When Apple Daily contacted actor and president of the Federation of Hong Kong Filmmakers Tin Kai Man, he said Lam Chung’s death was very sudden.
“He had a heart attack at 10pm and passed away. Lam Chung settled in Zhanjiang in 2010 and we rarely kept in touch in recent years. I wasn’t aware that he had any illness, so [it was a shock] when someone notified me of his death," said Kai Man.
