    Default RIP: Passing of Alan Tang...memories of Days of Being Wild

    Entertainment giant Tang found dead at home

    Wednesday, March 30, 2011

    Hong Kong actor, director and producer Alan Tang Kwong-wing (鄧光榮) died last night. He was 64.

    Tang was found lying in his Mong Kok home, after suffering a suspected stroke, around 9pm.

    Tang rose to fame after starring in the Cantonese movie Student Prince in 1963, after which he went on to make 63 films.

    According to pro-democracy activists, Tang also helped wanted dissidents escape from the mainland after the June 4, 1989, crackdown in the so-called Operation Yellowbird.

    Upon graduating from the New Method College, Tang acted in films alongside Josephine Hsiao Fang-fang and in the 1960s and 1970s was often voted best male actor by movie magazines.

    After moving to Taiwan in the 1970s, he often paired with Brigitte Lin Qingxia in such films as Run Lover Run.

    In 1977, he formed production company The Wing-Scope.

    Ten years later, Tang established another company, In-Gear Film Production, working alongside his brother, producer and presenter Rover Tang, and continued to produce and act in films, establishing himself as an action star.

    Throughout the 1990s, Tang pursued a second career in the restaurant business.

    He was the godfather of actress- cum-singer Joyce Cheng Yan-yee and a close friend of her mother - the late actress Lydia Sum Din-ha.
