Romeo Tan 陈罗密欧
A former model and part time actor, Nanyang Poly graduate Romeo Tan came in fourth at “Star Search 2010”, a regional talent contest organized by MediaCorp. Touted as the hot favorite by the local media, this good looker with a hot bod oozes stage presence and appeals with his amiable personality throughout the competition. He impressed the crowd with his slick moves as he danced to the beat of superstar Rain’s ‘Sad Tango’ in the talent segment during the grand final.
Though he fell short of expectations and failed to win the title, he beat his peers by being the first amongst them to land a supporting role in “C.L.I.F.”, a police drama serial telecast in early 2011. His performance as an earnest and hardworking newbie in the Police Force earned him a Newcomer Award nomination at Star Awards 2012. Fans also saw this strapping lad played a top model in the first MediaCorp webi-drama “Let’s Play Love” (a romantic comedy based on a reality game show), and a chef in “Bountiful Blessings”.
In 2012, viewers get to see different sides of Romeo as he takes on various challenging roles. From a handicapped that grew up in a dysfunctional family in the action packed drama “Unriddle 2”, to a villain who manipulates his friends and family for his own gains in the star-studded blockbuster “Joys Of Life”, to a chef who pursues his love interest relentlessly in a youth drama “Don’t Stop Believing”; to a hardworking happy-go-lucky young fishmonger in the year-end blockbuster “It Takes Two”. In the same year, he also made his first foray into English language web drama with “Of Love and Hidden Charms” where he played an opportunist hunky sports editor. His hard work and impressive performances were rewarded when he snagged the coveted Rocket Award (awarded for the biggest breakthrough) and triple nominations at Star Awards 2013.
Romeo’s star continues to rise in 2013 as he is set to play the leads in “Sudden”, a Ch8 drama centered on legal eagles as well as “Common Space”, a Ch5 telemovie that portrays a facet of life in Singapore.
With a passion for acting and a determination to perfect his skills, this dude is a face to watch out for in the local entertainment arena.
