Experienced, talented, amazing

Aileen Tan indeed cuts as an extremely visible figure in the Channel 8 drama 'Entangled', where she plays a scheming, rich CEO who realises over time the value of family through the loss of her son and the slow acceptance of her husband's illegitimate son. Indeed, the motherly looking actress fits smoothly into any role, regardless of being the villian or the good guy.

I grew up watching Aileen Tan on TV, and over time, I grew to notice several signature moves that made her such a success in the Singapore film scene over the past few decades. Significantly, her ability to control her emotions to give the right mix to the context and atmosphere of the scene was of no small help. I always liked the way she delves into her role, you can feel no sign of pretense when you watch her, and she stands out starkly from junior actors, where there is a feeling of awkwardness suggesting that they are still trying to come to grabs with the story.

One other thing i like about her is her openness to trying English drama serials. Unlike some other veteran actors, whose traditionalist mindset may have prompted them not to try out English drama serials which are commonly watched by a signifcantly different segment of the TV population, she was not afraid to appear in serials such as Mata Mata, despite it being distinctly observable that she is having some trouble speaking really smooth english.

In summary, shes experienced, talented and amazing! Most notably for her effort in Mata Mata!
