Former TV darling Tang Miao Ling and Cassandra See will both be making a short appearance on long-form series , the former as Lan Xiang, lady boss of a chain of coffee shops and the latter as the estranged mother of Jeanette Aw’s character.After close to 10 years in the industry, she had a flash marriage to her Indonesian-Chinese businessman husband in 2006 and they welcomed their first child, Kynaston, in the same year.After giving birth to her second child, Jefferson, in 2009, she decided not to renew her contract with Mediacorp and chose to become a full-time mother instead.Jazreel Low The second runner-up in the first Star Search in 1988 is now an entrepreneur (she owns a bridal shop, Jazreel Low’s Collections and a chain of spas, Aramasa Lifestyle) after leaving showbiz in 1994.
Joey Swee An actress and host, the former 1997 Star Search contestant has endeared fans with her bright and bubbly personality and likeable TV roles.They may not be meaty roles, but it’s a positive start which will, hopefully, pave the way for more acting projects and collaborations in the future.Maybe we’ll finally see Ivy Lee acting on TV again?The mother-of-one has openly expressed her interest to act on TV and with her husband, Christopher Lee, again – but only if the right role comes along.
