David Carradine Dies

Kung Fu and Kill Bill star David Carradine has been found dead in a hotel in 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.” Binder said he believed Carradine’s death was from natural causes, and not from a suicide as reported in the Thai press. 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.
