Eben approached the music scene as a freelance drummer for artists like Elvis Blue, 1st Project, Andra, Heinz Winckler, Staffan Bosson (Swedish Pop Idol with the hit song "One in a million"), Andriette, Cutting Jade and many others, but the acting bug bit him big time! He made his first professional acting appearance in the feature film Lien se Lankstaanskoene where he played a supporting lead role as Hein (2012). He also played lead in a few short films just to stay busy and improve on his acting skills including the Kyknet Silverskerm comedy short film Damduikers, die Damduikers as the character Rian (2013). Eben also had the honor to take part in the Deon Opperman 13 episode drama series called Donkerland with many great actors where he had a lead role in episode 12 and 13 as Francois de Witt (2013). This is where he was spotted by the Afrikaans soapy Villa Rosa and finished a 3 month contract with them as Paul Rossouw in 2014 and in 2016 he played the role of Pieter, one of the lead roles (Episode 4) in a television series called Boland Moorde season 2.
