Burt Kwouk's agent issued the following statement: "Beloved actor Burt Kwouk has sadly passed peacefully away. The family will be having a private funeral but there will be a memorial at a later date." Kwouk is survived by his wife Caroline Tebbs, who he married in 1961 and his son. 

Kwouk famously played Mr. Ling in Goldfinger, and Spectre 3 in You Only Live Twice, as well as a Chinese genearl in the 1967 spoof Casino Royale. But now to bring it back to one of his greatest, most acclaimed moments of all time in Pink Panther between Cato (himself) and Chief Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers):



Rest in peace Mr. Kwouk, you were a tremendous talent and a true gift to the film/television industry!

Michiyo Yasuda's terrific work with the studio spans from her earliest days with work on 'Castle in the Sky' (1986) to Hiyo Miyazaki's final film, 'The Wind Rises' (a few years ago).

“What I like best is when I am building up the colors in my head, thinking of how to get the tone worked out,” Yasuda said during her interview with the L.A. Times. “Color has a meaning, and it makes the film more easily understood. Colors and pictures can enhance what the situation is on screen.” RIP Michiyo Yasuda, you will be missed!
