Who: Norleena Salim, 41, taking a break in Whitsundays, Australia

Best known for: Playing Rosnah in Channel 5 TV sitcom Under One Roof (1994 - 2001, 2003)

Looking at Norleena Salim now - or Leena, as she prefers to be called - it is hard to believe she played the tubby neighbour Rosnah in iconic TV sitcom Under One Roof. After all, she has reportedly lost about half of her body weight since leaving the show, going from her peak at more than 100kg during her Rosnah days to about 60-plus kg now.

Much of the weight dropped when she was a singer on board the Holland America Line cruise ship for four years from 2006 to 2010, which required her to work seven days a week.

She then returned to Singapore to work on various musical and theatre projects, before relocating to Yangon, Myanmar, to work as the managing editor of media and publishing firm Myanmore.

She now lives in Whitsundays, Australia, with her Australian partner, where she plans to take a break from work for a while.
