Kung Fu Actress Faces Off Against Ex-Husband, the “King of Canal Street”

Must Read

This morning’s Daily News recounts the tearful testimony of Vietnamese kung fu actress Ly Huong, who’s on trial in Brooklyn for kidnapping her own child in 2005. According to the article, she fled this country to escape her husband, restaurant owner Tony Lam (“the King of Canal St.”).  Huong said she left her successful acting career in Vietnam and came to the U.S. to be with Lam, owner of “Bun” on Grand Street.  Reporter John Marzulli explains:

When she got to New York, Lam forced her to work in a pizza joint, talked about bringing home hookers and slapped her around, she claimed. “I just wanted to get a knife and cut my throat,” Huong cried. Lam testified he wouldn’t last a minute in a fight with his ex-wife, who is an expert in Thai boxing and starred in a kung fu flick called ‘Phoenix Operation.’ “If I were to hit my wife, I would be the one who dies first, because she is a professional martial artist,” Lam said, according to a transcript.

Huong could face up to three years in prison if convicted. Lam has custody of the child.
