The annual Asian TV Awards, in its 19th edition this year, celebrates excellence in TV production and performance in programmes across Asia.
Nabbing the Best Actress award was adorable Malaysian child star Puteri Balqis Azizi, seven, who won for the Malay telemovie Balqis. She beat fellow nominees such as Taiwanese actress Tien Hsin, China-born American actress Joan Chen and Singapore’s Rui En.
Acting since the age of two, Puteri said sweetly that winning was “unbelievable”, which prompted everyone in the audience to coo and laugh.
