"Listen, idiot. If I was a Piccolo, whatever that is, I wouldn't tell you. And if I did kill your grandfather, I would have shot you by now."
Dragonball: Evolution

Bulma Brief (ブルマ, Burumā) is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. She makes her debut in the 2009 film Dragonball: Evolution, the first of a purported three installments of 20th Century Fox's live-action film series. She is an adaptation of Bulma, the second-longest running protagonist of Akira Toriyama's franchise, and is portrayed by Emmy Rossum.


Bulma Brief aids Goku after her father's Dragon Ball is stolen by Piccolo. Along the way, she becomes romantically involved with the desert bandit Yamcha and develops an annoyance towards Roshi.

Actor's insight

  • "For me, Bulma is an intellectual scientist and a strong woman. I knew [Dragon Ball] a little because the animation aired in the mornings on the weekend in the U.S. However, when I got this role, I wanted to know her more so I studied by seeing the anime again and reading the comic."[1]
  • "I'm really enjoying getting to know Joon Park. I'm not allowed to spill any secrets, but our characters interact a lot in the film. If you don't know a lot about Joon, in addition to being an actor, he has a massively successful band in Korea (he writes a lot of the music) and is also a great dancer. Not only is Joon very cute and extremely charming, he's gracious and very down to Earth. We've been trading music, giving each other some of our favorite stuff; he happens to love classic rock. Because everyone's taste in music is so personal, I've found music a very good way to get to know someone."[2]
  • "I've been riding the motorcycle in 4-foot sand drifts since sunrise to get the shot just right. The wonderful, kind and talented Chow Yun Fat is hanging on for dear life in back. We've been doing about 40mph, and over bumpy sand dunes that is enough to make anyone a little queasy. Chow is so kind, so calm and a bit of a prankster (which I love!) and he hasn't complained once. The sand is pretty deep here, and we've had to dig the bike out a few times when it has stalled in the drifts, but the crew and stunt guys and girls are so helpful."[3]
