THR JOURNEY TO STAR CIRCLE.
Sixteen new faces met the media at the Star Magic event to launch the 2019 Star Magic Circle.
In celebration of its 27th anniversary, Star Magic fulfills its ultimate promise of scouring the country for the cremé dela cremé of the newest and freshest talents.
Trusted and rising commercial ramp models, Star Magic workshoppers, acting newbies, a budding host, a “Halik” actor, a political scion, a “Pinoy Big Brother” hopeful, a “The Boice Kids” season 2 alumni and a promising “Eerie” actress. They are the next gems who went rigorous and necessary trainings to be fully equipped to be part of the entertainment industry.
The 16 newbies are:
Gillian Vicencio, Belle Mariano, Glen Vargas, Kendru Garcia, Arielle Roces, Eisel Serrano, RA Lewis, Javi Benitez, Aiyana Waggoner, Arabella del Rosario, Anthony Jennings, JC Alcantara, Sophie Reyes, Melizza Jimenez, Jeremiah Lisbo, and Kyle Echarri.
The Journey has begun.
Twenty -year old stunner is usually mistaken for a showbiz netizen. But Eisel Serrano is a determined go-getter because everything she dreams of she tends to achieve. Her major goals are ticked one by one like losing weight, traveling the world, obtaining her Travel Management degeee wirh flying colors and performing as a Star Magix Workshopper.
Now having shed her shell and reserved nature, she hopes to be able to share the stage with Bea Alonzo and Liza Soberano in the days to come. And one of her goal is to star in a project as a kontrabida!
And they wowed the media during their launch. The “magic” is within them. Clearly seen, it looks like Eisel is not just a headturner but the favorite of the press. With the number of questions asked of her.
“If I set my mind ito something, I give my best. I was running to be a Magna Cum Laude in UST (for her Travel Management) course. I landed as a Cum Laude. O.05 % na lang. I had to sacrifice because there was something I needed to do and prioritize. The important thing is I made my parents very happy pa rin.”
But why a kontrabida role?
“Crush ko po si Enrique Gil. And Lisa Soberank is my idol. So gusto ko sila maka-eksena. Tapos, may sampalan. Ako ‘yung kontrabida nila. Ang ika-third!”
She can be groomed to be a beauty candidate as well.
“In the future po. Gusto ko rin po. First things first. Approved din naman ‘yun kay Mr. M.”
Eisel.frels lucky that great people are takong care of her. Mr. M and number one concert producer, Joed Serrano.
Some believe in Luck. The rest in God’s timing.
Rina Reyes, the actress from Seiko Films was strutting back and forth. Her daughter Sofie is part of the new batch.
There are many things that Sofie can follow from her great grandmother Paraluman, to Granda.Baby O’Brien and Mom Rina.
“I want to do everything they have achieved. I wany to be an actress. And because I am talkative, I also want to become a host. Fpr jow, wherever Mr. M will put us is what my focus would be.”
They are just two of the 8 ladies who caught our attention in the said launch.
On the side of the guys, we already see Kyle as Tupe/Kristoff in “Kadenang Ginto”. And most have had their guesting gigs in the Kapamilya shows.
All of them are very promising. As they listened to the video messages of the senior members of Star Magic, some of them are even teary-eyed and have felt the sacrifices and rhe challenges these stars have gone through.
The likes of Piolo Pascual, Jericho Rosales, Zanjoe Marudo, Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo, Robi Domingo, Julia Barretto and Maja Salvador shared their nuggets of wisdom to the new batch.
We are keeping our eyes on them.
For the now, two ladies are a standout in the launch.
All eyes are on Eisel. For Sofie, Paraluman, Baby and Rina are like shadows wanting to bring out the best in her.
