He joined the then Television Corporation of Singapore (TCS) as an actor, appearing in several locally made television dramas and became a household name.

《白言》TOY肥料厂对资深艺人白言叔的诚心敬礼。

这部原创独角戏是我们对一位表演艺术奉献60年生命的艺人再次鸣掌,同时也为我团庆祝25周年增添深远唤悟的意义。

来自中国江苏的白言自小就对表演艺术赤心沸腾。他从30年代就开始缤纷灿烂的表演生涯,与银月歌舞团到华南地区巡回演出。白言叔后来选择新加坡为家,并且为本地表演艺术圈献上了精彩的演出和宝贵的经验。白言后来加入新加坡电视机构,参与多部本地电视制作,对新加坡的演艺界的贡献是无价崇高的。新加坡电视机构在白言光荣的退休之前,颁发终身成就奖给这位国宝级演员。

原创独角戏《白言》由吴文德编剧及导演,温伟文倾情演出。
