Godfrey Gao Knew How To Make Pandan Cake And His Nickname In School Was GoddyGodfrey
We revisit 8 Days’ 2015 interview with the star, who tragically passed away today (Nov 27).
We’re still reeling from the shock that Taiwanese actor Godfrey Gao has passed away. The 35-year-old died of a heart attack this morning after collapsing on the set of Chinese game show Chase Me. The popular model-turned-actor was known for his dashing good looks, his good manners and for being a total dreamboat. The first time we met and spoke to Godfrey was in 2015 when he was in town as a guest DJ (yes, he spins too) for a fashion party. We were taken aback not just by how he had towered over us — at 1.96m, he was easily the tallest and most handsome guy in any room — but also at how polite, accommodating and approachable he was. And our hearts are crushed just knowing that he's not around anymore.
Here’s the interview from May 28, 2015 that 8 DAYS did with him, where we also tested the star’s knowledge of Singapore by showing him pics of iconic Singaporean things.
