18 April 2013 / 3 years 6 months ago

Despite having a body of work across theatre, television and cinema, FLY Entertainment artiste Chua En Lai is still best known for his comedic chops. And it frustrates him a little.Speaking to The New Paper recently, Chua, 33, spoke about how comedy opened many doors for him, yet left him somewhat typecast.“I accept that it happens, but I do hope there will be opportunities for me to do more dramatic roles.‘And Chua is taking steps to make that change.Besides showing off a more serious side of himself in Judgment Day, where he plays a guy trying to salvage a relationship with his girlfriend, Chua also recently finished filming his first Channel 8 drama, I’m In Charge.Chua is currently seen in Channel 5’s parody news sketch show The Noose, which airs on Tuesdays at 8.30pm.
