5 Jan – Celebrity friends of late actress Lee Heung Kam have recently expressed their sadness over news of her death, as reported on Mingpao.
Liza Wang, who was approached by the media when she was in Central earlier, stated that she had collaborated with Lee in several shows in the past, including "Enjoy Yourself Tonight" as well as "A House Is Not a Home" in 1977, but that they have rarely seen each other in recent years.
"I hope her family is doing okay. I missed her so much," she said.
Actor Bowie Wu, who was friends with Lee for decades, stated that he didn't have the chance to see Lee prior to her passing as the actress was suffering from dementia and did not recognise people.
"When she was still in good health, we would meet once every two weeks to drink tea together. She was so happy and always treated me well," he said.
Actor-producer Raymond Wong, who had worked with Lee in films like "The Eighth Happiness" and "All's Well, Ends Well", stated that he had always thought about the actress every time he made a Lunar New Year movie.
"I visited her with Louis Koo when I heard about her health problems earlier. It's sad that she is gone now," he expressed.
On the other hand, TVB producer Mui Siu Ching stated that she was fortunate to be among the few who got to work with Lee prior to her retirement in 2012 through "Can't Buy Me Love".
"She was a really good senior and a dedicated performer," she added.
Lee passed away on 4 January. She was 88.
