'Bond girl' actress Yeoh playing Suu Kyi in upcoming movie 'deported from Burma'
Rangoon, June 28 (ANI): Burma has deported Michelle Yeoh, the Malaysian-born Hollywood actress who stars as pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in an upcoming film, for unconfirmed reasons.
A government official has said that Yeoh, who is best known for her Bond girl role in 'Tomorrow Never Dies' and for starring in 'Crouching Tiger', 'Hidden Dragon', arrived in Rangoon on June 22 and was deported the same day because she was on a government blacklist, express.co.uk reports.
The official, however, did not confirm why she was on the list.
Meanwhile, Suu Kyi's spokesman Nyan Win also confirmed that the action star was deported, but did not know why.
The Luc Besson film about Suu Kyi's life, 'The Lady', is due out in October.
Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace laureate was kept in detention by the former military junta for almost two decades, before being released last year. (ANI)
