Greetings and salutations, fellow stargazers! This is your Showbiz Sista, investigating the Truth that is Out There with Jeanette Aw and the rest of the cast of Beyond!
Beyond is the new Channel 8 drama that will premiere on Dec 24. It’s the first proper special-effects, sci-fi style show that’s come along in years. The footage, which was shot in Singapore, was even sent off to Moscow for the addition of the special effects.
Basically, Jeanette plays a girl with special powers: She sees people as they really are. This X-ray vision isn’t always a good thing, as she somehow manages to see Rayson Tan with no clothes on.
Li Nanxing stars as a private investigator in search of his missing fiancee (played by Pamelyn Chee). Together, the two track missing persons through portals, wormholes and dimensions they never knew existed.
Pierre Png stars as a psychiatrist who falls for Jeanette and Xiang Yun plays Jeanette’s mother. Beyond also stars Shaun Chen and Jerry Yeo.
How does Jeanette feel about venturing into The Great Beyond? Does she believe in parallel universes? What superpower would she like to have? And what’s with those glasses? Showbiz Sista will let her tell you in her own words!
Catch Beyond starting Dec 24 at 9pm on MediaCorp TV Channel 8. Showbiz Sista, signing out. Live long and pop corn!
