THE OTHER STARS – The last time, Highspeed focused on Kapuso top stars. This time, the topic is The Other Stars of GMA, the young ones.
Of course, leading the list is the phenomenal AlDub (Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza). They have a primetime show currently airing, “Destined to Be Yours.” They also came up with a wonderful movie shot in Italy, “Imagine You and Me,” directed by Mike Tuviera and produced by APT (Antonio P. Tuviera). Heard that a second film is in the pipeline.
Truth to tell, “Imagine,” is hard to top.
Maine was quoted as saying she’s more than happy with what she has achieved…and that she could retire from showbiz anytime soon. Perhaps she could stay for a years or so. But Alden definitely has a lot more to achieve. He’s got the looks, talent, appeal…with a good PR to boot.
MORE, MORE, MORE – Barbie Forteza and her four boys (Ken Chan, Jak Roberto, Addy Raj, Ivan Dorschner) in “Meant to Be.” She’s definitely the teen queen of the Kapuso channel.
More names follow Barbie, in no particular order:
Derrick Monasterio, Bea Binene, Hiro Peralta, Kiko Estrada, Jake Vargas, Ruru Madrid, Jillian Ward, Andre Paras, Janine Gutierrez, Winwyn Marquez, Bianca Umali, Miguel Tanfelix, David Licauco, Kim Domingo (the next sex symbol), David Remo, Julius Erasga, and introducing the GAYA boys: Dave Bornea, Carl Cervantes, Vince Vandorpe, Matthias Rhoads. Plus Benjamin Alves, Julie Ann San Jose, Gil Cuerva, Carlo Gonzalez.
OLDIES BUT – Must mention the oldies but goodies of GMA, lead by Vic and Tito Sotto, Joey de Leon, and the “lolas” of “Eat Bulaga”: Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, and Paolo Ballesteros.
Not to forget the other EB hosts: Ryan Agoncillo, Pia Guanio, Ruby Rodriguez, Allan K, Jimmy Santos. Plus child stars Baste and Ryzza.
And yes, Michael V of “Bubble Gang.” He’s a multi-talent – comedian, host, writer, singer, idea man.
“Eat Bulaga” and “Bubble Gang” have been airing for decades.
