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.
