Singer Erik Santos is nervous and excited about his first-ever acting stint, which will be for Maalaala Mo Kaya airing on July 24. “Excited ako kasi for the first time ang ipo-promote ko hindi pagkanta [kundi] acting naman,” shared the singer. “Kinakabahan kasi hindi ko alam kung magugustuhan ng mga tao pero I hope and pray magustuhan nila.”

Though he has been in the business for six years, Erik never tried acting before even if there were previous offers. “May past offer na ‘yung MMK sa akin pero feeling ko hindi pa ako handa,” he said. But when this particular role was offered to him, he finally said yes because he felt that it was close to his heart. “Itong binigay nila ‘yung script, binasa ko, sabi ko ang ganda kasi singer din [‘yung character] eh. Nagta-travel so sabi ko, ‘Sigenga try ko.’ So pinag-workshop nila ako kay Direk Laurice (Guillen) ng one session, ayun. Tsaka why not? Try lang naman ‘di ba? Gusto ko lang i-try kung pwede.”

Biruin mo sa isa pang napaka-popular na programa at isa sa kinikilalang pinaka-mahusay na drama anthology na umeere sa kasalukuyan sa TV, ang Maalaala Mo Kaya, siya napasali.

Mukhang mapapasubo si Eric at talagang kaila­ngang mag-effort dahil ispesyal ang episode na kinunan pa sa Macau sa direksiyon ni Mae Cruz.

Sinasabing lahat ng na-feature na artist sa MMK ay gumaling na artista, mapabilang kaya sa talaan ang mahusay na manganganta? At ito na ba ang simula ng kanyang pagiging isang aktor?

SPEAKING of natural na kaseksihan, sobrang hanga ang mga kalalakihan kay Kristel Moreno, contract star ng ABC-CBN Talent Center.

Katunayan, kinuhang cover girl si Kristel ng FHM Magazine at binigyan ng “special pictorial” ng iba’t ibang anggulo sa inside pages ng magazine. Kahit saan sipatin si Kristel, perfect ang hugis ng kanyang body, and so beautiful din siya, huh!

Nagtataglay siya ng katawan at face na pinapantasya ng mga kalalakihan sa lahat ng antas ng lipunan, foreigners man o mga Pinoy.

That is why, pinili si Kristel ng management ng ABS-CBN para magbida sa isang epidose ng Maalaala Mo Kaya, hosted by Ms. Charo Santos. Ang titulo ng MMK episode ni Kristel ay Macau dahil sa naturang bansa naganap ang istorya at du’n sila nag-taping entirely for the said episode, with Erik Santos as her leading man.
