SINGER El­iz­a­beth Tan will be knock-knockin’ on tele­vi­sion screens on July 31, as she is set to ap­pear in As­tro Ria’s up­com­ing drama series ti­tled My Dar­ling In­spec­tor Daniel.

Play­ing the role of a model named Maya Adri­ana, this marks her sec­ond act­ing gig, af­ter her sil­ver screen de­but in the 2015 Usop Wilcha: Menghon­jang Makhluk Muz­ium, di­rected by Mamat Khalid.

The Knock-Knock singer is thrilled to be given the role, and an­nounced it on her In­sta­gram ac­count.

Post­ing a pic­ture of her­self hold­ing the script with the Kuala Lumpur sky­line in the back­ground, the cap­tion said: “Lizzy ada pengu­mu­man! Lizzy skrg tngh shoot satu megadrama utk As­tro! Thank you so much to @skop­pro­duc­tion­s_of­fi­cialsbb per­caya dgn Lizzy utk jadi Maya Adri­ana dan sbb bg I pelu­ang be­sar sngt mcm ni. Ah­h­h­hhh I still mcm .... tak per­caya I dpt buat ni. Ner­vous, ex­cited, happy, takut, se­mua pun ada.”

(I have an an­nounce­ment. I am cur­rently on set to film a megadrama for As­tro! Thank you so much to @skop­pro­duc­tions of­fi­cials for trust­ing me with the role of Maya Adri­ana and for giv­ing me this huge op­por­tu­nity. I still can’t be­lieve it! I’m ner­vous, ex­cited, happy, scared all at once!)

“The cool part about this was that the pro­duc­tion team had me in their mind to play Maya Adri­ana. So, of course, I said yes!

“I love act­ing. I don’t have any words to ex­press how happy I am right now.

“When I was younger, I used to watch dra­mas star­ring Aaron Aziz. I’ve al­ways hoped to meet and act be­side him some day. And my dream has come true as Aaron plays the male lead in this drama!” said Tan when con­tacted by the New Straits Times re­cently.

The 23-year-old artiste said she’s warm­ing up to the idea of ap­pear­ing in more TV dra­mas. “Be­fore this I was ap­pre­hen­sive be­cause my Malay wasn’t that great.

“But I think my Malay has im­proved. I made sure to get the script way in ad­vance so that I could prac­tise and give my best on set. I think ev­ery­thing is go­ing well.

“I’m hop­ing to re­main on this side of the in­dus­try for as long as I can. I also hope that af­ter this drama, I will be of­fered a va­ri­ety of roles,” said Tan who is record­ing two sin­gles, one in English and the other in Malay.

El­iz­a­beth Tan will play Maya Adri­ana in ‘My Dar­ling In­spec­tor Daniel’.
