MANILA – They may no longer be visible on ABS-CBN but Kristine Hermosa and Claudine Barretto will always consider Star Magic their second home.
In two separate pre-recorded videos which aired on “ASAP” on Sunday, Hermosa and Barretto thanked the network's talent management arm for being their guiding light when they were still starting in showbiz.
Barretto credited Star Magic for bringing out the best in her.
“Happy 25th anniversary Star Magic, to this family who made me who I am today, the Star Magic that has been my second home and family, Mr. M (Johnny Manahan), my second dad, and Tita Mariole (Alberto), my second mom. Thank you for bringing out the best in all of us,” she said.
Hermosa, for her part, she regards Star Magic as “God’s greatest instrument in my life’s journey and purpose.”
“Dinamayan nila ako all these years kaya I am grateful and blessed sa lahat ng taong bumubuo ng Star Magic. Mr. M and Tita Mariole, salamat sa tiwala at pagmamahal na pinaramdam niyo sa akin ng maraming taon at sa iba ibang pagkakataon. Thank you for always encouraging and believing in me,” she said.
She likewise thanked all the Star Magic handlers and road managers for their hard work and patience.
“Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat at mahal ko po kayo,” she ended.
Aside from Hermosa and Barretto, Star Magic has molded the most popular actors in the entertainment industry today.
