Adam Chen (born 24 June 1976) is a Singaporean television and film actor.

Early life[edit]

Chen was educated at The Chinese High School and Hwa Chong Junior College.[1] Whilst a civil engineering student at the National University of Singapore he did some modelling and joined Route to Glamour, a talent show organised by SPH MediaWorks. He was offered a contract and joined MediaWorks after graduating.[2]


Before going into acting, Chen worked as a model for numerous print and television commercials in Singapore. He earned himself a role in the Singapore-Hong Kong co-produced TV series Yummy Yummy in 2005, before proceeding to work together with other famous actors such as Nicholas Tse, Dicky Cheung and Li Yapeng in TV series jointly-produced by Singapore and other countries. When SPH MediaWorks closed in 2005, he was transferred to MediaCorp, which SPH had merged with. Chen has also acted in English language TV dramas produced by MediaCorp Channel 5.

Personal life[edit]

In 2002 Chen ventured into business when some friends invited him to join them in setting up a merchandising company. He has since diversified into the food industry and owns two restaurants.[2]
