Kenneth Tsang: For Hong Kongers and fans of Cantonese cinema, Tsang is a popular name.

Hong Kong:

Kenneth Tsang, a supporter of the “Golden Age” of Cantonese cinema, was found dead in a Hong Kong hotel room on Wednesday while undergoing mandatory quarantine after returning from abroad, local media reported.

Tsang, 87, was found by staff at a quarantine hotel two days after returning from Singapore, several branches including Now News, South China Morning Post and Oriental Daily said.

In an incident report, police said they were informed a “body” had been found by hotel staff around noon (0400 GMT).

The deceased was an 87 -year -old man named Tsang, incident reports said.

For Hong Kongers and fans of Cantonese cinema, Tsang is known for a career spanning six decades with more than 200 acting credits listed in the IMDB film database.

She was also the face of the Hong Kong hair dye brand for four decades.

While he began acting in earnest in the 1960s, many of his most memorable roles came during the golden period of Hong Kong cinema in the 1980s and 1990s with films such as The Killer, Supercop, Peking Opera Blues and Once A Thief.

He was also one of the few Hong Kong stars of that era to cross over to Hollywood with supporting roles, mostly villains, in films such as The Replacement Killers, Die Another Day – James Bond films – Anna and The King and Memoirs of A Geisha .

In what may prove to be his last interview, Tsang told Sin Chew Daily he had completed a two -week trip to Malaysia and had flown back to Hong Kong via Singapore.

She described the pleasure of spending time traveling solo after being cared for by others for almost every previous trip in her life.

“I will quarantine if necessary,” Tsang told a Chinese-language Malaysian newspaper that posted a photo of the actor beaming while holding a piece of durian.

Like China, Hong Kong has adhered to a strict zero-Covid strategy that has kept its borders mostly closed throughout the outbreak with mandatory quarantine at hotels designated for returning residents.

For most of last year, people had to undergo a 21-day quarantine even though it has recently been reduced to seven days.

Last week Hong Kong lifted a ban on non -residents flying into the city that had been in place for two years.

However, the return of widespread tourism or frictionless business travel in the short -term future is unlikely.

Airlines only make a few routes to Hong Kong compared to before the outbreak and airlines carrying more than five cases of coronavirus face a five -day ban on those routes under current regulations.
