I remember the first time I saw Shawn Lee on-screen was the movie, 'I Not Stupid' where he acts as the kid who has a really strict mum who wants him to score good grades and was punished whenever he could not get the correct answer. He also acted in Home Run which I think is a rather touching movie.
After he finished acting in the 'I Not Stupid' movies series, we do not get to see him that often on-screen. I think he is able to carry out the roles he play really well and does not make people feel awkward about his acting.
Okay, he has acted in 5 movies, that's cool. But 5 movies in 10 years isn't exactly the kind of stuff you would expect from a supposed up-and-comer like him.
I have to discount his efforts in "Home Run" and "I Not Stupid". He was a child actor. The criteria for child actors are different than those expected of a grown actor in today's media. Now that he's all grown up, I feel that he should do more to market his abilities. During his hosting stint at last year's Young Talents Award, he seemed a little stiff and nervous. Understandably, it was his first time. But it's not his first time in front of a camera.
It would be sad if all he were to be remembered was just 'that kid in "I Not Stupid".
