My letter to the Straits Times Life Section on the above matter was published on Staurday 11th October 2014.
I fully endorse Lim Kay Tong to play the role of Singapore’s founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew in the upcoming film 1965.
The veteran actor with his stature, stern look and superb acting skills is well positioned to draw out the unique non-nonsense personality of the politician who is respected by world leaders.
The movie 1965 is timely as it will accord recognition to Mr Lee – the man who turned Singapore, a modest trading country into a vibrant and dynamic nation, and I have every confidence that Lim will rise to the occasion and give a sterling performance.
