Cherie Lim — who graduated from the TV station’s ninth drama acting course in 1989 along with Xie Shaoguang and Terence Cao -— was one of the rising starlets of local dramas, acting in Channel 8 series like The Future Is Mine, Sweet Dreams, and Young Justice Bao.
After leaving showbiz in 1994, she worked in public relations and also founded a modelling agency before marrying Singaporean billionaire Peter Lim in 2003. Lim has two children, Kim and Kiat, from an earlier marriage.
Despite being familiar with the limelight as a former model and celebrity, little is seen or heard of Cherie since her marriage. After keeping a low profile for decades, Cherie, now 50, recently explained why in a rare interview with Icon.
