When he won at the contest, Marky Cielo became very visible in the Kapuso network. He never ran out of projects. His launching show as a lead star is Fantastikids, together with Isabella de Leon, BJ Forbes, Glaiza de Castro and Ryza Cenon.The show was shown every Saturday. He was also included in the last installment of Encantadia: Pag-ibig hanggang wakas opposite Jackie Rice.
He then appeared in two shows afterwards like Bakekang (where he was paired with Yasmien Kurdi) and Asian Treasures (as the sidekick of Robin Padilla and Angel Locsin). He became more popular as a drama actor and action star in both shows but coincidentally, his characters in both shows were killed as he needs to do another one.
His biggest break is playing the role of Zaido Green in Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan with Dennis Trillo and Aljur Abrenica. He was loved by kids and became a role model to the youth. He was also chosen by the Department of Health as their youth spokesperson for the anti-smoking campaign.
After Zaido, he was once again paired with Glaiza de Castro in the Sinenovela "Kaputol ng Isang Awit". He was later on included in the cast of Codename:Asero. Again, his character was killed as he was needed in the rom-com show "La Lola" where he is paired with Lovi Poe. His character Billy is still present in the show until his untimely death.
