It's been a while since we last saw Jeanette Aw on TV. And there's no better way for the actress/director/professional baker to mark her return to the small screen than with her sure-to-be meaty role in upcoming Ch 8 drama After The Stars.
The 40-year-old star, last seen on TV in 2018's Till We Meet Again, will play an actress-turned-artiste manager in the Wawa Pictures production. The show revolves around Jeanette and the brutal office politics she deals with after her boss, played by Shaun Chen, hires another artiste manager, described as “someone ruthless who stops at nothing to achieve her goals”. The drama, which sounds like a companion piece to other local showbiz-themed shows The Dream Makers and The Lead, also stars Cynthia Koh, He Yingying and Lin Meijiao.
But Jeanette's involvement in the upcoming drama is, however, not the only casting news that's making headlines.
