Loren R. Avedon (born July 30, 1962) is an American martial arts film actor. He has also acted in several popular American TV shows, including Baywatch.

Biographie

He has over 28 years of martial arts experience and is a 5th Dan black belt in Tae Kwon Do and an 8th dan black belt in Hap Ki Do.

His first acting roles were as a child in TV commercials, mainly for Carnation Milk, The May Company, and other retailers. He also worked as a model, and appeared in a couple of martial arts films, such as Ninja Turf (1985), which were produced by his martial arts instructor Jun Chong.

Avedon got his main break as a martial arts film star, when producer Roy Horan phoned the dojang where Avedon was training, and asked if they had any suitable martial arts practitioners for the lead role in the film, No Retreat No Surrender 2 (1987). Avedon answered the phone, was given an audition, and won the lead role. He then signed a three film deal with Seasonal Films (the company which produced the No Retreat No Surrender films). In this three film deal Avedon also played the lead role in the films, No Retreat No Surrender 3 and King of the Kickboxers. Since then Avedon has starred in many more martial arts and action films, all of which have been B movies. In an interview Avedon said that he believed he would have had greater success in his film career (similar to the success of Jean-Claude Van Damme) if it had not been for poor representation and disagreements that he had with one or two other actors.(Lorenzo Lamas, Sherie Rose) He was offered a three film deal with film production company PM entertainment, but turned it down (the deal was given to Don 'The Dragon' Wilson) because he was holding out for a better deal. Avedon said that he now regrets turning down this deal.(True: Cannes 1991)

Avedon has also written and produced some of the films that he has starred in, such as Silent Force (2000) and Deadly Ransom (1997).
He also appeared in the hit TV show Baywatch and had a fight scene with David Hasselhoff.
He is the nephew of photographer Richard Avedon.

The film picks up where Dirk Longstreet left off in part 2. It seems like his girlfriend did not survive that coma she was put in by that film's villain, and Dirk has given up, living a nomadic lifestyle completely off the grid out of his van, searching for the next great wave to ride. He supplements this lifestyle through illegal underground fighting, which we see at the beginning. Anyway, while surfing, a young girl who was sold by her step-dad to white slavers escapes to the beach, Gruner saves her, and a bond forms. When she's captured, Gruner must fight again to save her. Of course, what he does not know is his wife is actually alive, but his off-the-grid life means no one can tell him.
