Myanmar deports Hollywood star Michelle Yeoh

Hollywood actress Michelle Yeoh stars as pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in an upcoming movie.



Yangon: Officials in Myanmar say the military-backed government has deported Hollywood actress Michelle Yeoh, who stars as pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in an upcoming movie.

A government official said on Tuesday that the Malaysian actress arrived in the capital Yangon on June 22 and was deported the same day because she was on a government blacklist.

The official, who declined to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the press, did not say why Yeoh was on the list.

Suu Kyi spokesman Nyan Win confirmed Yeoh was deported but did not know why.

The Luc Besson movie about Suu Kyi`s life, "The Lady," is due out in October. Suu Kyi spent most of the last two decades detained by the former military junta. She was released last year.
