Aloysius Pang, Russian babe magnet

The actor was approached by female college students several times while filming ‘From Beijing to Moscow’ overseas


Aloysius was approached by female college students “five or six times”

Well, Aloysius’s mum needn’t have worried so much about her son, because as he reported to us, he essentially spent most of his free time cooped up in his hotel room letting his creative juices flow. “I had my laptop with me so I was constantly writing a lot of things,” he said. “I don’t know why, but I even wrote rap and song lyrics!”

Aloysius went on to share that he’s been “looking at doing more things aside from just acting”, all of which are related to behind-the-scenes and production work. At the time of our conversation, he revealed that he had already penned 50 to 60 short film scripts, 35 to 40 of which were done during his two months abroad.

When we asked why he didn’t join the rest of the cast and crew on their sightseeing expeditions (work hard, play hard, right?), he shrugged and said, “Whenever they asked me to go with them, I would say, ‘Google lah, you’ll see enough’. I’m a terrible traveller, that’s all I can say! (Laughs)”

Instead, this undeniable introvert preferred to walk around city areas by himself. It was during his solitary explorations in Irkutsk, Russia that he made a pleasantly surprising discovery: that Russian girls dig Asian guys (or at least, Asian guys that look like Aloysius Pang).

He proved to be particularly popular among university students, who were open enough to approach him and try to chat him up, albeit “in a bunch of Russian I couldn’t understand”. “They would just talk until they realised there’s a language barrier, then laugh and go away,” he said, feigning a crestfallen expression. “To be honest I don’t even know if they were trying to pick me up because I didn’t know what they were saying, but it felt like a pick-up to me. (Laughs)”

Aloysius estimated that he got hit on “five or six times”, and quickly clarified that he “didn’t get it on” (if you know what we mean) with anyone. Still, he quipped, “I think I have a market there, so if I fail in Singapore, I’ll go to Russia!”

Despite not doing many touristy things, it looks like Aloysius still managed to snap some touristy shots
