Aminado ang StarStruck 6 Ultimate Male Survivor na si Migo Adecer na may girlfriend siya ngayon.
Ito ay si Elaver Pacatang, na dati raw nag-aartista sa mga teleserye ng Kapuso network.
Ayon kay Migo, “Mag-one year na kami in August, she used to come out din sa mga teleserye before dito sa GMA-7.
“Nakasabay niya noon sina Barbie Forteza and Jake Vargas, but she stopped acting na and she’s in school.
“I met her through common friends when I was in StarStruck pa.
“We had this instant connection and it’s been great being with her.”
Dagdag pa niya, “I know it’s hard to have a girlfriend while you’re in showbiz, like in my case, may ka-love team ako.
“But I’m a hopeless romantic, there is something about this girl that I truly love.
“And I am hoping that we can be in this relationship for a very long time.”
WORKING STUDENT. Ang Pop Diva na si Kuh Ledesma ang naka-discover kay Migo sa Sydney, Australia, at ito ang nag-encourage sa kanyang sumali sa StarStruck.
Lahad ng newbie actor, “I didn’t even know what StarStruck was, I didn’t Google it.
“Ms. Kuh just told me that I have to sing in this audition. I never realized that it would all come to this.
“When I won, it was really something that I didn’t expect would happen to me.”
Kahit busy si Migo sa kanyang career, ipinagpapatuloy pa rin niya ang kanyang pag-aaral dito sa Pilipinas.
“I stopped schooling in Australia when I came over here for StarStruck. I was already in Grade 10 that time.
“I don’t want to waste any time kasi. Kung magpagsabay ko ang work and school, gagawin ko.
“Back in Australia, I was a working student. I was never dependent on my parents.
“We’re not very well-off at marami akong mga kapatid, so I had to do my part to help my family and be able to buy things for myself.
“Sanay ako sa trabaho, kasi I want to be a pilot or a dentist someday.
“In order to achieve that, I have to work really hard,” saad niya.
Dagdag pa ni Migo, “Now, mas okey na akong mag-Tagalog unlike before.”
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Migo sa grand launch ng Encantadia noong July 13 sa Studio 7 ng GMA Network.
WORTH THE WAIT. Excited nga raw si Migo sa pagkakasama niya sa malaking telefantasya ng GMA-7.
Ito ang unang teleserye ni Migo pagkatapos niyang manalo sa StarStruck Season 6 noong December 2015.
“I thought this day would never come,” sambit ni Migo sa pagkakabigay sa kanya ng role bilang si Anthony, na unang ginampanan ng kauna-unahang StarStruck male winner na si Mark Herras.
Marami nga raw ginawang paghahanda ang 16-year-old Kapuso actor para sa Encantadia at worth it naman daw ang kanyang paghihintay.
Aniya, “After I won StarStruck, I thought I would be acting kaagad sa isang teleserye.
“But they told me to wait because they have a bigger thing planned for me and my co-winner Klea Pineda.
“So we made the rounds of guestings sa ibang shows ng GMA-7, we got familiar with a lot of the production people.
“It gave us the time to adjust sa buhay na ito in showbiz, and it also gave me time to brush up on my Tagalog.
“Until the day came that they said na makakasama kami sa Encantadia, and here we are.”
Mas nauna pa ngang nabigyan ng teleserye ang runners-up nila ni Klea na sina Ayra Mariano at Elyson de Dios via Poor Senorita.
Hindi naman daw na-insecure si Migo.
Sabi niya, “I never let insecurity get the best of me.
“Even when I joined StarStruck, I knew there would be other people who'd be a lot goodlooking and a lot more talented than me.
“I am actually very happy for both Elyson and Ayra kasi we got very close during the last few days of StarStruck last year.
“Natuwa ako when they had their teleserye na, I know na may hinahanda ang GMA-7 for me and Klea at ito na nga iyong Encantadia.
“Alam ko rin na they will be happy na may teleserye na kami ni Klea.”
CASTING WOES. Pero hindi nakuha ni Klea ang role ni Lira na unang ginampanan ni Jennylyn Mercado sa orihinal na Encantadia. Napunta ito sa bagong Kapuso talent na si Mikee Quintos.
Gagampanan ni Klea ang role na Muyak, ang pixie fairy originally played by Nancy Castiglione.
Kuwento ni Migo, “I was also surprised when Klea was given a different role.
“I thought all along that she was to play Lira kasi nga magka-love team kami.
“But the people in the production made that decision.
“Klea kasi is too tall to be the daughter of Kylie Padilla.
“When they did some test shots, parang hindi raw bagay.
“Tapos si Klea, hindi siya maputi, tan siya.
“They had to cast another actress who will fit with Kylie, so they gave the role of Muyak to Klea.”
Ayon pa kay Migo, “I know that Klea was quite upset when she was given a different role kasi she was prepared for the role of Lira.
“But things like this happens, di ba? Maybe she wasn’t meant for the Lira role.
“I was able to work na with Mikee when we had our tapings na, it was hard at first.
“Hindi kami magkakilala and kailangan mag-adjust kami with one another.
“But now, okey naman kaming dalawa. We’ve already bonded kasi halos lahat ng scenes magkasama kami.
“Actually Klea will be with us sa mga scenes kasi siya yung parang guardian ni Lira sa story.”
Bukod sa Encantadia ay may gagawin ding album si Migo sa ilalim ng GMA Records.
Pagmamalaki nga niya, “My real talent kasi is singing and I also play the guitar, I also write music.
“So my first album will have some of my original music and also with the help of other songwriters.
“It’s a combination of English and Tagalog songs.”
