Taiwanese-Canadian model and actor Godfrey Gao has died, his agency said Wednesday. He was 35.

Gao collapsed during filming of a Chinese reality TV show in the early hours of Wednesday morning, JetStar Entertainment said in a statement. He was rushed to hospital where he died around three hours later.
"We are shocked and saddened" by the incident, JetStar said, adding that representatives were "always directly by his side, whilst his family is rushing to the scene."
The company thanked "friends in the media and everyone who supported Godfrey" for their thoughts, and asked for his family to be left alone to mourn.

In a statement, the producers of Zhejiang Television show "Chase Me" -- which pits celebrities against regular contestants in a variety of physical challenges -- said Gao, who also went by the name Gao Yixiang, "suddenly fell down to the ground while running, medical staff treated him on the spot, he was then rushed to hospital for treatment."
"We feel extremely distressed and extremely sad," the statement said, adding producers were contacting Gao's family "to properly handle the aftermath."
Born in Taiwan, Gao achieved success in Greater China and beyond. He was the first Asian man to model for fashion brand Louis Vuitton and starred alongside Lena Headey and Lily Collins in the 2013 film "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones." Gao also appeared in numerous Chinese-language TV shows and the 2019 sci-fi epic "Shanghai Fortress," according to his IMDB page.

Back in the days, when Mudo went overseas, Jung Hyungdon and Haha had to make a bridge mid-air. It really made me think that the PD's became crazy for money and lost their minds.. They have to stay reasonable

Godfrey Gao had such a uniqueness to him and I liked him a lot... I'm so sad and upset at the wake of this bad news. I hope that he's happy in the skies now. Rest in peace.

Sungwoo and Jang Jungshin from our country also died while filming a game show. I don't think that we should support these dangerous and irrational shows just for people's entertainment

Godfrey Gao, he used to be famous for his handsomeness when he was a model... When he took a picture with Jung Woosung, he was so handsome that he turned Jung Woosung into an octopus...
