Star Magic’s 25th anniversary wouldn’t have been complete without hearing from two of their most legendary artists, Claudine Barretto and Kristine Hermosa.
The two gorgeous actresses sent out their love via recorded messages aired on the second half of the talent management’s celebration on “ASAP” last Sunday, May 28.
Claudine shared how Star Magic head Mariole Alberto and chairman emeritus Johnny “Mr. M.” Manahan have acted as her parents in the industry, then sent her well wishes for everyone.
She said, “Happy 25th anniversary, Star Magic! To this family who made me who I am today, to Star Magic that has been my second home and family. Mr. M, my second dad, and Tita Mariole, my second mom. Thank you for bringing out the best in all of us.”
“May we all continue to believe in the magic of Star Magic and continue to shine. Happy 25th anniversary, Star Magic! I’ll see you all soon,” Claudine added.
Kristine, on the other hand, looked back on the all the times Star Magic believed in her and thanked the entire team for the efforts in taking care of their artists.
“To my Star Magic family, happy 25th anniversary. Ang Star Magic ang naging aking pangalawang tahanan at pamilya since I started in the industry. I literally grew up with them, and shared so many sweet and happy memories. Star Magic has been God’s greatest gift in my life’s journey and purpose,” said Kristine.
She continued, “Dinamayan nila ako all these years kaya I’m grateful and blessed sa lahat ng bumubuo ng Star Magic. Mr. M, and Tita Mariole, salamat sa pagtiwala at pagmamahal na pinaramdam niyo sa akin ng maraming taon, at sa iba-ibang pagkakataon. Thank you for always encouraging and believing in me. To all the handlers, and RMs (road managers), salamat sa lahat ng hard work, tiyaga, at pasensya. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat, at mahal ko po kayo. Congratulations, Star Magic!”
Claudine and Kristine starred in some of the iconic Kapamilya movies and teleseryes in the 90s and 2000s.
