Tan Sri Mohamed Zain bin Shamsuddin (5 November 1935 – 1 March 2017), known professionally as Jins Shamsuddin, was a Malaysian movie actor, director and politician. He is known for his role in Bukit Kepong (1981).[1]

On 13 October 2004, he became the first actor-politician in Malaysia following his appointment as a member of the Dewan Negara in the 11th Parliament of Malaysia. He continued to be a Senator for two terms until 11 February 2011.[2]

He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in February 2011, causing him unable to speak and unable to recognising anybody else, including his family.[2] Following several years of bad health, Shamsuddin died at 5:45 pm at a clinic in Taman Melawati, after choking on cekodok on Wednesday, 1 March 2017 at the age of 81.[3][4][5] Shamsuddin's second son Putera Hang Nadim confirmed on his father's death.[6]
