HAVE we seen the last of Barbarella?

With local actress-turned-director Michelle Chong embarking on her second movie – 3 Peas In A Pod – and not being part of the coming season of Channel 5’s parody news sketch show The Noose, does this mean farewell to television’s most famous Sarong Party Girl?

Chong, 35, made a name for herself and The Noose by playing a series of popular characters, including Sarong Party Girl Barbarella and Filipino domestic helper Leticia Bongnino.

However, these characters will not appear in the sixth season of The Noose, which begins on April 2.

At a press conference on Monday to mark the start of filming for 3 Peas In A Pod, when The New Paper asked Chong if she would return to television, she jokingly said: “No, I hope not!”
