It was hard during his lifetime to determine when and where actor Yul Brynner was born, simply because he changed the story in every interview; confronted with these discrepancies late in life, he replied “Ordinary mortals need but one birthday.” It was not until the publication of a biography by his son Rock, “Yul: The Man Who Would Be King,” in 1989 that many of the details of Brynner’s early life became clear(er). He often claimed to be a half-Swiss, half-Japanese named Taidje Khan or Youl Bryner, born on the island of Sakhalin; in reality he was the son of Boris Bryner, a Swiss-Mongolian engineer and inventor, and Marousia Blagavidova, the daughter of a Russian doctor. He was born in their hometown of Vladivostok, Soviet Union, on July 11, 1920, and named Yul after his grandfather Jules Bryner.

He met luminaries such as Jean Cocteau and became an apprentice at the Theatre des Mathurins.
