Actor David Carradine, who starred in television’s Kung Fu, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, and recently, as Bill in director Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill films, was found dead in his Bangkok hotel room on June 4th.
Carradine was reportedly found hanging from a rope in his room at the Swissotel Nai Lert Park hotel. Carradine was in Thailand shooting what was to be his latest film. The actor was known as a cultural ambassador of sorts for martial arts, which, he espoused, “can change [lives].” He studied drama at San Francisco State and was the son of actor John Carradine.
The well-respected thespian, whose work spanned television, stage, and film, appeared in over 100 films. There are currently conflicting reports regarding whether his death was accidental or self-inflicted.
