After graduating, Ng took up acting full-time, working as a waiter and cook in various restaurants until he started gaining roles in West End and Off West End plays. However, he became dissatisfied with the work he was getting, saying: "I was seen as neither Asian nor Caucasian. Either that or I'm cast in stereotyped roles." In 2002, Ng took a six-month break from acting, working as a scuba diving instructor in Thailand.

Since 2000 he has appeared in a number of films, including Heat Team, Yesterday Once More, Colour Blossoms, and Half Twin. Regarding his choice in film roles, Ng has said: "I do gravitate towards darker roles, roles that other people hesitate to touch. I find them intriguing and an opportunity to try something different." He has appeared alongside his father in several productions, including the 2008 TV film Pulau Hantu.
