A short video about AADB especially for actors looking to join. Wendy Ho, one of the founders of AADB, explains how it works and the benefits of AADB for actors, producers, casting agents, crew and post production freelancers. Anyone wishing to join AADB should watch this intro video:

Job Site for Entertainment Industry

Actors Asia Database or AADB is a job site for the entertainment industry in Singapore – it connects actors, producers, directors, production companies, casting agents, crew and post production personelle. It was established primarily to help Singapore actors find work and for producers and directors in Singapore to find actors. Actors are notoriously difficult to find and get in contact with; on AADB every actor has a profile page with all contact information and an easy to use internal email system so producers, directors and casting agents can easily contact them anytime.

AADB was established in 2005 and has become the leading talent database in the region. If you’re an actor, voice actor, crew member, director, writer, producer looking for work in Singapore or regionally – join AADB now.

Please do read our other pages to get an idea about how AADB works – or contact us if you have any questions.

Thanks for reading! And hope you join our rapidly growing community!

    Hi I am looking for healthy active individuals age between 45-50 for a short TVC Commercial. May I know where can I post this? Thank you.

  2. AADB Admin says:

    Hi Fionn, just join as a Production Company and then go to MY ACCOUNT. Click on Create a Profile and then choose AUDITIONS as the category – you can then create your audition. Alternately you can just look through the talents and contact them individually for audition. To join just click on NEW MEMBER SIGN UP.

  3. AADB Admin says:

    You most certainly can join AADB, however, it’s mostly for auditions in SIngapore so if you’re based in Australia that might be a bit difficult.

    Hi, I am really interested in acting and being in the acting industry but I do not have experience although I have join a drama cca when I was in secondary school and I am unsure if I cut out to be an actress as I have stage fright. May I know how I am able to overcome this fear or what should I do? Thank you

  5. R says:

    Hi, can I work as a part time extra?

  6. AADB Admin says:

    Yes of course – we have an extras or calefare subscription. There isn’t a lot of money for working as an extra but it’s great experience and it’s a good start for any career in this industry.

  7. AADB Admin says:

    Every actor has fears and anxiety – some get so nervous they vomit before live performances! Don’t worry about this. The best way to get over this is to do more plays and classes in acting. You can try Centre stage school of the arts or Haque Academy in Singapore.

  8. Zack says:

    Hello!, I’m am interested in relocating to Asia early next year to continue my goal to become an Action/Martial Arts/Stuntman/Acton/Choreographer. I was told by overseas connections that places like Singapore could do with white skinned action stunt men/Actors. I currently live in London/UK and Is there a way i can provide my show reel to someone directy for further feedback?

  9. joan says:

    my face is not flawless and i do have freckles on my face too. With this kind of face i have, can i still join ?

  10. AADB Admin says:

    Of course- there will always be make up in any production AND don’t assume that we always want to cover freckles.

  11. AADB Admin says:

    We developed AADB to help connect all the disciplines in the arts. You may want to join and put up your profile online perhaps as an actor / stuntman. Add your showreel and then you can contact production companies through the site. You should always have your profile online as this sort of requirement is usually on a as needs basis for most production companies.

  12. desiree says:

    hi! im 12 this year. my face looks flawless and im wearing spectacles. so, is it still possible to act?? and by the way, im insterested in being a calefare, may i ask you hows the pay like? thanks

  13. AADB Admin says:

    Of course anyone can be an actor – the industry is looking for anyone of all shapes and sizes. There isn’t much pay in acting let alone calefare but it’s usually not really about the money if you’re getting into acting 😉

  14. AADB Admin says:

    Yes, there are new comers on AADB all the time. I suggest you take some acting classes. You could try Centre Stage School of the Arts or HAQUE academy. Then sign up to AADB under the actors action package – there’s a two week free trial at the moment and put your profile under the NEWCOMER category. You can then start submitting your profile to auditions. Or wait for people to call you. Make sure you have good photos too. Photos are your business card in acting.

  15. AADB Admin says:

    AADB charges actors $150 per year to be on the site. The actors on AADB generally get more than enough from their work to continue on the site every year. There is no other commission or extra charges taken when you get a job through AADB.

    Hi, How do I sign up? And where do I go to fill in the form?

    Just click on NEW MEMBER SIGN UP. And if you’re an actor – you must choose: “Action Package – Actor / Voice Actor Annual Subscription”. It’s free to try for 2 weeks so you can understand the system. Once you’ve logged in – go to MY ACCOUNT and click on CREATE A PROFILE. Choose the right actor category eg “Female Adult” and then click SUBMIT. You will then have a form to fill out to create your profile.

  20. AADB Admin says:

    You can sign up to AADB to look for talents or put up an audition notice. It’s ok that there is little to no money – just indicate that on the audition notice.

  21. AADB Admin says:

    We don’t have a specific category for stuntmen but you can join as an actor and write in your bio about the stunts that you’re able to do. When you create your profile – put it under the category of NEWCOMER. It would be good if you included a video in your profile to show what you can do.

    Hi, i’m a Malaysian who is currently working in Singapore.. I have a passion for performing arts (mainly acting)

    i’m 24 and a bit on the skinny side, of eurasian decent (great grandad was irish)

    taking inspiration from Johnny Depp and Jim Carrey, I really grew up with their movies and constantly mimmick their actions while trying constantly to develop my own style.

    I have never acted on anything besides school plays

    so I have no experience, but willing to dive head first into any role, be it as an extra or even a voice actor.

  41. Taneya Sharma says:

    Hi, I am from India and have around 3 years of acting experience in Theatre’s in Mumbai. Currently I am in Singapore and looking for any acting assignment. My english is good. Do I stand any chance to grab any offers?

  42. AADB Admin says:

    Hi Taneya,
    Anyone can stand a chance especially if you’ve had acting experience. Singapore is always looking for new faces and if your english is good that’s a real plus. You can join the site for a 2 week free trial and put up your profile. Many directors will contact you directly through the site once you have a profile up with photos. Just click on NEW MEMBER SIGN UP and choose the ACTORS ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION.

  43. AADB Admin says:

    This is a site for actors to put up their profiles – so do go ahead and join and add your profile to the Male Actor category. Then fill in your profile with as much info about your experience and training and of course add good photos of yourself. You can then start applying for auditions – there are more than 90 auditions per month. Just click on NEW MEMBER SIGN UP to join (then choose ACTORS ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION – it’s normally $150 per year but free for the first two weeks with no obligation to join).

  44. AADB Admin says:

    This site is for you to create a profile so you can be found by directors, producers etc. To join just click on NEW MEMBER SIGN UP and then select ACTOR / VOICE ACTOR ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION – there’s a free two week trial so you can try it out first. Once you’ve joined you should create a profile or bio for yourself under the right category (eg FEMALE ADULT) and you can start applying for auditions. Often, once you have your profile up, directors and producers will contact you directly through the site.

  45. AADB Admin says:

    If you have little experience you may want to try as an extra or calefare first. You can join under that category – just click on NEW MEMBER SIGN UP – then choose Extras / Calefare Subscription.

  46. AADB Admin says:

    Braces can sometimes be a positive thing – every type of person is needed for different shows, ads etc. Sometimes directors will be looking specifically for someone with braces… other times not. But there certainly will be opportunities for you.

  47. AADB Admin says:

    I’m really sorry we don’t take instalments or cash. Sorry for the inconvenience but it costs us too much to enable cash handling. We advise you purchase a pre-paid debit card to pay.

  48. AADB Admin says:

    Hi Jiahui – we don’t actually review resumes – we are not the casting agent – we serve as a website for you to put up your resume online so that directors and producers can find you when they need you. You can try it for free for 2 weeks – just click on NEW MEMBER SIGN UP and select ACTORS ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION. Then create your profile in the correct category eg (FEMALE ADULT) and start submitting your resume to appropriate auditions.
