On 13th August 2019, Hong Kong actress, Lily Leung (梁舜燕) passed away at 90 years old and was rumoured to suffer from cancer a few days ago. She joined the industry for 60 years and worked as a TV presenter in several television stations, before transforming into an actress. Lily filmed many drama and was noted for her role in TVB classic sitcom, A Kindred Spirit (真情).
Lily usually played a kind mother or granny in the series and participated in A Fist Within Four Walls (城寨英雄) drama in 2016. Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) hid Grace Wong’s (王君馨) death news from her but she had discovered it and left a letter to Ruco before going to Macau. Thus, his eyes were wet upon reading the letter and many audiences were touched by Lily’s performance.
In addition, Lily acted as Paw Hee Ching’s (鮑起靜) mother and was highly respected in The Unholy Alliance (同盟) series which gave a deep impression to the public. One scene illustrated she continued to defend Cheung Kwok Keung (張國強) who played her son and accidentally pushed her down to the staircase. Finally, Ruco revealed the truth and Lily’s professional performance even won the film producer, Jazz Boon (文偉鴻) that she was a role model to the young generation.
