Former Channel 8 actress Lin Liyun has passed away from illness at the age of 58, Channel 8 News reported.
Diagnosed with multiple system atrophy in 2010
Lin was diagnosed with multiple system atrophy — a progressive neurodegenerative disorder — in 2010, and required a wheelchair to get around since 2014, The Straits Times reported citing Shin Min Daily News.
Starred alongside Huang Wenyong
Lin appeared in many Channel 8 drama series in the 1980s, including the 13-episode drama series "CID 83" with late veteran actor Huang Wenyong back in 1983.
Death is a part of life
Lin seemed to have taken death in its stride.
Back in 2015, she told Shin Min Daily News that "every life has its time, and is a cycle by itself."
"To be born, to grow old, to get sick, and to die are all part and parcel of life."
