Teen heartthrob Paul Salas related today, October 6, on "Magandang Buhay" how he fought for his passion for acting and pursue a career in showbiz.
He first shared that his parents didn’t want him to audition for a show because he was too young.
“Ayaw pa po nila kasi ang bata ko pa noon mga six or seven years old, siyempre dapat studies first muna,” Paul related.
He added, “Sabi ko hindi, kaya ko naman, pinilit ko talaga sila kasi gusto ko ma-try 'yung nakita ko sa TV, [mukhang] masaya.”
His parents eventually let him audition, but with one condition: his grades in school shouldn’t drop, or else he’ll stop doing shows.
“Nag-promise po talaga ako sa parents ko na mag-aaral ako, tapos pinilit ko po talaga [na mag-showbiz] na ako pa po 'yung gumigising ng maaga tapos gigisingin ko sila para sa call time,” he said.
His efforts definitely paid off, because he’s been in showbiz for almost 10 years! Kudos to Paul for never giving up on his dreams!
Paul was part of the 2015 drama “You’re My Home”, which also starred Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta.
