Bond girl Michelle Yeoh deported from Burma

27-Jun-2011 • Actor News

Former Bond girl Michelle Yeoh, who played Wai Lin in the 1997 James Bond film "Tomorrow Never Dies" opposite Pierce Brosnan, has been deported by army-dominated Myanmar (Burma) and blacklisted, an official said Tuesday.

In her latest film, due for release later this year, Yeoh plays pro-democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi. Kyi was freed late last year after seven years of house arrest and has won international acclaim for her peaceful resistance in the face of oppression.

"[Yeoh] did not have the chance to enter Myanmar again. She was deported straight away on the first flight after arriving at Yangon International Airport," a Myanmar official, who did not want to be named, told AFP.

"She's on the blacklist now," a second official said, declining to say why.
