Having won many hearts playing romantic heroes in Singaporean dramas for the most part of his career, Malaysian actor Christopher Lee now aims to tickle your funny bones with his portrayal of a blue collar worker in HBO Asia Original series Workers.

Workers is a six-episode series based on a best-selling novel of the same name and stars Lee as a happy-go-lucky iron welder named Ming-Qi, who is regarded as a daydreamer due to his penchant for coming up with get-rich-quick schemes.
