Andrea De Cruz (Chinese: 爱丽) is a Singaporean actress of Eurasian descent.


De Cruz was a psychologist before going into showbiz. Although not from a Chinese-speaking background, she speaks mandarin and has acted in Channel 8 dramas.

Personal life[edit]

De Cruz was educated at CHIJ Katong Convent and studied psychology at San Francisco State University. She is married to fellow MediaCorp actor Pierre Png.

In 2002 De Cruz was a victim of the Slim 10 pills scandal and suffered from liver failure as a result. Png, who was her boyfriend at that time, donated part of his liver. She filed a lawsuit against various distributors of Slim 10 pills and fellow actor Rayson Tan; Tan was later cleared while the distributors were forced to compensate her. De Cruz took a 5-year break from acting and later stated that she has moved on from the incident.[1]
