Apart from his time on Hawaii Five-0, Keo wrote, directed and produced an independent film in 2013 entitled The Haumana. It is so sad that he passed away while in the middle of working on a sequel to the film. Keo acted in Happy, Texas (1999), Falling for Grace (2006) and Godzilla (2014). While he did focus mainly on his acting career on both television and film, Keo was also a member of the Hawaiian boy band Brownskin, and a theater actor who starred in over 300 performances of the musical The King & I.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who loved Keo and miss him dearly.
