Toggling between Taiwan and Singapore for work, he stars as a complicated antagonist in the new English-language drama Third Rail, about a hijacking incident on board an MRT train. He plays the leader of the hijackers. The series is available on meWatch and premieres on Channel 5 on Monday at 9.30pm. Here, he outlines what a perfect day looks like to him.
“On non-working days, I play a bit of video games in the mornings. It’s what I turn to when I’m stressed or need an escape from worldly worries. Now, I’m playing New World, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Amazon Games. I also play Sandbox, which is a blockchain mobile game.
Afterwards, I work out for two to three hours. Gyms are where I find happiness. I do mainly functional bodybuilding – which involves things like kettlebells, box jumps, bodyweight exercises and weights – and muay thai, which I have been doing for about four years.
