David Carradine found dead in Bangkok

David Carradine, the star of Kung Fu and more recently Kill Bill, has been found dead in a hotel room in Bangkok. The 73-year-old was in Thailand shooting a new film called Stretch.

According to the BBC the American actor was discovered dead in his suite by a maid with "with a rope around his neck and genitals". The Bangkok Nation claims that there were no signs of a struggle and that it appears that Carradine took his own life.

Carradine rose to fame back in the 1970s with the hit TV show Kung Fu as well as appearing in the 1975 cult classic Death Race 2000. Quentin Tarantino resurrected the veteran actor's career back in 2003 when he played the eponymous character of Bill alongside Uma Thurman in Kill Bill Volumes I and II.
