HK actor ‘dies’ five times in a day
We’re not sure what is up with this guy, but he sure had an unusual run of bad luck.
Law Lok Lam died on five different soap operas in a 24-hour period last week, and the veteran Hong Kong actor may have set a new record for multiple “deaths” in such a short space of time.
From ABC News:
His character met a bloody end during a fight in the martial arts drama Grace Under Fire, and he vomited blood before expiring in Fate to Fate, the Sunday Morning Post reported.
In Relic of an Emissary, Law played the Ming emperor Zhu Yuanzhang, who died after an illness.
In two other shows, Police Station No. 7 and comedy Virtues of Harmony, the actor did not die on screen but his death was discussed, the paper said.
It is an emotional moment for actors when one of their characters is killed off. But despite Law’s multiple terminations, the 63-year-old soap star took the deaths in stride, saying,
“Why would dying in a drama matter? It’s not for real.”
