Vivian Lai made her entry into the Singapore television scene with much fanfare. As the winner of Singapore Star Search '99 and the All-Asian Star Search ‘99 champion, the poised and eloquent beauty has much to offer.

Her acting debut in Knotty Liaisons, a dramedy about modern love, as an interior designer introduced TV viewers to this fresh faced beauty. Thereafter, Vivian played a gossipy and vain magazine reporter in the sitcom Adam’s Company starring alongside popular Hong Kong star-VJ David Wu.

As with most artistes in their career, there will definitely be a breakthrough role and this for Vivian came when she played the role of Rachel, an independent, ambitious advertising executive in the contemporary drama Three & a Half Women, who only learnt about the love of family and friends after becoming disabled in an accident. Vivian continues to expand the depth and breadth of her acting abilities as she takes on the roles with Love Thy Neighbour, World At Your Feet, Super Senior and The Queen. Her hard work earned her recognition during Star Awards 2012, when she bagged the Best Supporting Actress Award for her role in Love Thy Neighbour. 

In 2006, Vivian has another breakthrough in her career when she hosted her first variety programme Property Classified and since when she has hosted many variety programmes. And her most memorable programmes are Say It and Say It 2. 

Fun-loving and easy-going, Vivian is setting milestones in her acting career for all to enjoy. She successfully ascended to All Time Favourite status in 2015, after getting her 10th Most Popular Female Artiste Award in 2014.

She ventured into the world of bubble tea in 2019, and became the founder of her very own tea label.
