Lydia Shum passed away at the age of 62 yesterday at Hong Kong’s Queen Mary Hospital from a long fight against liver cancer. Lydia Shum was a veteran in TVB history since the 70′s. She was affectionately known by her nicknames “Fei Fei” and “Fei Je” for her big figure (‘fei’ is the Cantonese pronunciation for ‘fat’; ‘je’ is ‘elder sister’) and iconic cheerful disposition. Lydia Shum did not appear much in TVB dramas (or any that I recall) but was prominent in many TVB shows and events as hostess and entertainer. She was loved for her laughter and happy personality and dearly missed already.
