BIOGRAPHY

Gillian Tan is a performer with a passion in acting. Her stage credits include A Midsummer Night's Dream, Adultery, Living in a Moment, Lord of the Rings exhibition skits and Siglap Dinner Performance (which she wrote & produced). On film, she can be seen in Exposed! (Singaporean theatrical release), Sticks & Stones (USA), Strings (Panasonic award-winning film), Ei8ht amongst various others. She has been very fortunate to play a myriad of characters on Singaporean television dramas and comedies, including Durian King (as a series regular), Growing Up, Under One Roof, Rouge, First Touch, Phua Chu Kang, Incredible Tales (filmed in Singapore & Indonesia), Gaduh Gaduh Sayang (Singapore & Malaysia co-production), Life, Singapore Shakes, Changing Lanes, Lifeline, Full Circle, Tiramisu and many more. Her singing credits include the Security Fair Jazz reception, Donaldson Awards Dinner (in Vietnam), and Monaco piano bar's opening week. She has hosted events for Donaldson (in Vietnam), Dell, Azure, 3M, Intel, General Motors and Metro. Though not a major focus in her career, Gillian's modeling work spans Singapore, Malaysia and Japan. Gillian strongly believes that as a performer, she is always learning. Always looking to expand the capabilities and thresholds of her career, she enjoys exploration and challenge of new projects. Intent on one day taking her craft around the world, her first official steps include lead roles in a Massachusetts-based independent film (which premiered at 2006 Hollywood DV festival), and potentially feature films in Israel and Croatia.
