Tay Ping Hui Is ‘Not Cool’

20 Jun

SINGAPORE: Beneath that suave and cool exterior, Tay Ping Hui is really a klutz who trips over himself, weirds people out with his OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), and is “terrible with women”.

If you can’t imagine it, see for yourself in the MediaCorp artiste’s next dramedy where he plays a former CID officer on the wrong end of the cool-chart.

Filming started on Thursday after a prayer ceremony held at Caldecott Broadcast Centre.

Speaking to TODAY, Tay revealed that in reality, he’s not always the picture of cool collectedness he seems to portray.

“I’ve walked into a tree before,” said the 37-year-old of his clumsiness.

“I may be quiet and low key but I don’t think I’m cool at all. That’s so lame.”

In Crime Busters (its working title), Tay’s “witty” and “intelligent” character investigates cold cases in an ulu four-staff department together with his young partner (Dawn Yeoh).

For her role, Yeoh trades her saccharine sweet princess-y image for a more androgenous look, complete with a shorter do and a spunkier get-up.

The series also stars MediaCorp’s new face to look out for – Paige Chua. The 27-year-old model recently starred as Fiona Xie’s sister in Just in Singapore and can currently be seen on TV in La Femme alongside Zoe Tay.

You’ll be seeing lots more of the comely actress when the nitty-gritties of her contract with MediaCorp are finalised.

Shaun Chen, Pan Ling Ling, Alan Tern, Rebecca Lim, Zhang Yao Dong, Joey Swee, Rayson Tan and Michelle Chong round up the cast.
