The English action film star who played the villain in Ip Man 2, Darren Shahlavi, was found dead in his Los Angeles home recently.
He was 42-years-old, reports HKTOPTEN.
Donnie Yen Chi Tan, after learning about the death of his former co-star, remembered him on Weibo.
"When we worked on that final scene, my co-star suddenly told me that actually we have already met at a martial art forum in England!
"At the time he was only 15. He said that from that day on he swore to become an actor. Gone too soon!"
