After a six-month hiatus from television, Joanne Peh will return as a materialistic and unscrupulous model in the upcoming rom-com Ch 8 drama series, A Tale of Two Cities.
Sharing the screen with Rui En, for the first time, Joanne’s experience with her fellow Caldecott Hill Princess has been nothing short of pleasant and comfortable. The NTU graduate revealed in an interview with xinmsn that an unspoken understanding and rapport had formed between the both of them though the two starlets share little onscreen time together.
“She’s a woman of little words and we can click pretty well whenever there’s a common topic shared between us. We won’t try to intentionally create talking points but that’s not to say we are aloof and cold around each other,” said the 28-year-old on their “hard to come by” chemistry at work.
A Tale of Two Cities debuts on Valentines’ Day 2011.
