Ziyi Zhang Mourns 'Grandmaster' Crew Member Who Flew on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370
The Grandmaster‘s Ziyi Zhang takes the red carpet for a big night out at the 2014 Asia Film Awards at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Thursday (March 27) in Macau.
The 35-year-old actress was joined on the red carpet by her director Wong Kar Wai – the film swept the show with seven wins including Best Movie!
Despite their successes that evening, the cast and crew took the stage to mourn crew member Ju Kun, who was a martial arts director on the film. Ju was one of the passengers on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
“One of our martial arts directors unfortunately is one of the victims of MH370, so here I hope the Malaysian government can try their best to address this issue by taking a more transparent attitude… and to let us know the truth,” Wong said in his acceptance speech, speaking directly to Malaysian government officials.
“Today I am very emotional about (our) crew member and friend. We’ll have to say goodbye to him forever,” Ziyi added (via AFP).
Our thoughts are with all of the passengers and families of those on board MH370.
