Singapore actress Julie Tan has gone from lead star in That Girl In Pinafore (2013) to a tiny supporting role in the movie Mystery - not that she minds.
Her new role may be small, but it is a good stepping stone into the China market, she tells Life!.
Mystery, directed by China film-maker Wu Bin and shot entirely in Beijing, is a Singapore-China co-production. It opens at Filmgarde Bugis+ today.
Tan, 22, is the only Singapore actress in the cast that features Taiwan and China stars.
In the thriller, she plays the colleague of the main character Su Meike (played by Taiwanese star Ady An), an orphan who finds strange clues about her family's past in an abandoned house.
