HONG Kong veteran actor Elliot Ngok Wah passed away in Canada on Saturday, China Press reported.

The 76-year-old actor is survived by his actress wife, Tanny Tien Lie and their daughter, Faye.

The late actor started his acting career in 1965 under Shaw Bro-thers.

In 1966, he became famous because of his character in the martial arts film Come Drink With Me, co-starring Cheng Pei-Pei and the late Chan Hung-Lit.

In the 90s, Ngok and his family migrated to Vancouver, Canada, and only returned to Hong Kong in 2007 to act in a few TVB dramas.

His best known work with TVB includes Looking Back in Anger in 1988, The Gem of Life in 2008, and Rosy Business in 2009.

His last TVB drama was Captain of Destiny, which was filmed in 2015.

Ngok’s best friend Cheung Chi-Kok said his sister got a message from Tien on Sunday morning, informing her about Ngok’s passing.

“Ngok and my sister are very close and I’m also very close to his daughter. I feel very sad upon hearing the news,” Cheung said.

> According to Oriental Daily, citizens donated money to an Australian woman, Lucy Wieland, who shared her journey on “battling ovarian cancer” through Instagram.

She also said that she is undergoing chemotherapy and had her head shaved.

The woman talked about her feelings during the session, captioned “Being tired had become a daily problem, but I am still grateful for the people who had supported me”.

In her “GoFundMe” account, she managed to raise A$55,000 (RM160,000) until a citizen sensed something fishy in her Instagram posts and reported to the authorities.

The Instagram account has since been deleted.
