Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh recently discussed the lead role in a new film about recently released pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The charismatic Suu Kyi was released on Nov. 13 after her latest period of house arrest expired.
She was the daughter of late independence hero Aung San and spent 15 of the past 21 years in detention because of her fight against military dictatorship.
“(Suu Kyi) saw her off at the airport this morning,” said Nyan Win, Suu Kyi’s lawyer and spokesman. “Yeoh spent the whole day at Daw Suu’s residence,” he added, referring to Suu Kyi. “I understand she is planning to play her in a film in the near future.”
