According to Malaysian website mySinChew, Kenneth appeared to be in good spirits when he was spotted at a restaurant in Kedah two weeks ago.
“[He] is still quite fit. Although he is aided by a walking stick, he does not look like he’s 86 years old,” a restaurant staff was quoted as saying.
Kenneth’s showbiz career spanned 50 years and saw him acting in more than 100 movies and TV series. Apart from TVB dramas like The Justice of Life (1989) and The Greed Of Man (1992), he also starred in Hollywood action flicks like The Replacement Killers (1998), Rush Hour 2, and James Bond film Die Another Day (2002). He won the Best Supporting Actor award for the crime thriller Overheard 3 (2014) at the Hong Kong Film Awards in 2015.
He is survived by his son and daughter from his first and second marriage respectively, and his wife Taiwanese actress Chiao Chiao.
