Marion Frederick Johnson III, also known as Bravo Kilo, was born on April 3, 1981, in Landstuhl, Germany. His parents were Marion Frederick Johnson Jr., of Irish descent, and Donna Marie Menicucci, of Italian descent. Marion’s mother passed away when he was three. His father was in the military so he spent much of his childhood being moved from place to place, including living in Florida and Virginia and spending time with his Italian aunt in Rhode Island.
From a very early age Marion has had an interest in music and the arts. In grade school he acted in school plays, being selected for the lead role of Romeo in Romeo and Juliet, Colin in The Secret Garden, as well as lead in the school’s own production and supporting roles in numerous other productions. He also performed in rodeos and played numerous sports. Marion has been playing guitar for the past twenty-six years. In 1994, at the age of 14, he joined his first band in Providence, Rhode Island, RibKage. After being moved to Memphis, Tennessee, at the age of 17 (1998), he wrestled for public access television while working at Jerry “The King” Lawler’s Gym.
Immediately after 9/11, Marion heard the call to serve and enlisted in the US Army (2002). He spent the next several years and two trips to the sandbox enlisted as a M1A1 Abrams tank crewman. During his time in the military, he would receive valuable training, including but not limited to, Marksmanship, Close Quarters Combat, Precision Driving, and Hand to Hand Combat Training.
While serving Marion continued to pursue his passion for entertainment, forming the band Kanipshun (2006) while stationed in Germany. He took the band to a German-American Battle of the Bands, won and then performed before 10,000 people at the German-American Festival. In 2007 while stationed in El Paso, Texas, he would form the band Guilt Free Aggression (G.F.A). He would produce and record their first album. Over the next several years G.F.A. would open for several major touring bands, including Fuel, Breaking Benjamin, and Chevelle, and host some of the most entertaining shows in El Paso, including Summerfest 2008.
Marion was injured in the line of duty and honorably discharged. With his career path now wide open he returned full-time to entertainment. In 2010 he started the band The New Guilt. Over the next five years they would record an album Abnormal (2010), shoot a music video (2013) and go on a Hard Rock Cafe tour (2014). During this time he joined Quest Paranormal Research (2012), acting and being recorded for several shows. In 2015 Marion completed his treatment video for Missing In Action Gaming (M.I.A.), a TV show based around helping veterans cope with the stresses of PTSD.
In early 2018 Marion began preparing for his move to Los Angeles, California to launch his career as a working actor. He studied weekly with acting coach, Kent Kasper, to refine both his acting skills, and his knowledge of the internal workings of show-business. His preparation included a photo-shoot and lots of auditioning practice.
In 2019 Marion Johnson moved to Los Angeles, California. During this time he booked supporting roles in Colonials (POST) and Puff Puff Slash (TBD). He landed a recurring role in the TV series Research in Paranormal (2019). Marion also recorded a commercial for Studio City Martial Arts, showcasing his bo-staff skills. He was cast as a featured actor in Love You Later (2020). In September of 2019, Marion moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. He has been married to Sayward Coker since June 9th, 2016.
