Chen Tianwen (Chinese: 陈天文) is a Singaporean actor. He is a veteran television actor who starred in many 1990s dramas, and has appeared in the Cannes Film Festival award-winning Ilo Ilo, The Lion Men and Unriddle 2.

Chen joined the SBC after completing the 5th artiste drama training class and made his debut in 1984. He holds a black belt in taekwondo and his martial arts background led him to being cast in many wuxia dramas during the 1990s and as characters with fight scenes in other drama series. He is also a member of the Singapore Celebrity Soccer Team.[1]

Chen appeared in 2012 and 2013 in the role of Mr. Jin in Ah Boys to Men and Ah Boys to Men 2.

The Straits Times remarked that Chen's "much-praised understated turn" as Teck in the Cannes Film Festival award-winning "Ilo Ilo" 爸妈不在家 once again put Chen in the spotlight.[2]
