Julie Tan


“Gonna Make It”‘s opening scene showed the female protagonist, Su Xiao Xiao,  played by Julie Tan, being released from prison. She is playing the role of a 不良少女.

Come on, Julie looks too nice to be a convict from prison!

In the next 15 minutes or so, she bumps into her wayward old friends (Edwin Goh), a possible love interest (Xu Bin), gets a hair cut and a purple dye job on her nape and makes her way back home to her grandparents.

In the first episode, you can catch Bryan Wong shaving his head.
Though it’s not really a Star Award worthy moment like Cynthia Koh’s shave from Tofu Street,
it’s still a novelty and noteworthy.

Hair Shaving has such a significant impact and meaning to different people.
Wonder what he felt after the scene was done. Hmm.

Julie did not do too badly. She was actually the 1st runner up title.

Julie and Elvin Ng in “It’s a Wonderful Life”  好运到 in 2012.

3. Long Sleek School Girlish and China Doll Style


4. Wavy and Tousled Mid Length Sultry Office Lady Style


She looks so poor thing here! Her acting is impressive! She conveys the character through her eyes and body language.

In my opinion, she had an excellent stellar performance in Unridde 2: http://entertainment.xin.msn.com/en/celebrity/buzz/asia/unriddle-2-the-good-bad-and-questionable?page=5 – See more at: http://singpost.blogspot.sg/2013/08/julie-tan-jiu-mei-from-that-girl-in.html#sthash.IXVvfRG4.dpuf

Her acting was spell-binding and made me believe she was the real character in the show.
The role called for extreme changes in her facial, mood and body expressions as
she was cast as a girl with a bi-polar disorder who is both mute and deaf.

She was also known as “Jiu Mei” or “九妹” for a while when the drama serial  “A Song To Remember” was airing on tv in Singapore.

She was so well known as the character that even the local news media used her character name as a headliner. “Jiu Mei escapes death!”
