John Tan (JT): Honestly, it never crossed my mind until I was given the opportunity to be part of a theatre production in 2013 and soon after that I was lucky enough to have been given a role in the movie You Mean the World to Me by Saw Teong Hin.

LSA: What do you enjoy about acting?

JT: Getting to experience different emotions throughout the process, like expressing anger, sadness, happiness and so on. Also, playing different kinds of roles and characters.

LSA: Is there somebody who inspires you? Who is that and why?

JT: That would definitely be my mother. She’s brought me up to be the person that I am today.  She’s very understanding and supportive in the choices her children make, and I have a lot of appreciation and respect for that.

LSA: What keeps you going/motivates you to do the best you can?

JT: Meeting different people from different walks of life. Everyday I’m learning and discovering new things. Through this, I am driven to bring out the best in me to achieve my aspirations.

LSA: What do you do for fun? 

Keeping active is essential for my soul. I enjoy any kind of activity that keeps my adrenaline going, so that usually means extreme sports. I am also a wanderluster at heart; exploring the world provides me priceless knowledge and experience.

LSA: How would you describe your personal style?

JT: Minimalistic, I’d say. I love my basics! Simple and stylish, in my opinion.

LSA: Do you like children? Any plans to have your own family soon?

JT: Of course! I’m paying full attention to and focusing on my career, but I don’t see why not at some point in the future.
