DIEGO ON HIS SHOWBIZ LINEAGE

Nasa dugo ni Diego ang showbiz.

Artista ang kanyang mga magulang na sina Lotlot de Leon at Ramon Christopher Gutierrez.

Sikat na singers at artista din ang mga lola ni Diego na sina Pilita Corrales at Nora Aunor, at mga lolo na sina Christopher de Leon at Eddie Gutierrez.

Kahit na siya ay naka-focus sa recording ay bukas naman siya sa iba pang showbiz opportunities.

Aniya, "Kasi nung nag-sign po ako with Tito Leo [Dominguez] sa LVD, halos kasabay din po na nag-sign ako [with] my uncle's record label in the States."

Kung bibigyan siya ng pagkakataon na umarte sa harap ng camera, sino ang nais niyang maging leading lady?

"Wala naman po akong nasa isip ngayon, pero open naman po ako to work with anyone, anyone po.

"Siguro for me, it would be a super honor to work with the top leading ladies now like sina Liza [Soberano], sila Kathryn [Bernardo], sila Julia [Barretto], so... wala naman po akong ano, kahit sino po basta... iyon po, sila po."
