Postby iwanthp » Mon, 19 Sep 2011 7:34 pm

Have a look at the Resorts World Sentosa web page, they are always auditioning for characters...that is the reality of life as an actor in Singapore, especially if you have no training.

No. I was a part time actor for SBC -> TCS -> MediaCorp & Media Works for around 18 years. I've acted in over 100 different Mandarin Drama Serials since 1988 up till around 2005 or 2006. Zoe & I started working for SBC the same year.
