Viral model-photographer Chuando Tan, 55, looks young for his age. And for his new movie, Precious is the Night, he romances the even younger Chen Yixin. The daughter of Xiang Yun and Edmund Chen, Yixin turned 21 just three days ago. But when the movie started filming in 2018, she was only 18.
Precious is the Night is the debut feature by advertising power couple Wayne Peng and Lim Sau Hoong, who spent three years crafting the riveting arthouse mystery thriller, which revolves around a wealthy family’s wanton antics that end in violence. Other than Chuando and Yixin, it also stars Xiang Yun and Tay Ping Hui.
Despite their vast age difference, Chuando, who plays a 35-year-old Lothario doctor making house calls at the family home, woos Yixin’s naïve housemaid character and kisses her provocatively.
