Hero Angeles thanks ABS-CBN for his showbiz comeback: “Noong time na nag-work ulit ako sa ABS, lalong lalo na noong Halik, noong nag-MMK ulit ako, sobrang thankful ako doon sa mga tao na nagbigay ng chance sa akin ulit, sa mga nagtiwala, sumuporta, blessing ito."

Hero Angeles entered show business in 2004 when he joined ABS-CBN’s reality competition, Star Circle Quest, and emerged as the show's Grand Questor.

To this day, Hero has not forgotten exactly how he felt when Boy Abunda announced his name as the winner on the night of June 5, 2004.

He recounted, “Noong time na iyon, sobrang ingay, e. Nakaikot iyong mga tao sa amin, kahit sumisigaw sila, sobrang lakas ng boses nila.

"Iyong pagtsi-cheer nila, hindi mo na alam gaano kalakas iyong inaabot.

“So noong sinabi ni Tito Boy iyon, natulala lang ako talaga. Hindi mag-sink in sa akin.

“Kung makikita niyo iyong footage, natulala lang ako. Nag-sink lang siya sa akin noong pumanhik iyong family ko sa stage.

“Ito pala iyon, ito iyong feeling na lahat ng pinaghirapan mo, makakamit mo iyong pangarap mo.

“Sobrang hindi ko iyon makakalimutan, iyong gabing iyon. Nandito iyan sa puso at isip ko.”

Hero received a pink envelope during the announcement, but because of the noise and the excitement of the moment, he was not able to see what was inside of it.

He said, laughing, “May inabot sa akin diyang envelope na pink, hindi ko na siya nakita after.

“Hindi ko alam kung ano laman noon. Nawala sa kamay ko iyan, e.”

Hero spoke to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during his PEPLive guest appearance on December 1, 2020.

SUPPORT FOR ABS-CBN

In 2005, Hero’s promising showbiz career was nipped in the bud when he figured in a controversy that resulted in ABS-CBN cancelling his contract.

He then worked in GMA-7 for a couple of years until he decided to leave showbiz altogether.

In 2015, Hero returned to ABS-CBN, a successful comeback that showed him appearing in the network's teleseryes and in episodes of Maalaala Mo Kaya.

In 2018, Hero acted as the bestfriend of Yen Santos in the prime-time series Halik.

He was slated to join the cast of Pamilya Ko in March 2020, but the show was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown of ABS-CBN.

Hero joined other Kapamilya celebrities who expressed support for the Kapamilya network when Congress did not renew its franchise.

Hero said, “Nandoon naman iyong suporta ko, hindi mawawala iyan kasi iyong mga nangyari naman before, nakaraan na iyan, e.

“Bakit mo pa sasariwain, bakit mo pa isasabay sa ganitong pagkakataon.

“Siyempre, kailangan ko rin magpakita ng support, iyon iyong nararamdaman ko. Iyon iyong gagawin ko.”

Hero reiterated his gratitude to ABS-CBN for giving his acting career a second chance.

He continued, “Noong time na nag-work ulit ako sa ABS, lalung-lalo na noong Halik, noong nag-MMK ulit ako, sobrang thankful ako doon sa mga tao na nagbigay ng chance sa akin ulit, sa mga nagtiwala, sumuporta, blessing ito.

“Ipinakita ko lang iyong suporta ko noong kasagsagan ng hearing, nangyayari sa network kasi marami akong nakatrabaho before na nandoon pa rin na sobrang naapektuhan, sobra akong nalungkot para sa kanila.

“Iyong damdamin ko noon, nararamdaman ko sa puso ko, hindi ko ma-explain.

“Iyong iba, kinakausap ko na lang personally, tsina-chat ko sila, kinukumusta ko.

“Hindi lang ako siguro ma-social media, hindi ako vocal sa ganyan sa online, pero andun pa rin iyong suporta.”
