The Malaysian actress’s father passed away recently at the age of 89


Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh’s father, Datuk Yeoh Kian Teik, passed away last Wednesday at his residence in Malaysia at the age of 89. Michelle, who was filming television programme Strike Back in Hungary then, stopped all work to attend his funeral.

Calling her father “the most important man in my life”, the 52-year-old shared that he did not ask his children to follow his footsteps to become a lawyer, but gave them freedom and space.

The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star added, “The production company understood my situation and allowed me to settle my family affairs before going back to work.”
