Actor Keo Woolford, best known for his work on Hawaii Five-0, has died.

Woolford’s publicist confirms the actor, 49, at a hospital in Oahu, Hawaii, just three days after suffering a stroke.

A native of Honolulu, Woolford appeared in a recurring role as Det. James Chang on the remake of CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, and he had small roles in such films as Happy, Texas (1999), Falling for Grace (2006) and Godzilla (2014).

Woolford toured as a member of the Hawaiian boy band Brownskin and starred in more than 300 performances as the King of Siam in a stage production of The King & I that made its way to the London Palladium.

The Haumana revolves around a host (played by Tui Asau) of a struggling luau show who reconnects with his culture after he takes over a high school hula class for boys after his former kumu hula (master hula teacher) dies.
