Readers of a certain vintage will definitely know Hong Guorui. But the 63-year-old veteran actor, who was one of Singapore TV's most recognisable faces in the '80s, laughs it off (his exact words: "Okay only, lah") when we say that to him on the set of upcoming Mediacorp drama, Mind Jumper. Guorui plays a retired policeman who joins a private investigating company in the detective show, which also stars Joanne Peh and James Seah

You see, even though Guorui had starred in some of that era's biggest hits like Youth (1984) and Tycoon (1985), he originally wanted to be behind the camera and harboured no intention of being in front of it.
