    Actor Keo Woolford, best known for appearing on Hawaii Five-0 as Detective James Chang, has died at the age of 49.

    He died on Monday at a hospital in Hawaii, three days after suffering a stroke, his publicist Tracy Larrua said.

    Woolford wrote, directed and produced the award-winning 2013 independent film The Haumana.

    He also had small roles in films including Falling for Grace, the 2014 remake of Godzilla and Happy, Texas.

    The actor also starred in a production of The King And I opposite Elaine Paige, which was performed at the London Palladium.

    In 2013, Woolford received a special jury prize at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival for best first feature for The Haumana.

    He had just completed the script for a sequel and auditions were set to begin in January, Larrua said.

    But he was best known for playing Detective James Chang in the remake of Hawaii Five-0, which began in 2010.

    Woolford's co-stars from the police drama led tributes to him on Twitter.
