Zoe Tay is undoubtedly and deservingly Singapore’s entertainment icon since winning Star Search in 1988. She made a career switch from a top model to a full time actress and has played the female lead in countless television dramas of numerous genres. Her breakthrough came in 1991 when she was cast as a materialistic and vindictive woman in “Pretty Faces”, a serial in which she stamped her mark with her versatility and sex appeal.

The undisputed ‘Queen of Caldecott Hill’ has certainly lived up to her status, having been voted the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes in the annual Star Awards for 10 consecutive years since its inception in 1994 and became the first female artiste to receive the prestigious All-Time Favourite Artiste Award in 2004.

The media darling who continues to grace many a magazine cover, became the first local female artiste to launch a coffee table book, ‘Zoe’s Pictorial’ in 1995.  Her enormous popularity makes her a hot favourite amongst casting directors and producers, a fact proven by the high ratings of every drama serial Zoe is in, including the acclaimed “The Unbeatables” series, Singapore’s only drama trilogy. 

Zoe clinched the Best Actress award in 2019, 2017 & 1996 Star Awards for her stellar performance in “A Million Dollar Dream”, “You Can Be An Angel 2” & “Golden Pillow”. She was also awarded the Special Achievement Award in 1998 for her illustrious career and contribution to the local scene.  Her outstanding performance in “You Can Be An Angel 2”, “The Ultimatum” and “Home Affairs” has also earned her nominations for Best Drama Performance by an Actress at the Asian TV Awards in 2017, 2009 & 2000 respectively.

Beyond her acting duties, Zoe has also engaged in charitable activities with global and local organisations such as World Vision and Singapore Council of Women's Organisations (SCWO). In 2018, Zoe launched a charity campaign “You Can Say No” with SCWO with a video on Domestic Violence which was telecast on Mediacorp TV channels as well as on YouCanSayNo.sg. And in 2019 June, a talk show on Date Rape was held on Facebook live.

In 2014, Zoe added another accolade to her impressive list of achievements when she was immortalized as a wax figure and joined the Madame Tussauds Singapore celebrity hall of fame.
