Veteran local actress Zoe Tay could have been a nurse but for one little thing: She feared injection needles.
She had harboured dreams of becoming a nurse after reading the story of Florence Nightingale during her primary school days.
Tay, 46, said: "Due to a bad experience with an injection when I was young, I used to get scared at the mere sight of a needle. I slowly overcame my fear when I was in the hospital to give birth and I had to be put on the drip. I got used to injections."
While it is probably a little too late for her now to have a career change, it is not too late to try her hand at nursing. The veteran actress will get a chance to live her childhood ambition in the role of a senior nurse in the new MediaCorp drama You Can Be An Angel Too, which begins shooting next week. It is scheduled to air in January.
