Ian Fang 方伟杰
A graduate from Republic Polytechnic, Ian Fang made his acting debut in a police drama “C.L.I.F.” in 2011. He attracted eyeballs and a huge fan base after playing a rich kid who lands himself in trouble after single-handedly masterminding a series of bombings in this police drama series.
His good looks and bad boy demeanor caught the eye of another producer and landed him a meaty role in “On The Fringe”. His performance as Fann Wong’s rebellious younger brother in this breakout hit shot him to fame and turned him into one of Singapore’s rising and hottest stars now.
This Shanghai-born good looker has proven that he is no one-hit wonder and has since successfully developed a stable acting career.
2012 marks his debut on the big screen where he played an impulsive and belligerent teenager in the local triad action film “Imperfect”. The same year, he was cast as Christopher Lee’s son in “Show Hand”, a drama which focused on the cons of gambling as well as a school-themed drama “Don’t Stop Believin’”. In the latter, he played a problem student who has to look after his ailing granny and kid sister. The audience applauded his superb performance and he was awarded with the coveted Best Newcomer award at Star Awards '13. The concluding episode of this series drew more than 1 million viewers and is the most watched drama for that year.
In 2013, this street savvy lad anchors his first travelogue “My Working Holiday” which sees him backpacking to different countries to work in exchange for food and lodging. This may be Ian’s rookie attempt in hosting, but he does it with much grit and gusto and earned himself a Best Info-Ed Host nomination at the Star Awards ’20.
2014 sees Ian tasked with his first lead role in "Served H.O.T.", a 13-parter about 3 ex-convicts uncovering the heritage and stories behind Singapore's local delicacies.
Though Ian just gotten his start in showbiz, this passionate actor already commands much confidence and star power is set to become a permanent fixture in the local entertainment industry.
