Andie Chen Says He “Looked Really Cocky” During His Star Search Days
Maybe all that confidence was why he won Star Search in 2007.
When you swim with guppies, you only swim as fast as a guppy. But when you swim with sharks, you’ll start to swim as fast as them,” says Star Search 2007 champ Andie Chen matter-of-factly as he recounts to 8days.sg his days as a talent contest hopeful.
What the 33-year-old is trying to say with his guppy-shark reference is how joining (and subsequently winning) the talent competition, which is making its comeback this year, helped him become a better actor, a job that he tells us that he’s wanted since he was 11. "It’s been my passion since I was young and if I can, I want to commit my life to acting," he muses.
