Career

Yeo was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award in 2009. He garnered critical acclaim for his role as the unscrupulous, wealthy young villain Ye Rende in The Ultimatum despite the lukewarm reviews the series received. At the 2010 Star Awards he won the audience poll for the Most Memorable Villain and was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor.[1] After graduating from NTU he signed with MediaCorp as a full-time artiste.

In August 2014, felt underrated, he left MediaCorp, but continued to take on ad-hoc acting jobs. In 2015, he joined Scoot and is presently a full-time commercial pilot. He has said that he would be happy to return to acting should the opportunity arise.[2]
