In 2007, Andie Chen Bangjun 陈邦鋆 was named champion in the most prestigious talent search competition in Singapore -“Star Search 才华横溢出新秀”.
The same contest gave birth to stars such as Zoe Tay, Christopher Lee and many others. In the 8 categories of the competition, which includes acting,
hosting, singing, martial arts, and dancing, he was given the top ranking in 7 categories and 2nd placing in 1 category.
Within the first year of turning professional, Andie snagged a heavy supporting role in the regionally acclaimed television series “The Little Nonya 小娘惹” .This role secured his place in the region’s television scene as the newbie who is serious about his craft.
For the next 7 years, Andie chose each and every one of his projects based on its merits of improving acting ability.He even based himself in Taiwan for a year to shoot for the highly rated Taiwan Police Series “Independent Heroes 廉政英雄”.
Upon returning to Singapore, he was offered the pivotal role of 洪当勇 in Singapore’s block buster series “The Journey 2: Tumultuous times 信约之动荡的年代” . The series was a big hit and re-introduced Andie as the unique leading man that was lacking in today’s local television industry.
Today in 2015, Andie is playing the leading role Johnny Lee in up coming alternative comedy “绝队保险” and even ventured into theater by challenging the lead role of 周英雄 in “December Rains 雨季”, one of Singapore’s biggest musical to date.
