How were you discovered?
I auditioned for Viva, but I started out with commercials. One was a Nestle ad where my line was, “Mas magaling ‘pag nag-almusal.” I wanted to be an actor, but I wasn’t doing it right. I wasn’t going to meetings… I was lazy.

What was your big break?
When I joined Click, and when I bagged roles in the movies Captain Barbell and Filipinas.

What’s the best and worst thing about being an actor?
The best thing would be the money and the girls! Ha, ha! The worst? There’s none. It’s all fun!

Other than being an actor, what’s your dream job?
To be a pilot.

Prince of Hearts
Girls are…
Mysterious!

If you could be a girl for a day, what would you do?
[Snickers] I’d find out who the girls are talking about all the time. I want to know what they talk about, and what they want to do to that guy.

What’s one thing that attracts you to a girl?
The eyes draw me in, but I also have a thing for tan lines and nice feet.

Makeup or no makeup?
No makeup!

What would you like your real-life princess to be?
Funny! She doesn’t have to be pretty; that’s just a bonus.

Are you willing to give up your career for love?
If I knew in my heart that it’s true love, I would!
