Pan Ling Ling is a veteran actress who joined the former SBC in 1988 after graduating from its 8th Drama Artiste Training Course. With her entry into the circle, she has since brought forth a trend of oriental-beauty incandescence onto our screens, radiating her own brand of charm and elegance. 

In 1991, Ling Ling played the female lead in the 130-episode series “Women of Substance”, MediaCorp TV's first ever location filming in China. Her portrayal as an immigrant who perseveres despite extreme hardship won her rave reviews. In 1992, Ling Ling made headlines when she became the first MediaCorp (TCS) artiste to star in a regional movie. She played a psychoanalyst opposite international superstar Jackie Chan in “Crime Story”.

Besides acting, Ling Ling is also a competent host and was one of the wacky comperes in MediaCorp’s best-loved variety show, “City Beat”. In addition to that, Ling Ling was also responsible for feeding the audience their weekly capsules of entertainment news in “Entertainment Beat”.

However, it was in 2008 when Ling Ling probably re-established herself when she was cast in “The Little Nyonya”, a storyline with a Peranakan setting that spans over 70 years starting in the 1930s. This serial recorded the highest rating in local TV history to date since 1994. After 2 decades, Ling Ling’s hard work and perseverance finally paid off when she won her first acting award at Star Awards ‘11 for her performance as a kept woman in the blockbuster “Breakout”. She was also Highly Commended at the Asia Television Awards 2011 for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for this same role. 

In 2013, Ling Ling was diagnosed with breast cancer and stopped work for 10 months to undergo surgery and treatment. The ever optimistic and strong-willed actress returned to television and acting a year later when her cancer was in remission to star in her first English language role in the police drama “Mata Mata 2”. Subsequently, she is also cast as the main lead for Channel 8 long form drama 118 & 1182 whereby a total of 465 episodes are telecast between Oct 2014 and Sep 2017.

In 2018, Ling Ling was once again cast as the lead for the 150-episode long form drama “Reach for the Skies”. Her popularity soared after involving 3 long form dramas from 2015-2018. And in 2018 & 2019, she won the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artiste in “Star Awards” consecutively again.

A truly resilient and enigmatic actress, Ling Ling continues to work her craft with passion and energy.
