American actor David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand, hotel, according to his personal manager, Chuck Binder.
Binder said Thursday that the death is being investigated but could provide no other details.
Carradine’s death was “shocking and sad. He was full of life, always wanting to work … a great person,” Binder said, according to People magazine.
Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred as traveling Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the television series “Kung Fu,” was 72.
Modern audiences may best know him as “Bill” in Quentin Tarantino‘s “Kill Bill” films. He earned a 2005 Golden Globe nomination for his role in the second movie in the two-part saga.
Hopefully his passing was out of old age and not drug inducded of foul play.
