Veteran Tv actor Huang Wenyong has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 60.

The Malaysian-born star passed away on Saturday (20Apr13), a week after he was hospitalised in Singapore following complications from lymphoma.

Wenyong began his acting career in the 1980s and appeared in more than 100 Chinese-language Tv shows, including popular series Don't Worry, Be Happy, and its spin-off Lobang King. He also starred in action film The Seletar Robbery in 1982, but was perhaps most famous for his role in Singaporean Tv drama The Awakening.

In response to the news of his death, officials at the Star Awards 2013 Show 2 have announced that Wenyong will be posthumously feted with the Honorary Tv Award, in recognition of his contributions to Singapore's Tv industry.

The prizegiving will take place at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore on 28 April (13).
