Ron Lester


Born - 4 August 1970, Kennesaw, Georgia, USA
Died - 17 June 2016

Short, dark-haired American actor of vast girth. At one time weighing more than 36 stone, he lost 20 stone after gastric bypass surgery. The surgery probably saved his life, but virtually ended his career. In his ultra-fat days, Lester had roles in Good Burger (1997), Varsity Blues (1999), Not Another Teen Movie (2001), and The Karate Dog (2005). Later, he made The Fat Boy Chronicles (2010, a thinly-disguised account of his own early struggles), Racing Legacy (2015) and Bomb City (2017). He died from heart, liver and kidney failure.
