Local 'ah jies' Zoe Tay and Xiang Yun were spotted donning the turquoise nurse uniforms at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital this afternoon, Jul 21. 

No, they did not switch careers -- they were filming for the new MediaCorp drama You Can Be An Angel Too. 

A Stomper spotted them at the food court, and also filming alongside Elvin Ng, Sheila Sim, Xu Bin and others.

Veteran actress Tay had previously spoken to Life!, where she shared about her phobia of injection needles. She and other cast members received basic medical training in giving cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and taking blood pressure at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

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."

She had harboured dreams of becoming a nurse after reading the story of Florence Nightingale during her primary school days.

She isn't the only one who is nervous about playing a nurse. Fellow actor, 25-year-old Xu Bin, is acting alongside Tay -- and he has a phobia of blood.

You Can Be An Angel Too is scheduled to air in January.
