Donny Pangilinan, the son of Anthony and Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan, got candid about his dreams of making it in showbiz in an interview on "Tonight with Boy Abunda" on Friday, saying that he is ready to follow the footsteps of his celebrity parents. 

"It just found me," Donny said in explaining how he came to the decision of pursuing a career in acting. "Supporters just came out of nowhere. I wasn't really finding it or forcing stuff, I was just waiting patiently and if it came, it came. And it actually arrived." 

In addition to making his debut television appearance in "ASAP" last year, he is also currently one of the hosts of music channel MYX Philippines. He has more than 250,000 followers on Twitter and Instagram combined. 

Donny describes himself as a very shy person, sharing: "Kasi my mom is an introvert actually and so growing up, I'm very shy. As in wala po akong sinasabi masyado. I just keep it to myself. I just like processing information." 

In the same interview, he also talked about who he wants to be partnered up for a teleserye, saying that he would love to work with actress Liza Soberano, and who he thinks is the sexiest woman in the industry.
