TVB Ariste Elton Loo, 51, Passes Away

TVB artiste Elton Loo Kwan Chor (羅君左) was sent to the hospital yesterday due to a sudden heart attack. He passed away at 6:38PM after hours of treatment.

The 51-year-old felt discomfort in early morning and was hospitalized immediately. His condition worsened later the day and was sent to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). It is known he had a renal failure, heart problems, and other health issues because of diabetes.

Loo's good friend Shiu Kin Heng announced Loo's death to the media, saying Loo was thankful to see visits from many of his good friends before he left this world; he passed away peacefully without leaving any last word.

The actor has been in the showbiz for 30 years and is well known of playing a character called "Ben Jai" in "Hong Kong 81" and impersonating Lydia Shum in variety show "Enjoy Yourself Tonight." He has been suffering from type 1 diabetes and his health condition got worse every year. He underwent 2 amputation surgeries last year due to bacterial infections on his right leg. However, he still faced the world optimistically as he extended his contract with TVB and continued to get involve in stage plays.

Its really sad to see this actor going away because of diabetes.

His last series of TVB aired Ghost Writer and A Pillow Case Mystery II were great in his limited role.
