Elizabeth Sung, whose lengthy acting career included a prominent role on “The Young and the Restless” and numerous other TV appearances, has died at 63.

Her passing was confirmed by her agent, but a cause of death has not been revealed.

Sung joined “The Young and the Restless” in 1994 and portrayed Luan Volien, a character who owned a restaurant called the Saigon Shack. She remained on the CBS soap opera until 1996.

The actress, who was born in Hong Kong, began her acting career in the 1980s. She landed a slew of gigs outside of the soap opera realm as well, including on notable TV series such as “NYPD Blue,” “Mike and Molly,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “ER” and “Hawaii Five-0.”

In addition to her many on-screen roles, Sung advocated for diversity in the entertainment world and supported AIDS charities, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Her brother Philip reportedly died from AIDS in 1985.
