Godfrey Gao, 35, passed away from cardiac arrest today (Nov 27) while filming Chinese sports variety show Chase Me in China. The Taiwanese-Canadian actor had been doing a running challenge on set at 1.45am when he suddenly collapsed, while repeatedly exclaiming: “I can’t go on anymore”.

According to rumours on Weibo, production staff thought he was hamming it up for the camera and did not rush to his aid immediately. But Zhejiang TV, which produces Chase Me, later released a statement averring that its medical staff had administered medical treatment to Godfrey right away and rushed him to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
