Rayson Tan, a former flight steward, joined the-then SBC station after emerging as the second runner-up in Star Search ’90, Singapore’s bi-annual nationwide talent search. He made his debut in the small screen as a shrewd and unscrupulous young man in “Golden Shenton Way”.

This reticent actor stretches himself by taking on multi-faceted roles.  He was an upright police inspector in “Ladies In Action”, a suave and cool-headed swordsman in the period drama “Web Of Deceit”, a faithful husband in “Courting Trouble”.  Rayson is able to handle such diverse role with ease.

One of the station’s most outstanding character actors, Rayson vowed audiences with his portrayal of a deranged old man in “A Different Life” in 1996, a saga which spanned several eras.  In 1997, Rayson was chosen to act as the World War II anti-Japanese hero Lim Bo Seng in the blockbuster of the year “Price of Peace”. 

In 2000, Rayson teams up with regional actors in the second season of “Master Swordsman Lu Xiao Feng II”, a co-production between Singapore, China and Taiwan.

A very personable person by nature, he teams up with his wife Chen Li Ping, in “City Spy”, giving the show their own dose of fun and cheer, winning the hearts of audiences and critics alike, making it one of the popular variety programmes in Singapore.

His commendable performances as a triad boss in “A Song To Remember” and a loan shark runner from China in “It Takes Two” further earned him Best Supporting Actor nominations at Star Awards 2012 and 2013 respectively.

2014, Rayson has won the Best Supporting Actor in 19th Annual Asian Television Awards, the region's most prestigious industry award.

Recent productions included “Heart To Heart”,  “C.L.I.F. 5” and upcoming drama will be “Happy Prince” which will be released in 2020.
