Hongkong actor Lee Kin Yan, best known for his cross-dressing roles in Stephen Chow’s comedies, has been left partially paralysed after suffering a stroke last year.
According to Hongkong media reports, the 59-year-old was at a sauna in Shenzhen when he suddenly had a severe headache and collapsed. Kin Yan’s assistant rushed him to the hospital where doctors said he had suffered a stroke.
Thankfully, they managed to save him but the stroke left Kin Yan paralysed on the right side of his body. Kin Yan, who also lost his ability to talk, is now recovering in Hongkong.
