David Carradine has died

The American embassy in Bangkok, Thailand has confirmed that kung-fu legend and Kill Bill titular star David Carradine has been found hanged in his hotel room by a maid at the Swissotel Nai Lert Park in an apparent suicide. He was 72.

Carradine was well-known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine in TV’s Kung Fu. After flying high in the seventies, he appeared in many low-budget flicks until being cast alongside Uma Thurman in Kill Bill Vol. I and Kill Bill Vol. II- a role he admits Quentin Tarantino based partly on Carradine’s autobiography Endless Highway.

David Carradine is survived by brothers Keith and Robert and niece Martha Plimpton.
