Ms Peh Wei Siew Joanne  
Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information
B.Comm.Studies / Class of 2006


Leading light of the local entertainment scene  

In recognition of her achievement in reaching the pinnacle of the local entertainment industry, Nanyang Technological University is proud to present Ms Peh Wei Siew Joanne with the Nanyang Alumni Achievement Award.

One of the leading lights in local broadcaster MediaCorp’s stable of artistes, Ms Peh was still an undergraduate when she became a celebrity. She shot to fame after charming the audience – and talent-spotters – with her eloquence and fresh-faced beauty during the finals of the Miss Singapore Universe 2002 pageant, where she won the titles of Miss Elegance and Miss Personality.

Having signed up with MediaCorp, the newcomer was soon receiving accolades for her performances on Channel 8, taking home the Most Popular Newcomer award and the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award at the Star Awards 2004, an annual award ceremony for TV personalities. The awards – earned as she ably juggled studies with her budding acting career – proved to be the first of many Star Awards for the actress, who joined MediaCorp full-time after her graduation. Ms Peh was also awarded the Nanyang Outstanding Young Alumni Award in 2006.

One of Ms Peh’s defining performances, as the kindhearted but unfortunate Yuzhu in the hit The Little Nyonya, saw her win her first Best Actress award in 2009. She clinched another Best Actress in 2012 and has won the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award nine times. This year, she achieved the rare feat of being nominated for both the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, and won in the latter category for her role in The Journey: Tumultuous Times, the second-season of a nation-building trilogy. A capable host too, Ms Peh’s trophy haul includes the Best Info-ed Programme Host Award from the Star Awards 2011.

In 2004, Ms Peh made the successful transition from the small screen to the silver screen, scoring a role in Jack Neo’s movie The Best Bet. She followed this up with an appearance in the 2011 festive hit It's A Great Great World. Most recently, she played the lead role in the S$2.8 million production 1965, a tribute to Singapore’s Golden Jubilee.

Her popularity makes her a leading choice for celebrity endorsements – she has lent her image to a myriad of brands like Lux, Jetstar, and Panasonic. Ms Peh is effectively bilingual and her appeal as a brainy beauty also meant she was a natural choice to host a road show promoting the Singapore Exchange real-time investing competition StockWhiz.

Ms Peh actively participated in campus activities as an undergraduate – she was a member of the SCI Committee and Cultural Activities Club.

才貌双全的本地演艺圈佼佼者


白薇秀小姐在本地演艺圈不断攀登新高峰,辉煌成绩有目共睹,南洋理工大学深感自豪,颁予南洋校友成就奖以兹表扬。

这位本地演艺圈公认的领军人物在南大求学期间已是光芒初绽。她参加2002年度新加坡环球小姐选美赛,以绝佳口才和应对能力以及聪慧清新的形象惊艳全场,获封优雅小姐与个性小姐两项殊荣,从此声名大噪。

才刚与新传媒签约不久,这个亮丽新人就凭着八频道上的精彩演出深获好评,在2004年度红星大奖颁奖礼上荣获最佳新人奖与十大最受欢迎女艺人奖。演艺事业萌芽之际,她其实还得兼顾学业,却能从容应付,两方面都游刃有余。2004年所获得的奖项结果证实只是起步而已,毕业后全职加入新传媒,见证了她的演艺生涯就此腾飞。白小姐亦于2006年获颁南洋杰出青年校友奖。

2007年,白小姐等到了她演艺事业上的第一部代表作《小娘惹》。她凭着剧中第二女主角、善良却命运坎坷的玉珠一角,在多位实力派女演员中脱颖而出,拿下2009年红星大奖最佳女主角奖。2012年,她二度封视后,九次蝉联十大最受欢迎女艺人奖。今年度红星大奖,她同时入围最佳女主角和最佳女配角两个奖项,最后凭《信约三部曲》之二“动荡的年代”一剧中短短两集戏,荣获最佳女配角奖。她在主持方面的才华也不遑多让,勇夺2011年红星大奖最佳资讯节目主持人奖。

2004年,白小姐初次尝试从小银幕跃升大银幕,在梁智强电影《突然发财》里扎上一角;随后在2011年演出群星贺岁片《大世界》。最近她最受人瞩目的电影作品是《1965年》,这部耗资280万元的巨作是配合新加坡建国五十年金禧庆典的历史电影,白小姐在剧中担正女主角。

这位深入民心的女主角也是广告商宠儿,知名品牌如Lux 丽士、捷星廉价航空、松下电器,均找她代言。也因其“智慧型美女”气质鲜明,再加上精通双语,让白小姐成了新加坡股票交易所主板的StockWhiz 买卖股票投资大赛理所当然的主持人选。

白小姐在南大求学时期也活跃参与各种活动,曾是传播与信息学院及南大文化活动协会的会员。
