Romeo Tan 陈罗密欧
A former model, Nanyang Poly graduate Romeo Tan came in fourth in “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 to land a role in a police drama serial “C.L.I.F.” after the competition. 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 web drama “Let’s Play Love” (a romantic comedy based on a reality game show), and a chef in “Bountiful Blessings”.
In 2012, viewers saw different sides of Romeo as he took 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 Believin'”; to a hardworking happy-go-lucky young fishmonger in the year-end blockbuster “It Takes Two”. 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 hardworking efforts and impressive performances were rewarded when he snagged the coveted Rocket Award (awarded for the biggest breakthrough) and triple nominations at Star Awards 2013. He also received his first Asian Television Awards nomination for his role in "Joys Of Life".
A year later, he charmed the audience with his bumbling underdog role in “96oC Café” and rose from supporting roles to the first male lead in “Sudden” where he plays a hotshot lawyer. He also lends his vocals for the theme song of this legal drama. Romeo’s star continues to rise in 2014 when he headlined the dramedy “Yes We Can!” and clinched his first Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes award at Star Awards ’20. Ever ready to take on new challenges, this actor turned radio deejay and co-hosted “Ning @ Night” with Chen Ning on Yes93.3FM.
With a passion for acting and a determination to perfect his skills, this dude is definitely a face to watch out for in the local entertainment arena.
