This kills me, he didn’t have to die and there are even more people mourning him. Taiwanese-Canadian actor and model Godfrey Gao passed away this week from a heart attack, collapsing in the early morning hours on the streets of China surrounded by cast mates and crew filming the variety show Chase Me. His agency confirmed he recently had a physical to prepare for a new movie and was healthy, but reports from the set of the variety show confirm that filming started at 8:30 am and the entire cast and crew worked for 17 hours until nearly 2 am when Godfrey collapsed. It was also a physical show where the premise was a two team chase.
Bystanders have said there was no medical personnel on set to perform CPR until minutes passed when emergency services arrived. On an even sadder note, multiple sources are stating that Godrey was actually married, secretly to rumored girlfriend 22-year old Bella Su who shares a similar background to Godfrey and was introduced by mutual friends. Her Instagram frequently features Godfrey’s beloved dog and also group photos with mutual friends. I’m so sorry for his family and friend’s loss, so many stars are speaking out on how kind and sweet he was ALWAYS to everyone. It’s always the best ones….. Sources say Bella and Godfrey’s family have arrived in China and will be taking his body back to Taiwan for funeral services.
