Let me in...I'm Brando's lovechild; Hogan's Heroes star's girl in row: showdown at mansion.
A WOMAN claiming to be Marlon Brando's love child arrived at the screen legend's Los Angeles mansion demanding to be let in just hours after his death.
Lisa Warmer had a showdown with security guards as she tried to enter the estate, off Mulholland Drive.
She arrived just after news broke of Brando's death in a LA hospital believed to have been caused by lung failure. Meanwhile, fans of the star left a single rose tribute to him at the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Warmer claimed she was the star's illegitimate daughter following a fling he had with her mother, Hogan's Heroes actress Cynthia Lynn.
She told police she wanted to be let inside the gated compound to be near her family to mourn.
When police told her to check with security, she rang the intercom on the gate and demanded to be let in, telling them: 'I'm Marlon Brando's daughter, you have to let me in. I need to be with my brother Christian.'
But Brando's troubled son Christian was not inside and security officers refused to let her in.
Warmer jumped in her car and drove off but returned two hours later with her mother Cynthia.
Both of them began crying as they once again tried to gain entrance to Brando's home and were again refused. Lisa said: 'Marlon Brando is my father. I found out about him six years ago when my mother told me and since then I have been trying to meet him.
'He was always too ill to see me and I never got the chance to see him.
'He had an affair with my mother when they appeared in a movie together called Bedtime Story in 1964.
'It is sad that I never got to meet him but I just want to be with Marlon's family now so I can get some closure.' Brando, the star of films such as A Streetcar Named Desire, officially had nine children through three different marriages but it is believed he may have as many as 20.
Although the actor is believed to have died penniless, his estate will be divided among his surviving family.
Friends fear a procession of people claiming to have been fathered by Brando will now come forward.
