SINGAPORE – Actor Christopher Lee has reportedly made an anonymous donation to help flood victims in Malaysia, but his act of kindness has been inadvertently revealed by fellow actor Yao Wenlong.
In a post shared on Facebook and Instagram Tuesday, December 28, Yao, who lives in Johor Baru, wrote that he had received a call from “a Malaysian friend who had made his home and established his career in Singapore, and made a his name in Taiwan “.
This person requested their help in making a donation and requested anonymity. Many states in Malaysia were affected by major flooding earlier in December, with more than 71,000 residents displaced.
Lee, 50, from Malaysia and based in Singapore, is married to actress Fann Wong, 50, and has a son with her.
Currently filming for nine months in Taiwan, he was named Best Actor at the Golden Bell Awards earlier this year for his role in the Taiwanese miniseries Workers (2020).
Yao’s message included a screenshot of a bank transfer receipt, with the amount blacked out and the name partially obscured by a heart-shaped sticker, with only âLee Mâ visible.
Netizens quickly deduced that the anonymous donor was Lee, whose Chinese name is Mingshun.
Yao also tagged Democratic Action Party for Johor Jaya state deputy Ms. Liow Cai Tung in her post.
She then shared her post on Facebook and thanked Lee by name, saying that “even though he’s overseas he still has a heart for Malaysia.”
Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News reported on the donation, but could not contact Lee for verification through its management agency.
