Michelle Chong is known as one of Singapore’s most versatile and bilingual artistes and an award- winning multi-hyphenate who has hosted and acted in countless English and Chinese television programmes.

Not contented with just being in front of the camera, in 2011, Michelle set up her own production company, Huat Films, and produced, wrote, directed and starred in her own movie, Already Famous, which became one of the top 10 highest-grossing Chinese movies in Singapore that year and was selected as Singapore’s entry for Best Foreign Film at the 85th Academy Awards (Oscars) in 2013.
In 2013, Michelle produced and directed her second movie, 3 Peas in a Pod, a coming-of-age road trip movie filmed in Australia which won rave reviews.
Her third movie, Lulu The Movie, was released in Nov 2016 and hit over S$2 million at the box office, making it one of the top 6 Chinese movie with the highest box office in Singapore.
Michelle also founded Left Profile, an exclusive boutique artiste management agency which manages two of the top TV hosts in Singapore. Her tenacity and talent make her arguably Singapore’s most prized entertainer and now, entrepreneur, as she hopes to inspire more Singaporeans to pursue their passion and follow their dreams.
