Joanne Peh Reacts To Sex Scene In Toggle’s First M18 Drama Last Madame

She thought it could “have shown a little bit more”.

Joanne Peh Reacts To Sex Scene In Toggle’s First M18 Drama Last Madame

Mediacorp has finally dropped its first M18 drama Last Madame yesterday (Sept 26).

The 12-part, half-hour English-language serial stars Joanne Peh as Fung Lan, the mama-san of a whorehouse in pre-WWII Singapore. In a separate timeline set in the present, Fiona Fussi plays her great-granddaughter who chances upon her forebear’s hustling legacy.

The show also stars Lina Ng, Brandon Wong and newcomer Jeff Chou. It’s rated M18 — restricted to persons aged 18 and above — for “mature themes”. One reason for the higher age classification is that it contains a buzzy sex scene between Fung Lan and a cop, played by Jeff.

Joanne’s performance as the harlot-herder is so emotionally challenging and such a departure from her earlier roles that she took to Instagram to explain what she went through for the part. “It was such a big step for me as an actress to go bare in front of the production crew and my fellow actor,” she wrote. “But I decided to do this because the context of the story and character motivations were fully justified.”
