MediaCorp’s Ch 5 To Hold Auditions For Leading Roles In New Drama “Polo Boys”

20 Feb

SINGAPORE: If you have the pecs and personality, MediaCorp Channel 5’s latest drama series might just be your big break.

For the first time, the entertainment channel is looking for attractive and talented alpha-males to cast for lead roles in “Polo Boys”, on top of extras.

To qualify, you will have to be between 18 and 25 years old and be able to float on water!

“Polo Boys” is about a group of young men brought together by their love for the sport of water polo.

Tempers flare and things do not go swimmingly when teamwork has to come first.

The show features stars like Adrian Pang, Aaron Aziz and Nathaniel Ho. It is set to hit screens in the middle of this year.

If you have no acting experience, do not fret. You can still make a splash at the auditions at the Education Ministry’s Co-Curricular Activities Branch at Evans Road this Saturday. But do remember to go there in your swimming trunks.

Nine Faces Of Channel 5

12 May

SINGAPORE : Here’s a quick pop quiz: What do Gurmit Singh, Adrian Pang, Fiona Xie, Michelles Chia and Chong, Andrea Fonseka, Utt, Aaron Aziz and Jas Arora have in common?

If you don’t know, you’re obviously not watching enough TV. Suffice it to say, these are the nine faces of Channel 5 who are tasked with spearheading the channel’s latest re-branding exercise, which aims to put more home-grown talent on air.

Their faces certainly are familiar enough: Gurmit is a 13-year Channel 5 stalwart; you could say that Adrian has been in almost every drama, variety, comedy and game show; Andrea became TV’s “it” girl just after one season on Deal Or No Deal; Fiona and Michelle Chia have successfully crossed over from Channel 8; Michelle Chong is known for her comic turns on TV; Utt’s perennial hosting duties have given him a wider demographic; while Aaron and Jas had impressive outings on Heartlanders and Achar!, respectively.

So why then?
