Taiwanese-Canadian model-actor Godfrey Gao suffered from a heart attack in China on Wednesday while recording “Chase Me.” He was pronounced dead three hours later after he was sent to the hospital.
In the morning, Gao’s management agency issued a statement confirming Gao’s passing. The head of the agency, Gao’s parents, and his girlfriend rushed to Zhejiang, China.
Gao had developed his career path in China since 2012. It is reported that his 22-year-old girlfriend, Bella, who was born in a wealthy family, was introduced to Gao by his friend, James Mao.
Many netizens commented on Bella’s Instagram account, “I’ll hug you, I’m so sad” and some said, “I don’t know how to comfort you.” Another said: “Be sure to take care of yourself.”
