Damian Lau Rumored to Have Suffered a Stroke

For the past two years, 70-year-old Damian Lau (劉松仁) busied himself with the preparations of Matteo Ricci: The Musical <利瑪竇>, which ended its last sold-out show on Sunday, January 12th. As the show’s creator and director, it was a bittersweet moment for Damian to see the show coming to an end.

The veteran actor made his first public appearance after a long time to support the final show. He was seen walking with a cane and was presented with unilateral right-sided weakness, which are all symptoms of having suffered a stroke. Damian also looked much skinnier compared to his last appearance in April 2019.

Damian was reached out for comment. He replied to reporters reassuring that he is in okay health. “Thank you for the concerns,” he said. “It isn’t that serious. I am recovering. Don’t worry.”

Matteo Ricci’s main actor, Jonathan Wong (王梓軒), was also reached for comment. His manager replied, “[Damian] is fine. He had a fall a while back, which is why he is now more careful in taking his steps. But he is okay. He was there for our rehearsals and the actual show. We hope he’ll have a speedy recovery. When you are older, you’ll need more time to recover. He is doing well. Thank you for the concern!”

    1. @hohliu, same here, he is also my childhood idol together with Michelle Yim. His does not look 70 years old at all and pretty much maintaining the same look when he was younger, just like Michelle Yim. Wishing him speedy recovery!

  1. Wow. I never knew he’s 70 years old already I have to say he still looks great as for his age. I also remember watching his first drama Yesterday’s Glitters back in the 80’s pretty interesting with Liza Wang and Mary Hon?
