Elvin Ng Braces
MediaCorp actor Elvin Ng is Mr. Nice Guy. He is charming and friendly and gives you his undivided attention when he talks to you. The good-looking and popular actor has certainly felt the brunt of many public bashings over the years. Since he entered show business in 2005, he has become the guy that critics love to hate. At the upcoming Star Awards next month, he is only one of five stars to be nominated for a Most Popular Artiste award in all five country categories: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, and China.
In Cambodia, in particular, he has become a big star, gracing its local magazine covers and holding frenzied fan meets. Last year, he was also the leading man – and only Singaporean – in the Cambodian TV miniseries The Jade Elephant. Perhaps, his haters will always love to hate him because the accidental actor became a huge deal so quickly.
He was discovered on the variety show School Belle And The Beau (2004), which features a bevy of babes and hunks from local tertiary institutions. Then a National University of Singapore English literature student, he clearly charmed the pants off the producers at the TV station as the company offered him a prominent acting role in a drama series soon after. That role was the part of a “kind-hearted Ah Beng” in Channel 8’s A Life Of Hope (2005). He recalls: “It shocked me that I would get such a big role so soon. I had no acting experience at all, but I guess they felt I fit the role somehow.
“I had no idea what I was doing and having to juggle memorizing scripts and studying for school at the time was difficult. I have to thank the very good editors for editing the scenes to make my parts watchable,” he says with a chuckle.
Months later, the broadcaster offered him a three-year artist contract.
“I considered it for a long time. I felt very conflicted. I don’t have a lot of confidence in myself, but I thought if they saw something in me, then maybe I should just try it out,” he says.
At the time, he was wearing braces to fix his “Dracula fangs”, which hindered his speech somewhat for his first few roles.
“People said I talked as if I had an egg in my mouth. But I can’t complain because if I hadn’t fixed my teeth, I wouldn’t be able to have my big smile for Systema now, right?” he says with a laugh, referring to his endorsement commercials for the oral care brand. In the years to come, he would take on one leading-man role after another in dramas such as Rhythm Of Life (2008) alongside Christopher Lee and The Dream Catchers (2008) opposite Rui En. In most of them, his character was the dashing romantic hero.
“I guess that’s how my squeaky-clean image and the nice-guy image came about. Sometimes, I’ll ask the producers if I can try playing a bad boy, but they’ll say I should just keep playing the good guy because it suits my look,” he says.
“I’m fine with that. Since I’m sort of boxed in this way, I hope I can find ways to bring subtleties to every good guy character I get and make the most of this box.”
No matter how hard he tried, however, the criticism just kept coming his way. Audiences branded him “wooden” and speculated that he was coasting by only on his good looks.
“People kept saying I’m only lucky because I have the face. Maybe that could be true in the beginning, but you need to have something more to last this long.
“You also need character and perseverance and lots of tough, hard work. Other actors have come and gone, but I’m still here, right?”
Executive producer and director Chong Liung Man, 51, who has worked with Ng on several dramas since his debut including Breakout (2010), says the actor is a “very, very hardworking person”.
Mr. Chong says: “If you look at Elvin’s script, you’ll be stunned. Every page is filled with all of his thoughts and writing because he’s analyzing every line his character says to better prep for his role.
“I’ve told Elvin before he’s not gifted when it comes to acting, but you can’t ever deny that he gives it his all.”
Life! television critic Foong Woei Wan also praises him for his work ethic. “I’ve had my doubts about him. But through the years, he’s almost always worked a little harder on his Mandarin, on his acting, than expected – and that’s something,” she says.
Things finally seemed to take a turn for the better in 2010, when Ng was nominated for Best Actor at the Star Awards for playing the beefy, but naive Tarzan in the drama Together. A year later, he was nominated in the same category again for playing an autistic savant in the blockbuster drama Breakout (2010).
Is Elvin Ng Gay
According to some news trending on Asian news was that one neighbor tipped off Chinese newspaper Lianhe Zaobao about a near-daily sighting she found intriguing. It was said that Romeo Tan had been spotted quite often visiting Elvin Ng’s house. He even stayed in at Ng’s house frequently. This was an account given by the neighbor who tipped off Lianhe Zaobao.
When a reporter from Lianhe Zaobao asked about it, Ng didn’t take to it nicely. In his exact words in Mandarin, he responded with, “This question is already infringing on my privacy! Have I hurt anyone? If I were to have a house party, do I need to report who I’m inviting? While I’m at it, do I also need to report how many times do I bathe in a day?!”
On the contrary, Romeo Tan appeared to be more composed when the reporter approached him on this issue.
The local actor commented, “Thanks to everyone for your concern. There’s absolutely no issue with us, which part of it isn’t normal? Is the reader who tipped you off complaining about my parked car blocking their way? In fact, when I am there, I’d usually greet the neighbors.”
Basing the facts stated, it is clear that the duo has nothing in common apart from their friendship. This is hence bad rumors that had hit the media.

Elvin has been featured in a new film titled All Is Well which is expected to start airing from 26 August 2019 with the Singapore story airing weeknights at 9 pm on Channel 8 and the Taiwan story at 10 pm on Channel U. It will also be available on Toggle from 19 August 2019.

Zoe Tay as Romeo Tan’s mum? Just one of the challenges for the cast of All Is Well
An actor’s job is not an easy one. Often, a lot is asked of them. And one of the hardest things to deal with must be being cast as the mother of someone 20 years older than your own son.
That’s what Zoe Tay, 51, does in All Is Well, Mediacorp’s upcoming Mandarin drama. She and Chen Hanwei play the parents of the character portrayed by Romeo Tan, who’s 34.
“It was like, ‘Huh? Romeo – my kid?’” Tay recounted. And as a further twist of the knife, when she asked if special-effects makeup would be used to make her look older, the answer was no.
Still, Ah Jie, every inch the star, handled it in a cavalier fashion. “It was a bit weird in the beginning, but you have to convince yourself,” she shrugged. “I didn’t have many scenes with Romeo, so it was fine.” In the future, she quipped, “I’ll be Elvin’s mum; Desmond’s mum … everyone’s mum.”
All Is Well is a Taiwan-Singapore co-production that’s set to be a blockbuster: Set in both locations, two storylines will air over two channels – one at 9 pm on Channel 8, the other at 10 pm on Channel U. The 40-episode Mandarin thriller has also been acquired by platforms in Malaysia and Vietnam. It features an all-star cast from both Singapore and Taiwan, including Fann Wong, Joanne Tseng, Sheila Sim, Ian Fang, Lan Hsin Mei, and Pets Tseng.
While Taiwanese stars including Blue Lan and Liu Kuan Ting spent several months filming in Singapore, local actors Romeo Tan, Elvin Ng and Desmond Tan filmed many of their scenes in Taiwan.
Ng, who spent four months there, shared that one of the biggest differences in production habits was that in Taiwan, scripts can change on the spot. “In Singapore, we have to prepare for in advance, but there, we have to live in the moment and be quick to adapt,” he said. “Every day, you feel like you’re living on the edge.” The experience has helped him grow both in his career and as a person, he added.
In addition, “The Taiwanese are more exuberant. They’re more expressive. In terms of acting as well, they can be very spontaneous, or they can be suddenly very slow and suddenly very fast. It’s a lot more irregular. You see the difference in cultures.”
On Romeo’s part, it was the little things that took adjusting to, like how the Taiwanese drive on a different side of the road. “There are a few scenes in the show where I am supposed to drive, so that was a bit challenging. When I first got to Taiwan, I opened the (driver’s) door when I tried to enter a taxi. The uncle looked at me, like, ‘What are you doing?’”
He also experienced his first earthquake when he was in a cafe and the chandeliers and glasses began to tinkle. His first instinct was to panic, but when he noticed that the people around him were calm, he decided not to overreact. All was well in the end.
Perhaps the biggest challenge was being away from his dog, Tigger, the schnauzer. He missed her so much, he said, that he bought her lots of treats and clothes while he was there – and even a video surveillance system so that he could watch her remotely.
Meanwhile, Blue Lan enjoyed his time in Singapore in the simplest of ways. During his time off, he shared, “I liked watching the light show at Marina Bay Sands and walking around the Esplanade area, enjoying the night view; as well as going to hawker centers to eat.”
His favorite dish, he said, is a duck and salted vegetable soup. “I think it’s fantastic. Each pot of soup is individually cooked for many hours. I think the taste is extraordinary. Even though the weather’s very hot, it tastes so good.”
Catch All Is Well starting Aug 26, with the Singapore story airing weeknights at 9 pm on Channel 8 and the Taiwan story at 10 pm on Channel U. Also available on Toggle from Aug 19.

‘All is well over here’, say Elvin Ng and Romeo Tan after Taipei car accident
Romeo Tan and Elvin Ng are set to return safely to Singapore on Sunday (Sept 1), after an eventful promotional trip to Taipei – which involved a baseball game and a car accident.
The two Mediacorp actors, who were there to promote their latest drama All Is Well, were involved in a car accident in Taipei on Thursday night, when the taxi they were riding in was rear-ended by a bus, reported Toggle.sg.
Tan and Ng sustained minor injuries but are fine now, and even attended a baseball game with their fellow cast members yesterday.
“It’s promotional activities as usual here in Taipei. All is well over here and we are doing fine, after medical checkups were done into the early hours of the morning and after sleeping off the shock,” Ng posted on Instagram to reassure people.
“A large tour bus rammed into our stationary vehicle from the back and we probably suffered some impact injuries but generally we are fine. Sorry for the scare and thank you to all the friends and colleagues and everyone who was concerned and asked about our safety. It’s heartwarming to receive all your well wishes and we are doing ok, so no worries!”
The accident happened around 7 pm, when a bus slammed into the back of the MPV taxi they were riding at a traffic junction, seconds after stopping at the traffic light. The front and rear windscreens of their taxi, as well as the bus’ windscreen, were smashed.
“We were both looking at our phones and it happened out of nowhere,” Tan told Toggle.sg. “The rear windscreen shattered completely so the glass might have rained down on us. However, because it was an MPV that we were in, the glass fragments fell into the boot instead.”
He added: “My left knee and ankle hurt a little. I’m just worried about the back of my neck because I felt a bit unwell right after the accident happened, but I’m feeling better now.”
Ng shared: “I blanked out for a while after the accident. I hit my head and my vision is slightly blurred right now. My ankle hurts a little and I just realized that my knee is bruised.”
The two actors have since undergone physical examinations at a Taiwan hospital, with Ng also going for an eye checkup and Tan getting an X-ray on his neck area. A police report was also made.
