For many, being divorced means the pits. But for some people, like local actor Shaun Chen, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Formerly married to actress-host Michelle Chia, the 34-year-old has never quite exude that star appeal, let alone enjoy a fruitful showbiz career, and he was mostly playing villains in several drama series. Since his divorce from Michelle last year, it looks like the tide has finally turned for the Malaysia-born Singapore permanent resident.
This year alone, Shaun has been involved in numerous promising roles such as Ch8’s Game Plan and MediaCorp Malaysia production, Justice in the City. Come next year, the actor’s screen presence will take a regional leap in a 13-episode Taiwanese drama which sees him play a man who turns to the dark side. Steady lah, Shaun!
