They have the looks and street cred. Beyond that, they’re multi-talented, having conquered the red carpet and taken ownership of social media. They act, host, sing, direct and produce. In this celebrities’ edition of 20 Good Men of 2020, Her World presents a talent-stacked list who are making their mark in Singapore, China, Taiwan and India.

Who knew that musician-actor Gavin Teo had such a ripped bod until he bared it all in his first lead role this year in the popular Mandarin swim drama Victory Lap on MeWatch?

And let’s just say his shirtless selfies on Instagram have drawn as much praise as the vocals he lent to the show’s soundtrack.

And we’ll be seeing more of him. The Noontalk artiste is now busy filming his first local English drama that will air next year.

His claim to fame was joining Channel U’s 2013 talent-scouting competition, Hey Gorgeous, where he was one of the Top 12 finalists.

His boy-next- door appeal and musical talent opened the door to acting.

He credits what he has achieved to his family. “I wouldn’t be here if they hadn’t urged me to go on Hey Gorgeous!” says the youngest of three siblings.

Although the acting gigs came pouring in after the competition, music was never far from his mind.

This year, fans saw the self- taught guitarist performing on several segments of Noontalk’s Covid-19 entertainment series, Let’s Get Live, on social media. And he’s taking his music career to the next level.

“I’m actually doing a bit of ‘homework’ now with the audio engineers at Noontalk and on set,” he reveals.

“I want to produce tracks for films in the future, so I’m always ready to learn as much as I can.”
