Xian Lim, iiwan ang showbiz?!

In spite of an impressive debut as a professional basketball player last July 5, Xian Lim is keeping his feet firmly planted in showbiz. 

The heartthrob, who has started playing for the Mandaluyong El Tigre-Dataland in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL), told PEP in a recent interview that he has no plans to quit his acting career, especially since he is nowhere near "where he wants to be" basketball-wise.

He explained, "It's very hard. People only see what they see on screen but it's a very hard process. It's been a long journey. Wala pa ako doon, I mean, I'm so far away from where I wanna be. I just wanna keep on working hard."

For his first professional game, Xian played against the Pasig Pirates-Gameville for 15 minutes, scoring six points and pulling six rebounds.

Xian's most recent on-screen outing was in Gino M. Santos' erotic thriller "Sin Island" alongside Coleen Garcia and Nathalie Hart.
