Leslie CheungLeslie Cheung, renowned Canto pop singer and actor, jumped to his death in Hong Kong. It's unclear why, but he did have a suicide letter. He starred in John Woo's A Better Tomorrow as well as Chen Kaige's Farewell My Concubine and Wong Kar-Wai's Happy Together.

Roger Ebert praised Cheung's performance in Farewell, My Concubine: "Leslie Cheung's concubine is never less than convincing, and his private life - he is essentially raised by the opera as a homosexual whether or not he consents - contains labyrinthine emotional currents."
