MIGUEL Tanfelix and Derrick Monasterio are two of the actors chosen to be part of the first batch of Sparkle who will get a special push this year. Looks like the former love team of Miguel with Bianca Umali is now truly a thing of the past as Miguel is now paired with another Sparkle star, Ysabel Ortega, in two new shows, the sci-fi series, “Voltes V Legacy,” and the youth-oriented teleserye, “What We Could Be.”
So how does it feel to be part of Sparkle?
“We’re all excited kasi andaming plans ng network for us individually to shine more and so we’re looking forward to things that will help boost our careers in this new year,” he says.
So how does he maintain his sparkle?
“You have to keep on reinventing yourself, try doing new things that will excite your fans everyday. At para hindi mawala ‘yung spark, you should also do things that inspire you.’’
How about Derrick? How does it feel to be part of Sparkle?
“Just like the rest, I’m thrilled with the projects that GMA’s Sparkle has in store for us,” he says. “I offered a prayer to thank the Lord as this is a great blessing for me, for all of us to help our careers take off.”
How does he intend to maintain his sparkle? “You just have to constantly renovate yourself and be curious and open to new learnings and to take all things that Mr. Johnny Manahan as head is teaching you like a sponge.”
How does it feel working with all the seven other stars chosen by Sparkle in their batch?
“It’s good that we’re all friends. We really have to work hard para hindi masayang ang opportunity na itong ibinigay ng GMA sa amin. I know we will all support each other.
There’s no competition at all between us kasi we all love each other.”
