Mark Neumann is now a Kapamilya after being with TV5 for five years. He recently appeared in ABS-CBN shows ASAP and La Luna Sangre.



Mark Neumann has officially joined the roster of former TV5 talents who are now part of ABS-CBN.

The Artista Academy runner-up started appearing in the Kapamilya fantasy series La Luna Sangre since early August.

In the primetime series, he plays an active member of Moonchasers, the group that fights against vampires.




Mark also joined other Kapamilya stars during his performance on the noontime variety show ASAP last Sunday, August 20.

He had a dance number with homegrown ABS-CBN stars Kim Chiu and Enchong Dee, and former StarStruck V finalists Sarah Lahbati and Enzo Pineda.






After his number, Mark thanked everyone who watched his ASAP performance through Instagram.

He simply wrote, "Thank you for watching #ASAPBIDAKA"

Mark's contract with TV5 expired last July, after being with the Kapatid network for five years.

He was discovered through the artista search Artista Academy, wherein Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert were hailed as winners.

Mark formed a love team with co-finalist Shaira Mae and took part in shows such as Kidlat (2013) and several installments of Wattpad Presents (2014-2015).

In 2015, Mark got his big break on television when he was tapped as the lead actor of TV5's adaptation of the K-drama series Baker King.

In late 2016, when most of TV5's talents are already transferring to ABS-CBN, Mark surprised everyone when he did an episode of Karelasyon with Kris Bernal and Jay Arcilla.

Mark even told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview after his Karelasyon guesting, "I like it there, to be honest. I like it. Mabait din ang mga tao dun."

Among the Artista Academy top finalists, it is Mark who is the last to switch networks.

His co-finalists Vin, Sophie, and Chanel Morales already made their Kapamilya appearances in 2016.

Akihiro Blanco disclosed that he already taped episodes for the upcoming ABS-CBN series The Good Son and he was seen in a few episodes of La Luna Sangre.

On the other hand, Mark's love team partner Shaira Mae has been with GMA-7 and TAPE Inc.'s daytime series Trops since January 2017. She has also guested in Eat Bulaga and Sunday PinaSaya.

Other former TV5 celebrities who already transferred to ABS-CBN include Alex Gonzaga, JC de Vera, Arci Muñoz, Morissette Amon, Danita Paner, and Ritz Azul.

It has not been announced though if Mark has already signed a contract with the Kapamilya network.
