The news was revealed by TVB Entertainment News Facebook page on 2 March, stating that the actress and TV personality died at home in her sleep on 1 March, surrounded by her family.

Samantha began her career with TVB in 1990, a year after getting the fifth spot in the singing competition that was part of the variety show, “Enjoy Yourself Tonight”.
She had since hosted many programmes and filmed many dramas and films, including playing a TV reporter in Stephen Chow’s “God of Cookery”.
