MANILA, Philippines – Young actor JM de Guzman admitted that there was a time when people told him that he is not good enough to be a star.
In an interview on “Bandila,” de Guzman said this served as a challenge for him to do better in his work as an actor.
“Maraming beses po na nasabi sa akin. Ginagamit ko po ‘yon para mas lalo akong ganahan at mag-focus,” he said.
“Sa teatro walang pera, sinasabi nila sa akin ‘tigilan mo na ‘yan, di ka yayaman diyan at di ka uunlad diyan. Pero tinuloy ko pa rin po,” he added.
De Guzman, who started as a theater actor, found his way into the mainstream TV industry.
He said he learned a lot during the transition.
“Malaki rin po ang [adjustment]. In terms of focal power, in terms sa paggalaw. Sa teatro mas malaki po ang galaw,” he said.
De Guzman rose to fame after he starred in defunct hit series "Mula Sa Puso."
De Guzman is now the lead star of "Angelito: Batang Ama."
