Jacqueline Law 46 dies of pancreatic cancer

HK star Jacqueline Law dies from cancer at Singapore home – What’s New Today!

1 July 2012

Former Hong Kong actress Jacqueline Law has succumbed to pancreatic cancer. She was 45.
Jacqueline passed away at her home in Singapore, her stepson Daryl announced yesterday, adding that the family was already planning her funeral. Unable to comment further due to restrictions from his father, Singaporean magnate Liu Chee Ming, who married Jacqueline in 2008 after dating her for 11 years, he could only add, “Please look out for the obituary.”

In February, Jacqueline held a farewell party for herself with 20 of her friends from Hong Kong, including Sheren Tang, Monica Chan and Kitty Lai. Each of them received a CD with individual messages from their host, urging them not to be sad about her terminal illness. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2010.
In mid-June, she was admitted to a Singapore hospital and a visit from Sheren Tang led to speculation that Jacqueline was in critical condition. She had stopped all treatments by then. Last Friday, she sent a text message to a Hong Kong reporter saying: “I’m still around, thank you for the concern, I need to rest.” These were her last words to the press.
Jacqueline was 17 when she followed her brother into TVB and began her acting career in 1987. Despite being a newcomer, she was cast in her first drama, The Legend Of The Book And Sword, as one of the leads. The hit TV series was based on prominent novelist Louis Cha’s book of the same title.


She also featured in the drama A Friend In Need alongside Leon Lai, Jaime Chik and Simon Yam. In 1989, she met Stephen Chow in The Final Combat and they started a relationship that lasted three years. 

Jacqueline Law  made her mark in the '80s, starring in many Hong Kong drama serials and movies.

 SINGAPORE: Ex-Hong Kong actress Jacqueline Law died peacefully on Saturday morning at her home in Singapore after succumbing to pancreatic cancer, reported Hong Kong media.

Law, who married wealthy Singapore businessman Liu Chee Ming in 2008, had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010 and turned critically ill earlier this year.

Law's stepson Liu Zhen Hong (Liu and his ex-wife's son) confirmed on Saturday afternoon that his stepmother had died, and revealed that their family is currently preparing for the funeral on July 4.

Aside from the memorial service in Singapore, Liu Chee Ming will reportedly be holding a memorial service in Hong Kong as well on July 12.

3 steps to Successes
A teary-eyed Liu said that Law had been resting in Singapore for the past two months (before her death), and denied media reports which claimed she had lost hope and had given up on treatment prior to her death.

"She will no longer feel the pain (from her cancer treatments) after she is gone," he added.

It was as if Law knew that her condition was going to take a turn for the worse - she held a farewell party in February for herself along with 20 of her relatives and friends, including Hong Kong actress Sheren Tang, Kitty Lai and Monica Chan.

Each of the attendees received a personalized farewell video message from Law, excerpts of which were played at her memorial service in the Grace Hall at Mount Vernon Sanctuary.

In a short farewell video to all her family and friends, the former actress said that she is "leaving with a smile on her face" and that her life is "very complete".

Law starred in many Hong Kong television drama series and movies during the 80s.

She rose to fame after collaborating in the 1989 television series "The Final Combat" which starred Hong Kong comedian-actor Stephen Chow, with whom she was rumoured to have had a three-year relationship.
