On 27th March, those in the entertainment circle suffered a loss. Veteran actor Huang Ha (黄哈, 黄景洋) reportedly passed peacefully in his sleep. The actor was 76 years old when he departed from the world.
Mr. Huang has acted in and directed a few films. However, most know him for his work as a martial artist. Mr. Huang supposedly learned martial arts with Lau Kar Leung (刘家良) under renown martial arts master Liu Zhan (刘湛).
In the 1970s and 1980s, Mr. Huang was very active in the entertainment scene. He often worked in martial art films, horror films and action films. Mr. Huang usually played small villain roles. His most notable villain role was as Boss Tan in “Spooky Encounters (鬼打鬼)”. He had apparently been cast for the role based on his martial arts background. Viewers reportedly enjoyed the fight scene he had with the film’s main character, stunning many with his moves.
Mr. Huang also directed two lesser-known films “Real Kung Fu (佛山赞先生)” and “Mission to Kill (火拼油尖区)”. Unfortunately, his career as a film director never really took off. His last acting role was in 1991 in “Devil’s Vendetta (妖魔道)”. Unfortunately, he faded from the public eye after that.
He was only heard from again in 2019, when the media reported he had been admitted to the hospital after suffering from a stroke. Later on, Mr. Huang was moved to a nursing home where he struggled to maintain contact with his friends. The actor was wheelchair-bound, however, his speech, memory and thought-process were reportedly fine. Unfortunately, it was later reported that he passed away on 27th March around 11pm.
Mr. Huang was well-loved by his friends. We hope he finds rest and peace in the next life.
