ADELE WONG 王惠珊
Adele Wong is an actor and writer, descended from a family of circus performers. Graduated from the National University of Singapore with an honors degree in Sociology, and continued exploring social stories and commentary through her performing and writing work. She began her performance training onstage as a dancer and doing theater plays at NUS.
Upon graduation, Adele scored her debut feature film, The Days, which was screened at the Tokyo International Film Festival, Taiwan International Film Festival, the Singapore International Film Festival and short listed for the New Talent Award at the Shanghai International Film Festival. She played the female lead and recorded one of the theme songs, 《懂》Knowing, for the movie soundtrack. Other feature film credits include Perfect Rivals, a Singapore-Malaysia co-production, and Love in Tokyo, an American film shot in Tokyo, alongside Jason London.
Bilingual in both English and Mandarin, Adele worked on television dramas, TV-movies, TVCs and corporate videos. Her English television credits include Jack Neo’s first English drama series, Happily Ever After, Perfect Deception, The Pupil, Fighting Spiders, and The Hush. For television-movies, A Kuchinta Family Reunion, and Angels.
Her Mandarin drama series credits include 走进走出 (The Family Court), 男兄烂弟(My Buddy) and two upcoming television dramas, 绝世好工(The Dream Job) and 来自水星的男人 in 2016.
Outside of commercial work, her blank canvas quality has seen her play a different range of characters in many independent short films, including Garden Girls (premiered Singapore Film Festival), and Damned, part of an omnibus feature film, (premiered Osaka Asian Film Festival and Hong Kong film festival). More recently, For We Are Strangers, where Adele again played the lead, was selected for competition at the 2015 Busan Film Festival.
Adele explored work behind the camera as writer and producer. Awarded MDA’s script development and short film grant, she wrote, produced and starred in her short, Hanging Gardens.
Shuttling for work between Tokyo and Singapore, Adele published her first book, a pictorial biography Life Beyond the Big Top: Stories of the Tai Thean Kew Circus, supported by the Singapore Memory Project. It will be available in bookstores from the 2nd quarter of 2016. This is the first of a series of projects based on her grandparents’ accounts as performing heirs to a Malayan-Chinese family circus.
Adele was also awarded the National Art Council’s Art Creation Fund for literature to produce a fictionalized novel and MDA’s script development grant for a screenplay revolving around the circus.
Connecting with people is her passion and sending effective messages across, her objective – this makes her an effective host. She hosts a range of events from medical (Parkway Health), technology (ITMA), corporate (OCBC and Citigold) as well as roadshows (CTC Travel), and is a role-play actor for corporate training.
On a personal level, Adele writes about her living and traveling experiences in Japan at https://adelewong.wordpress.com and is passionate about gender issues, animal rights and intergenerational family stories.
