Abigail Yeo Senior Account Manager, Beauty My favourite movie of all time is… “Titanic, as cliched as it sounds. I was young and with a runtime of 190 minutes, the movie was very long so it was totally worth its ticket price. Of course, the romantic story of Rose and Jack was also very captivating for a secondary school student!” Phyllicia Wang Assistant Photographer My favourite movie of all time is… “In The Mood For Love. It’s a classic masterpiece that keeps inspiring me with its beautiful cinematography and intimate love story. Also, Maggie Cheung’s selection of qipaos in the film is so stunning, I couldn’t take my eyes off them!” Hesta Foong Head of Publishing Services My favourite movie of all time is… “Harry Potter, all of them! The overall story is filled with mystery and set in a world…

NATALIE PORTMAN & CLAIRE DANES While we can’t imagine another actress starring opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet, Claire’s role first belonged to Natalie. However, producers decided she was too young in the end. ANNE HATHAWAY & KATHERINE HEIGL Oscar-winner Anne was originally cast in romantic comedy Knocked Up before Katherine took over. She reportedly dropped out because of the graphic pregnancy scene at the end of the movie. RUSSELL CROWE & HUGH JACKMAN The director’s first choice to play Wolverine in X-Men was Russell but scheduling conflicts got in the way. The role then went to fellow Aussie, Hugh, who’s since made the character an icon. ZHANG ZIYI & LI BINGBING Bingbing starred as the lead in little-known film Snow Flower and the Secret Fan after Ziyi quit to focus on another movie. We doubt…

The Asian remake of The Bridge has thrown up plenty of surprises since it was announced that streaming service Viu would be recreating the Swedish-Danish crime thriller, and this includes casting actress Rebecca Lim in its leading role. The princess of Singapore TV, Rebecca rarely chooses roles that require her to be anything other than the relatable girl-next-door. Her turn as Detective Serena Teo is taking the actress into unchartered waters as the character requires her to be blunt, straight-talking and socially awkward. “In recent years, I’ve been playing very likeable characters and TJ Lee [the co-director] thought this role would be a challenge for me since she’s quite difficult to like,” explains the 32-year-old star. “He said there was a very fine line between being annoying and having poor communication…

The Festival Flourisher Nicole Ong, 40, Marketing & Partnerships Director, Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) While filmmakers bring life, culture and art to our daily lives, it is film festivals that help spread these stories to audiences around the world.

I make sure that the festival gets heard,” says Nicole, who moonlights as a photographer on the side. “It’s also my role to look at how we are able to change…
