Crowdsourced rankings website, Ranker, has named Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong among the most famous actors in the country.

According to its website, Ranker is a top online destination for crowdsourced rankings on a variety of topics that uses the opinions of millions of users to curate a comprehensive rankings source.

PM Lee is the only politician on Ranker’s list of famous actors in Singapore. A screenshot of PM Lee occupying a spot on the list is circulating on social media and messaging platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp:

While PM Lee has never acted as a character in film, television or theater, he has several productions credits to his name from television shows and documentaries he has taken part in.

His IMDb page shows that the PM appeared on the Good Morning Britain television show in 2018 and on the Kenny on Sunday show in 2013, besides his appearances in the television documentary called Aija No Mirai and the documentary, Inside Job.

Archive footage of PM Lee has also been used in the documentary 1987: Untracing the Conspiracy and in the 2018 television series, Credlin and Outsiders. It is certainly curious that PM Lee’s appearances on film and television as himself would earn him a spot among the most famous actors in Singapore. -/TISG
