Authorities in Myanmar have deported Hollywood actress Michelle Yeoh who plans to play Myanmar's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in an upcoming film, Reuters reported.

Yeoh was detained on arrival at Yangon's international airport on June 22 and sent out of the country on the next flight.

"She was deported on the same day because she is on a blacklist," an immigration official said.

Yeoh, 48, has been in Thailand, Britain and France filming scenes for the film "The Lady," which is due to be released in October.

"The Lady" is a love story about Suu Kyi and her late British husband Michael Aris, and details their long separation while Suu Kyi was detained in 1989.
