Here are 1 famous actors from China died in 1957:
Shi Hui (November 27, 2014 Tianjin-December 1, 1957 Shanghai) a.k.a. Hui Shi, Yutao Shi or Shi Yutao was a Chinese film director and actor.
Shi Hui began his career in the film industry in the 1920s as an actor, but eventually transitioned to directing. He is best known for his work in the 1930s, during which he directed several successful films, including "Zhongshan Goes to America" (1934) and "Noble Lady" (1936). Shi was considered to be one of the pioneers of Chinese film and contributed greatly to its development during this early period.
In addition to his work in film, Shi was also a talented writer and playwright. He was a member of the Shanghai School of Literature, which was a group of writers and intellectuals who were active in the 1920s and 1930s. Shi's literary works often drew inspiration from the social issues of his time, and he used his platform to advocate for social change.
Unfortunately, Shi's career was cut short by the Japanese occupation of China in the 1940s. He continued to work in the film industry during this time, but was limited in his ability to create films that were critical of the Japanese government. Shi passed away in 1957, but his legacy as a prominent figure in Chinese film history lives on.
