Tuki Brando's mother, Cheyenne Brando, was the daughter of Marlon Brando and his third wife, Tarita Teriipaia, a Tahitian whom he met while filming Mutiny on the Bounty in 1962. His father, Dag Drollet, was killed by his uncle Christian in 1990, before Tuki was born. Cheyenne Brando, suffering from alcohol and drug abuse was committed to a hospital and diagnosed with schizophrenia shortly after Tuki's birth. She committed suicide in 1995, by hanging herself in her mother's home. Tuki was subsequently raised in Tahiti by his grandmother Teriipaia.

Despite seeing his grandfather regularly while growing up, 13-year-old Tuki Brando was omitted from the elder Brando's will, estimated to be worth over US$22 million. Brando's will did include Teriipaia, friends, and nine of his at least sixteen children.

Modeling career

Brando came to modeling when a family friend suggested him to a modeling agent. His first job was in 2006, when photographer Bruce Weber shot Brando for L’Uomo Vogue, the Italian men's version of Vogue: the magazine's cover and a 22-page spread inside. Photographer Mario Testino spotted Brando in Milan, Italy, and he quickly gained attention in the fashion world. Soon after, at 17, he was named the face of the 2007 Versace Fall men's campaign.

Personal life

Despite his time spent away from home, Brando says he still lives in Tahiti most of the year with Teriipaia. Of acting he said, "Acting is my grandfather and modelling is me. Even if I wanted to, it would be too hard for me. People would say, 'Ah, he's not as good as his grandfather'. I want to do something different."
