Career[edit]

In August 2009, Kok starred in My Buddy as the first female lead, alongside established actors Christopher Lee and Aileen Tan. In the same year, she played Huang Jinhao in the Channel 8 blockbuster drama, Together The role of Jinhao was originally intended for Fiona Xie but it went to Eelyn when Fiona was unable to take the role due to personal reasons.

Kok appeared in two dramas in 2010, Precious Babes and The Family Court. She also starred in the 2011 year-end anniversary series A Song To Remember opposite Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu.
