After seeing Jaws on the cinema screen today, I decided to see what happened to the Brody children (or rather the actors who played them in the 1975 film)
It came as a shock to me that Chris Rebello who played Michael Brody sadly passed away November 30th year 2000, aged 37 after spending time being a landscaper, marrying, and becoming a Father of three.
Rebello was a native of Martha’s Vineyard, where “Jaws” was shot. He stayed on the island and was an assistant coach for the Martha’s Vineyard High varsity football team at the time of his death.
November 30th 2000 saw Chris falling ill deer hunting with friends in Aquinnah on Martha’s Vineyard when he collapsed and suffered a fatal heart attack.
Jay Mello who played the youngest Brody (Sean) was given a probation on a lewd act charge, after being accused by a nine-year-old girl. This was in 2009.
And in 2010 he continued to work as a janitor at Lyndon State College, Vermont. That was until ‘underage kids’, who were at the college on a special programme, found him acting ‘creepy’. And was jailed for violation of probation.
