Local celebrities’ offspring are making a splash in the entertainment scene here, starring in Channel 8 dramas and commercials and getting signed to talent agencies.
The second-generation stars are Chantalle Ng, actress Lin Meijiao’s daughter; Shalynn Tsai, former actress-host Chen Xiuhuan‘s daughter; Joel Choo, actor Zhu Houren’s son; and Marcus Guo, host Guo Liang‘s son.
Some of them even come in twos. There are siblings Chen Yixin and Chen Yixi, former actor Edmund Chen and actress Xiang Yun‘s children; and Tay Ying and Calvert Tay, actor Zheng Geping and actress Hong Huifang‘s children.
When The Straits Times checked in with a number of the offspring last year, many were undecided about following in their parents’ footsteps.
Shy teen Chen Yixin even recoiled from the memory of making a cameo in her father’s short film Echoing Love (2011).
Now they are getting their feet wet and have found their way into show business.
