Burma Expels Hollywood Actress Before Suu Kyi Film Release


Officials in Burma said Tuesday that actress Michelle Yeoh was deported when she tried to visit the country last week.

Yeoh, who won international fame as a Chinese spy in the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, plays Aung San Suu Kyi in a film about the Burmese democracy activist scheduled for release later this year.

The officials did not explain the reason the 48-year-old Malaysian was turned back when she arrived at Rangoon’s airport on June 22.
