Ayden Sng Romances Jesseca Liu In His First Lead Drama Role, But Says He Would Never Date Someone Much Older In Real Life
The well-spoken actor has a lot to say about May-December relationships and being a rookie in showbiz.
When 8days.sg first spoke to Ayden Sng last March, he had starred in Bryan Wong’s short film The Playbook, where he played a bartender romancing a dying woman played by Sheila Sim. At the time, the newbie had almost no experience under his belt, which had us wondering what was it about Ayden that led Bryan to cast him after one meeting. (P/S: It could be the same thing that led us to hail him as TV’s next big thing after that first chat too.)
Speaking to us over the phone (’cos of the COVID-19 situation and all), Ayden, 26, muses: “You need a kind of rawness that comes with inexperience to have [an onscreen] relationship with an older woman. And I was able to retain some of this rawness because of my lack of familiarity with filming and acting in general.”
