The Star Search champ bagged $30,000 on top of his two-year contract. Now housemates with fellow Shanghainese Dai Yangtian, Jeffrey has been cast in Zoe Tay's comeback vehicle, Devotion, where he plays an autistic teen she employs to work in her F&B firm. "I'm very nervous about my debut role because it's very challenging," he tells us. "And also because it's Ah Jie's comeback show, there's a lot of pressure." Is he inspired by Elvin Ng's buzzy turn as an autistic genius in Breakout? "Not really," he says. "[My autism] has no super intelligence." In other words, his character won't be breaking security codes with nothing more than keen observation.
[Jeffrey is also mentioned in Sora's interview.] <Sora Ma.> She's been cast not in a TV drama, but a web series called Game of Love with fellow alums Jeffrey, James and Romeo.
