Veteran MediaCorp actor Huang Wenyong has died

Veteran MediaCorp actor, Huang Wenyong, died on Saturday evening, aged 60.

Born in Malaysia, Mr Huang joined the then Singapore Broadcasting Corporation in the 1980s and was among the first few batches of locally-trained actors to enter the industry.

Fame came a few quick years later in 1984, with his portrayal of the earnest Chinese migrant Ah Shui in the seminal drama series The Awakening.

The 27-episode drama spanned the arrival of migrants to Singapore to its post-independence development, and was the first local Chinese drama to be aired overseas, in China.
