Ouyang Sha-Fei (1923-2010)

Veteran actress Ouyang Sha-fei passed away last week at the age of 86 in Salt Lake City, UT. She had made over 200 films in her career. In 1940, Ouyang Sha-Fei was admitted to the Shanghai Venus Pictures Actors' Training. Her 1946 film, Spy Number One, directed by her husband Tu Guang-Qi, was the top grosser that year. According to her husband, Ouyang Sha-Fei was already pregnant at the time and hid her stomach under a mink shawl. In 1949, she and her husband left Shanghai and moved to Hong Kong. For her role in MP&GI's (Cathay) Devotion (1960), Ouyang Sha-Fei won the Best Supporting Actress at the 7th Asian Film Festival. In 1963, she joined Shaw Brothers and played Ivy Ling's mother in Love Eterne. The actress won the Best Supporting Actress Award at the Golden Horse in 1968 for Too Late For Love. Ouyang Sha-Fei will be cremated and buried in Los Angeles next to her husband. The two divorced in the late 1970's but reunited under the auspices of one of their daughters. (Chinapress), (ChinaDailyNews), (NextMedia), (Xinhua) [Thanks to Glenn!]
