Mediacorp statement on the passing of artiste Aloysius Pang (冯伟衷)

Singapore, 23 January 2019

Statement in English

“It is with great sadness that Mediacorp conveys our deepest sympathies to the family of artiste Aloysius Pang. Aloysius grew up with Mediacorp, starting his career as a child actor in our dramas in 1999. He was named one of the 8 Dukes of Caldecott Hill in 2014, awarded Best Newcomer at Star Awards 2015 and became one of the Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes at Star Awards 2016. Over the years, Aloysius matured as an actor and was recently cast in the lead role of My One in a Million (我的万里挑一), a future drama on Channel 8.

Aloysius was much loved by all who worked with him and extremely popular with fans. He was a highly capable actor who had grown in skill and versatility but remained humble, diligent and ever willing to help others. He will always be remembered for his good-heartedness, his sincere, unaffected earnestness and his professionalism. He showed respect to everyone, especially his elders.

This is a devastating loss and we feel deeply for Aloysius’s family, friends, fans, his colleagues at NoonTalk Media and fellow artistes and teams who worked with him. We will do all we can to support them at this very difficult time.”
