In 2015, Bonnie starred the drama Second Chance 流氓律师 and then went on to star in the drama entitled Tiger Mum, alongside Huang Biren, Yao Wen Long, Julie Tan, Ian Fang and Aloysius Pang. It was her first leading role in a local drama, and her outstanding performance in the drama earned her numerous praises from the audience. She has recently finished filming Crescendo 起飞, a Channel 8 Drama by WaWa Productions, taking the role as the younger version of Cynthia Koh's character. The drama will air on Channel 8 in October 2014. She is also filming the next form drama, "Life - Fear Not" 人生无所畏, slated to start in Aug 2015. She is cast for an upcoming Channel 8 drama, "House of Fortune" 钱来运转, which is set to air in January 2016.

In 2016, Bonnie landed a role in Mediacorp TV Channel 8’s mid-year blockbuster drama "The Dream Job", acting as Rebecca Lim's physically disabled younger sister.

Her remarkable progress and performance in "Tiger Mum" as Chen Huiyan earned her a Best Supporting Actress nomination in the Star Awards 2016.

She was guest star for The Sheng Siong Show on June 9. On 13 July, she performed at the PAssion Pop Concert, part of the People's Association's PAssion Around The Bay. She appeared as special guest during the finals of Hey Gorgeous, a campus talent search on 15 July.

Subsequently, Loo was signed to one of Asia's key music labels, S2S Pte. Ltd., thus becoming the first winner of Campus SuperStar to be signed to a record label.[4] During an interview, Loo mentioned that she would take a break from her studies and embark on her singing career after completing her GCE O-Level examinations.[5]

Subsequently, Bonnie uploaded a music video of "未知数”, the song which earned her the Best Theme Song nomination for the Star Awards in 2016.
