Once the media tour of The LKY Musical stage set at the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands ended yesterday, former MediaCorp actress and host Sharon Au immediately approached veteran actor Adrian Pang to wipe his sweat and clung onto his arm for the entire press conference, as if she was living out the role of Mrs Lee Kuan Yew (Mdm Kwa Geok Choo) and tending to her husband in the upcoming musical.

Though it’s been 10 years since Adrian and Sharon last collaborated (they co-starred in Jack Neo’s romantic comedy I Do I Do in 2005), the pair have not lost their chemistry, in fact, they seemed to have grown closer while working on the musical.

During the interview with Toggle, 49-year-old Adrian, who plays Singapore’s founding Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew, let on that Sharon makes him honey drinks every day during rehearsals. He added, “My (real) wife Tracie makes ginger tea for me every day. I bring it to work, but [Sharon] forces me [to drink] honey everyday.”

When asked if this is part of her method acting, Sharon immediately shook her head and said, “It’s not! I genuinely feel that he needs it to keep his voice in good condition.”

“He has a lot of lines and songs to sing [in the musical]. When he stops, [in] not more than three seconds, I’m already there, ready to feed him honey,” the 39-year-old chuckled.
