Carradine was known for his roles as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s television series Kung Fu, as well as ‘Big’ Bill Shelly in Martin Scorsese’s Boxcar Bertha, folksinger Woody Guthrie in Bound for Glory (1976), and as the title role of Bill in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, Vols. 1 & 2.
The actor was 72-years old, he had over 200 film and television credits to his name. Initial reports from Thai news sources cited his death as a suicide, but his manager Chuck Binder has since announced that he believes the actor died of natural causes.
