Herworld magazine describes her as “savvy – and brave - beyond her years”. Albeit her bold demeanor, Izyan is certainly one who is both passionate and dedicated to her craft.

One of Singapore’s brightest child actors, Izyan Mellyna Ishak started acting at the tender age of eight on the widely popular Malay children’s variety programme on Prime 12, Ya Alif!. She has since toured Canada for The Vagina Monologues and Scotland, Edinburgh for the play, The “F” Word which was nominated for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award. Her dedication to the craft and sense of humour made her one of the most unassuming character actors in the country.

In 2013, Izyan lead the cast for the hit TV series, Walimah, which also successfully ran a second season in 2014. The same year, Izyan was nominated for Best Actress & Best Newcomer in Suria's Pesta Perdana 2014. In 2013 too, her dedication shines through as she beat over a hundred candidates to play the lead of Yasmin Muhammad in the feature film, Banting. Banting saw sold out seats in almost all of their screenings in cinemas in late October 2014 and is also the first commercial Malay film produced since the 1970s, by Papahan Films. In 2016, Izyan was in Lakibini #3, the final installation of the LakiBini series at the Drama Centre. Izyan will also be in the upcoming Meet The MP, a Channel 5 drama.

“If you love your job, then you'll never feel like you're working a single day in your life”. That's exactly how Izyan feels being in this industry over the years. Acting and performing gives her a sense of comfort and fulfilment that she could not seem to find elsewhere. She constantly seeks new adventures, greater opportunities and looks forward to forging new friendships and to build strong bonds with other artistes to be able to establish a support system and grow together in this industry.
