Singaporean Chuando Tan: Pursuing an Acting Career in China

This year, the model-turned-photographer has announced that he will be moving to China to pursue an acting career. Chuando’s basically showing us that age is just a number. No matter how old you are, it is never too late to pursue your dreams or trying something new.

In April this year, Chuando moved to Beijing as it allowed him to explore such opportunities.

It was a good move according to him, in an interview with 8 Days. “The whole world is turning their attention there and everything is happening there,” he said. “China is the place to be now.”

Speaking of which, a well-known agency has already signed him!

According to the same interview, Chuando shares that the agency is a “Hong Kong artiste management agency”, which also represents Angelababy and Japanese model and actress Kiko Mizuhara.

It sure seems like they played their cards right, considering Chuando’s current global fame.

“A lot of people from all over the world, like South America, have told me on Instagram that they discovered me and are now following me,” he added.

Chuando thinks that it “became a trend in India” for the Instagram users there to tag him in their photos — even if it had no relation to him — as a platform to get more exposure for their own photos.

He says that fans often send him messages expressing their love for him, and asking him about his diet and skincare routine.

“That’s the main part of why people are still following me on Instagram — anti-ageing. They want to find out more about me than my photography work, even though I started this Instagram thing for my photography.”

Aww. Chuando, we love your photography! And we can’t wait to see what you bring to the big screen.
