Jazreel: Make a comeback? I'm past expiry date

SINGAPORE - I'm way past my expiry date.

This was Jazreel Low's candid yet brutally honest response when asked by The New Paper if she was planning a comeback to showbiz.

The 45-year-old actress-turned-businesswoman stars in local movie Taxi! Taxi!.

She had left showbiz in 1994.

In the movie, which opens tomorrow, Low plays Maggie, a supportive wife to local actor Gurmit Singh's character Chua See Kiat, a retrenched professor who becomes a taxi driver to make endsmeet.

Low was the second runner-up in the inaugural Star Search talent contest in 1988, coming in after winner Zoe Tay and runner-up Aileen Tan, both of whom are still full-time actresses.

Low is now the chief executive of Asmara Lifestyle, a company that runs spas and restaurants.

She revealed that she recommended herself to Taxi! Taxi! director Kelvin Sng when she heard that Gurmit and actor-comedian Mark Lee were attached to this project.

"I wanted to work with these two big stars," she said with a laugh.
