“My New Years resolution for 2021 was actually to do nothing because I got so busy during the breaker in 2020, I felt like I should have rested. For me, #donothing meant a mindset shift, from not using “busy” as a measure of my self-esteem. I’ve always been a very curious and passionate person, so instead of being guided by all the things I wanted to do, I allowed myself times when I had no plan. It turned out that the year was just as busy, but I took time for myself, which was different from 2020,” Peh said, looking back on the past year.
It was perhaps a convenient coincidence that she had no acting plans in 2021. “If there’s one thing I’ve missed, it’s acting. I hope something thing will happen this year,” she said.
She also revealed that being a self-directed actor in Singapore can be very passive, work-wise. “Many assume I have offers piled in and can choose, but the Singapore TV and film industry works differently, and so the reality is that I have to wait for an executive producer to think I’m fit. to a role before I had the chance to act,” she explained.
Not one to rest on his laurels or wait for things to happen, Peh decided to take a more active role in his work. For 2022, she hopes to start personal interest-based projects.
“A drama mini-series or a seasonal podcast perhaps – and I am looking for interested partners to collaborate and take it further. Find my email on my Instagram account if anyone wants to discuss this further please! she joked.
