14 Aug – Veteran actress Lily Leung has recently passed away.

As reported on Mingpao, news of her passing was announced on 13 August by the actress' grandson Nicholas Yuen (pictured above with Lily), who shared that she passed away in hospital accompanied by her family.

"I would like to thank the medical staff for their careful care. I am also grateful for all the love shown to Lily for many years," said Nicholas.

Born in January 1929, Lily started her career as a news reporter in 1957, before transferring to TVB in the '70s to focus on a career as an actress.

She is most remembered for her roles in dramas like "A Kindred Spirit", "Sisters of Pearl", and "A Fist Within Four Walls". The actress still has series that have yet to be aired, including the Miriam Yeung-starrer, "Wonder Women".

She was 90.
