It’s been 14 years since Hero Angeles was named Grand Questor of “Star Circle Quest’s” first season, and he still can’t forget the harsh words Boy Abunda said to him during the competition.
“Para kang iced tea na walang ice,” Hero recalled on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” yesterday, April 4. “Hindi ko pa rin nakakalimutan,” he said with a laugh.
Meanwhile, The King of Talk humbly apologized for having said that to a 19-year-old back then.
“Sorry ah… Hindi ko alam kung paano ko siya nasabi, pero I apologize,” he said.
Hero assured him that the same hurtful comment has helped him hone his craft, especially in his upcoming TV series with the RSB Drama Unit, where he plays a gay man.
“Series ito ni Jericho Rosales, tapos tinanggap ko na siya agad kahit hindi ko pa alam ‘yung role… tapos nung nalaman ko, sabi ko challenging ‘to… ibang-iba sa ginawa ko… inaaral ko pa rin siya hanggang ngayon… Nakatulong naman siya (Tito Boy’s comment) sa pag-prepare,” he said.
Hero’s last teleserye with ABS-CBN was in 2015 in “Nathaniel.” He made his comeback last year through an episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya.”
