Actress Michelle Yeoh, who stars as released political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi in an upcoming film, has been deported from Burma.
The former Bond girl arrived in Yangon on 22 June (11) but was denied entry because she is on a blacklist.
A government official says, "She did not have the chance to enter... She was deported straight away on the first flight after arriving at Yangon (Rangoon) International Airport."
Yeoh previously visited the country in December (10) to shadow democracy campaigner Suu Kyi and research her role in Luc Besson's forthcoming movie The Lady, to be released later this year (11),
Suu Kyi, the leader of the National League for Democracy, was freed from house arrest in November (10) after spending 15 years being detained because of her political views.
