Marc Gilpin, born on September 26, 1966, was the child of Wes Gilpin and Barbara Bushway. He had three siblings: April, Pattie, and Peri Gilpin. Marc Gilpin, known for his role as the younger son of Roy Scheider’s Police Chief Martin Brody in Jaws 2, has passed away at the age of 56. He lost his battle with glioblastoma in Dallas on a Saturday, as announced by his older sister, actress Peri Gilpin.

At the age of 11, Marc secured the role of Sean Brody in the 1978 sequel to the iconic film Jaws, triumphing over numerous other boys after responding to a casting call. The blockbuster movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, was a hit.

Directed by Jeannot Szwarc, Jaws 2 saw Lorraine Gary reprising her role as Chief Brody’s wife. However, their sons Michael and Sean, portrayed by Chris Rebello and Jay Mello in the original film, were replaced by Mark Gruner and Gilpin in the sequel. Gilpin later made appearances on NBC’s CHiPs and ABC’s Fantasy Island in 1980, alongside his younger sister, April. He also appeared in the films The Legend of the Lone Ranger and Earthbound in 1981.

In the 1985 ABC telefilm “Surviving,” which centered around a teenager dealing with the aftermath of his father’s affair, Gilpin shared the screen with a talented cast including veterans Ellen Burstyn, Marsha Mason, Len Cariou, Paul Sorvino, and rising stars like River Phoenix, Molly Ringwald, and Heather O’Rourke.

After gaining recognition for his work in “Surviving,” Gilpin caught the eye of manager Jerry Silverhardt during a visit to Williamstown, Massachusetts. He agreed to sign with Silverhardt, but only under the condition that his sister Peri be signed as well.

Peri Gilpin found fame through her role as Roz Doyle, the producer of Kelsey Grammer’s Frasier Crane’s radio show in the NBC comedy series “Frasier.”

His early career included booking his first national commercial for Exxon at the age of 4. He also appeared on a 1977 episode of the Saturday morning NBC series Thunder and played the lead role in the family film “Where’s Willy?” (1978) before his involvement in Jaws 2.

Beyond his acting career, Gilpin worked as a self-taught software engineer after contributing to episodes of NBC’s Silver Spoons and ABC’s China Beach and appearing in the 1989 movie “She’s Out of Control.” He was associated with a startup and earned multiple software patents while working for another company.
