The actor rose to fame after his first runway appearance at China Fashion Week in 2015
It was the first time Wang had ever walked a runway and his flowing white beard certainly turned heads.
He became an overnight Internet sensation in China, with some dubbing him "China's Hottest Grandpa" and "Old Fresh Meat."
Wang Deshun was born in the northeastern Chinese city of Shenyang in 1936 and started working in pantomime.
He eventually moved into martial arts films, and has appeared in a number of Hollywood movies, including the "Forbidden Kingdom."
He first started going to the gym when he was 50, aiming to keep his body in shape for his acting career. Seven years later, with a sculpted, lithe body, Wang created a performance called "living sculpture."
In a society where most people retire between 50 and 60 years of age, Wang Deshun is an anomaly, and plans to work as long as he is alive. Next year, he'll walk one of the runways at Milan Fashion Week.
