Patricia Lam Fung

Other names : 林凤
Lam Fung (1)
Patricia Lam
Lin Feng
Date of death : 28/8/1976
Activities : Actress (58)


Born in 1939, Lam Fung made her debut in 1957 and within a year had risen to the very top of big screen celebrity. Capitalizing on her youthful image, many of her films had "jade girl" in the title, and her fan club, whose name literally translates as "The Jade Girl's Friendship League," had 30,000 members at its peak. She made the annual "ten most popular stars" list nine years in a row, up until her retirement at age 27 in 1966. By then she had proved herself equally adept at classical and modern roles, formed her own film and fashion companies, and appeared in over 100 movies.

Lam chose marriage and motherhood over career, and by all accounts led a life of luxury. At the time of her death in 1976, the 37-year-old celebrity reportedly owned three houses and had US$3 million in the bank. The press had a field day speculating as to whether or not Lam's sleeping pill overdose was intentional, and all the rumors had something to do with the ageing star's appearance. Some hypothesized it was suicide induced by a botched plastic surgery operation. Others said it was a fatal but inadvertent mixture of sleeping tablets and either diet medicine or painkillers necessitated by cosmetic surgery.

Just as Lin Dai's son met a young and tragic end, Lam Fung"s son was murdered in 1999, 23 years after his mother抯 death. It was a sad coda to the unhappy saga of Hong Kong抯 "jade girl."

She died in 1976.
