Arjo Atayde recalls rejections, hardships before showbiz success

Things weren't easy for Arjo Atayde when he was trying to break into showbiz.

In his interview on "Magandang Buhay" yesterday, April 28, the actor revealed the rejections he had to sustain before he finally got his break.

"Nag-audition ako four times, hindi ako tinanggap. Tapos there's this one day na nakausap ni Mama (Sylvia Sanchez) si Direk Rahyan Carlos for the workshops. And then sabi niya, 'Anak, gusto mo i-try 'yung workshops?' Arjo said.

He added, "And me, as a kid, may ego din naman ako so ayoko, ayaw din naman nila eh. So bakit pa ako magta-try? Sabi niya 'Wala namang mawawala.'"

The 25-year-old actor related how he slowly got to appreciate acting.

"So eventually sumali ako. Ang point ko talaga noong una, honestly, is to meet girls, to enjoy, to go out. 'Yun 'yung first. Pero on the last few days, doon ko na slowly nari-realize na gusto ko pala siya. It's not more of acting and impressing people. It's about the art."

Why, however, did he get rejected in the first place?

"Of course noong bata ako siguro 'di nila ako nakikita... kasi before I have a lot of acne. 'Yung kada punta ko may problema. Nag-start ako sa showbiz sobrang chubby. Ang daming 'di nila nagustuhan eh. Meron isang bagay na laging 'di nila nagugustuhan eh," he shared.

Nevertheless, his persistence paid off as he has been regarded one of the finest actors of his generation.

"Feeling ko ang pinakanakatulong sa akin is 'MMK.' And of course sa teleserye ang pinakatulong talaga sa akin, naramdaman ko ang tulong sa akin is 'FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.'"
