post. "That you can cross your legs at the dinner table and then kick ass in a nice, feminine way.”

Her message is great -- and we definitely need more women kicking ass on the big screen -- but Van Damme also seems caught in that weird space between wanting to continue the Van Damme legacy while also wanting to be known for being someone other than "Van Damme's daughter."

“I always have people coming up and telling me how much they love my dad. It’s nice to hear, but it’s like…what does that have to do with me?” she bemoans. 

For now, she'll have to hope for big things from films like Paranormal Activity Security Squad, which looks like a cross between a Ghostbusters ripoff and a nod to the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad from Pulp Fiction.

Check out the trailer below.

Next, how about a Kickboxer reboot with Bianca in the lead?
