Actor David Carradine Found Dead


“Kung Fu” and “Kill Bill” star David Carradine has been found dead at the Park Nai Lert Hotel in Junfan Mulay, Bangkok, Thailand. He was 72.

Carradine was in Thailand filming his latest film Stretch, according to his manager Chuck Binder, who said the news was “shocking. He was full of life, always wanting to work… a great person.”

The actor was found dead, naked and hanging from a nylon rope in the closet of his hotel room. There were no signs of other people in the room. The body has been sent to a hospital for an autopsy.

Carradine became famous in the 1970s when he starred in the television series “Kung Fu.” Modern audiences may best know him as Bill in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” films.

His career included more than 100 feature films, two dozen television movies and theater work.
