On the surface, Shawn seems to be a rather ordinary looking boy. But it seems that when he puts his heart to it, this boy is a talent. While he first debuted in the hit movie series "I not stupid" by Jack Neo, he always struck me as the boy who was a little silly looking, almost like -in Singaporean terms - a "Blur Sotong", but at the same time having a somewhat youthful appearance that demanded notice from the audience.
Compared the Joshua, he doesn't look sleek and tough - he's the entire opposite with the boy next door look. His eyes seem to be able to adapt to the role that he plays. In I not stupid, his eyes give off this sense of innocence that won me over. In his subsequent film, Home Run, also a Jack neo feature, his eyes were desperate and sad in most scenes, making me love his pitiful expression and his ability to portray emotions so well.
He deserves more roles, I haven't seen him featured in any recent films.
