(Newser) – David Carradine's funeral took place under gray skies, but the mood was upbeat, reports People. Hundreds of friends and family members turned out—including Tom Selleck, Jane Seymour, and former Kill Bill co-star Lucy Liu—to honor the actor who was found dead in his Bangkok hotel room earlier this month. A white hearse, accompanied by a pack of Hell's Angels on motorcycles, bore Carradine's casket to the service.

"It was touching, but light-hearted," said the actor's brother Bruce Carradine. "There weren't a lot of tears, but there was a lot of laughter."
