Who: Ayden Sng, 27, is Mediacorp's rising new star. The effectively bilingual actor, who majored in international comparative studies at Duke University in North Carolina, worked as a product consultant in a digital consultancy firm before he turned to acting full-time. He got his first leading role in Loving You, a romance drama which aired earlier this year. Sng, who is also a model, can now be seen in the 130-episode culinary drama Recipe Of Life, which airs weekdays on Channel 8 at 7.30pm. The series, which is expected to continue filming up till March, is also available on meWatch.

To be honest, when I'm in production for a drama, I have no concept of weekends or weekdays. I have only off days and days when I have to be on set. On days when I don't film I do other work - I work with brands to create fashion content for my Instagram.
