This was how Sam Milby described his feelings about his flight on Wednesday, February 1.
He added, "Maraming mami-miss dito... and weird, kasi parang hindi pa rin nag-set-in na aalis ako."
But at the same time, "I'm excited," he said in an interview during the intimate send-off party hosted by his Star Magic family last night, January 29.
With a smile, he shared what awaits him in Hollywood, "Actually, I have an audition that day after I arrive.
"And it's step two... I have the script already so I have to study that on the plane."
The Filipino-American actor, however, clarified that "there's no project" yet.
Some people, he said, had already approached him and remarked, "Sam, Hollywood ka na..."
But he emphasized, "You can't say Hollywood... It's not like I have a project.
"I heard some people reacting na, I'm getting into... I've heard Vampire Diaries [a series]. No...
"The shows I'm auditioning are for the major networks, all for new shows. It's the pilot season.
"As in, mga bagong show that the networks are making."
It's a "gamble" for him given his status as one of the most in-demand leading men in ABS-CBN.
Since he became a Pinoy Big Brother housemate in 2005, Sam has been part of more than 30 television shows and movies and a number of music albums.
When he gets to Los Angeles, what's the first thing he will do?
