The Death of Leslie Cheung

(1956—2003)
When I first found out the news about Leslie Cheung was dead five years ago, I could not believe it. Three of the actors (Danny Chan, Paul Chung) in that movie “Encore” die in different period of time. Could it be possible? He used to be my idol when I was a teen, I dreamed a lot about him, and later on I had a chance to meet him personally. It was quite shocking to me, I still remember I was in a hair salon, I was talking to the staff, suddenly, my dream lover came out from the backside. My eyes were wide open. There was Leslie Cheung. He just finished his hair cut. I was there staring at him and my body was frozen, tell you the truth, it was quite rude to do that but I just could not help it. Leslie did not look at me he just payed the staff and took off, he went to the elevator and was gone. I regret I did not approach to him. A few years later, he came out of the closet, he said he is gay, I was so disappointed, I stopped seeing his film since then. But he was still a superstar for a lot of Aisan people.
