If Felicia Chin were to describe herself as an animal, it would be… “A smiling donkey,” she says, before bursting into one of her signature, earth-shaking guffaws. “Somebody who is a bit inconspicuous but works hard while staying cheerful all the time.”
While a donkey is one of the last critters we would have associated the 36-year-old actress with, she somehow manages to convince us with that description, especially with the “cheerful” part. We’re not quite sure about “inconspicuous”, though — as mentioned earlier, Feli’s name is practically synonymous with laughter you can hear from across the street (true story: a co-star of hers once told us he could hear her laughing from four storeys above him in a small wooden house).
However, she tells 8days.sg she had to tone down this ultra-bubbly side considerably on the set of her latest Mediacorp drama A Jungle Survivor, in which she plays the tough and icy Olivia. The character, by the way, is likened to a scorpion in the series.
