George Jung is a former drug trafficker and smuggler from the ’70s and ’80s. At one point, Jung was probably the most wanted man in America. Today, we are going to discuss in details about his daughter, Kristina Sunshine.
She had a hard time growing up, and who wouldn’t, especially given her parents’ choice of profession back then. We will talk about her early life, career, marriage life, net worth, and the children she has.
Who is Kristina Sunshine Jug?
Kristina Sunshine Jung is an actress with a quite unusual claim to fame. She is the daughter of a very well-known Drug Dealer. Kristina was further catapulted into Hollywood after her debut in the movie, Blow. It covers her father’s story.
Kristina did not have the best childhood. When she was little, her mother was a drug addict while her father was a drug dealer. Imagine growing up in that environment. When both her parents were arrested, Kristina’s grandparents, Ermine and Fredrick Jung raised her. Unfortunately, her grandfather passed away, forcing her to move in with her aunt.
Her relationship with her parents is not clear. However, there were rumors that she reunited with her father in 2002.
How old is she? Date of Birth.
Kristina Sunshine Jung was born on 1st August 1978 to Mirtha and George Jung. She was born and raised in Florida, United States. Even though she did not have a good childhood, she grew up to be a strong independent woman.
Kristina’s father, George Jung.
George Jung is an ex-drug trafficker from the ’80s. He was born on 6th August 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts. His parents were Fredrick and Ermine Jung. The cartel member was caught several times and has been in and out of prison just as much. It made it almost impossible for him to witness his daughter growing up.
As you might have heard, he also used to be in the Medellin Cartel. The same cartel was responsible for the trafficking of tons of cocaine.
In 1994, he was arrested again. Jung was sentenced to 60 years imprisonment but was released after 20 years after his sentence was reduced. Due to his fame as an ex-convict, he had a movie and a book written about him. The book was titled ‘Recovery from the blow: Behind the scenes of the movie Blow.’
Kristina Jung’s career info.
In as far as Kristina’s acting career is concerned, we learned that she has worked with renowned actors such as Jonny Depp, who notably played the role of her father, George Jung. The movie was deleted from history after a government-issued order.
Presently, George Jung’s daughter Kristina Sunshine Jung has her own business with her father. They run a clothing line called BG Apparel and Merchandise. Don’t be so shocked. Her father was released in 2014. Starting a business with her father was kind of a good way for him to make up for all the years he missed being a parent and watching her grow up.
She is also a writer and poet. Kristina has not published any book yet. We are hoping that she will someday.
