Erik Santos wants to try acting
MANILA – Having been in the entertainment industry for 10 years now, singer Erik Santos said he is now more open to accept acting projects.

“Dapat focused ka lang. Naniniwala ako na kapag singer ka, ma-establish mo na singer ka bago ka mag-branch out. Kalian lang ba ako nag-acting, after eight years? Kahit paano na-establish ko naman ang sarili ko as a singer,” he said.
Santos has already starred in two episodes of the longest-running drama anthology “Maalaala Mo Kaya.”
