NOT all big stars are ready to lend a hand and help you learn the craft.
This was the lesson learned by actor Vin Abrenica, younger brother of Aljur Abrenica. Vin, who just transferred to ABS-CBN recently from TV5, said he was snubbed by a well known movie personality he really admired.
“There was one time sinadya kong kunin ’yung gamit ko at inilagay ko sa tent n’ya para ma-interview ko lang s’ya nang kahit konti. Pero nilabas n’ya ’yung gamit ko, nasa floor, sobrang dumi at wala na akong magawa,” said Vin, during an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
The actor, who did not identify the movie personality, said that he was hoping he could get some acting tips from the star. But Abunda advised Vin to learn from that experience so that he could develop into a good actor.
“It’s important not to forget that story and use it as fuel to become a better actor.”
Vin, 25, said that it was a dream come true that he is now on ABS-CBN and being interviewed by Abunda.
“Hindi ako makapaniwala na ’andito na ako ngayon. Pinapanuod ko lang ito dati but now I’m talking to you,” Vin said.
Vin joined the Kapamilya network last May despite awareness that competition in ABS-CBN is fierce.
“Honestly, takot talaga ako. Doon limited kami. Konti lang naman kami dun. Dito natatakot ako pero naniniwala ako sa hard work,” added Vin.
Vin also said that he has learned so much from big stars who appeared on TV 5.
Asked how he deals with them, Vin said that he usually takes advantage of the situation that involves the popular stars.
“Tine-take advantage ko ’yun. Tulad dati kay Ate Guy. I go to her tent tapos nagtatanong ako. Nakakahiya man pero nakikipag read lines ako sa kanya,” added Vin.
“Tapos sobrang open talaga ang ears ko gumagawa talaga ako ng way. Mainis na sila sa akin pero tine-take advantage ko ‘yun. I wanna learn.”
Vin also said that he wants to focus on showbiz despite the fact that he excels in academics.
Vin said his elder brother Aljur gives him moral support all the time.
Vin, who rose to fame via the “Artista Academy” talent search on TV 5 in 2012, also revealed that all his former girlfriends were older than him.
“First relationship ko way older than me tapos ‘yung sumunod, mga 6 to 8 years older. Mas matanda talaga lahat ng nakakasama ko. I don’t know why, maybe it’s their maturity level? Gusto ko talaga ng matured,” Vin added.
