Remember Elvin Ng’s role as high school counsellor Wu Yanbin (Mr Goh) from 2012 hit drama Don’t Stop Believin’? Well, the actor will be reprising his role and the character will making a special appearance in eight episodes of Channel 8’s new long-form series, Life’s Blessings, which co-stars Felicia Chin as the doppelgänger of Du Siman (Felicia’s character in Don’t Stop Believin’).

Calling it a breeze for him to step into the shoes of Mr Goh again, Elvin said, “I enjoy playing my character, which comes in handy when I’m filming my scenes for the show. Even now, people still call me ‘Mr. Goh, Mr. Goh’ when I walk down the streets.”

“I think I resemble my character in real life. We’re both kind-hearted and the type of guy you won’t have a problem taking home to meet the parents… I’m just kidding, how can anyone boast about themselves like that, right?” Elvin said with a laugh.

It also helps that both Elvin and Felicia are friends who continued to keep in touch after the drama ended. The pair would go on shopping trips together and even share secrets with each other. Don’t be mistaken however, added Elvin, “It isn’t just the two of us, though.”
