Terence Cao Guohui (born 6 October 1967) is a Singaporean television actor and a contracted artiste under MediaCorp.

Biography[edit]

Cao studied at Anglo-Chinese School for both his primary and secondary education.[1] Cao used to be a flight attendant and joined Singapore Broadcasting Corporation (later MediaCorp) in 1989 after completing the 9th drama training course. Apart from acting in several Channel 8 television drama series, Cao has also performed the theme songs for some of the series he starred in and has also acted in some television films.

Cao has also been featured as one of the Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes in the annual Star Awards in 1994, 1998,1999, 2000, 2001, 2004 and 2005. In 2011, he clinched the Best Supporting Actor in the Star Awards 2011.

Personal life[edit]

In November 2012, it was reported in the local media that Cao had an alleged affair with a Shanghainese lady in 2010. The woman went on to bear his child in China and flew to Singapore to look for him. After a DNA test, the rumours were confirmed: Cao is the biological father of the then 20-month-old girl.[2]
