TONY’S FIRSTS

YES! (Philippines) - - POGI SERIES -

FIRST SCARE OF YOUR LIFE?

The Grudge. (This 2004 Amer­i­can hor­ror movie, a re­make of the Ja­panese movie Ju-on: The Grudge, re­volves around “a curse that is born when some­one dies in the grip of a pow­er­ful rage or ex­treme sor­row,” ac­cord­ing to Wikipedia. )

FIRST HEART­BREAK?

I had a crush in high school. I re­mem­ber giv­ing her choco­late, but I got re­jected.

FIRST PUR­CHASE WITH YOUR FIRST SALARY?

Shoes!

FIRST TIME YOU RE­AL­IZED YOU WERE FA­MOUS?

I still don’t think I’m fa­mous.

FIRST TIME SOME­ONE ASKED FOR YOUR AU­TO­GRAPH?

At my first fash­ion show.

FIRST TIME YOU MADE SOME­ONE CRY?

When I was baby, I bit some­one’s fin­ger, I’m pretty sure.

FIRST TIME YOU EM­BAR­RASSED YOUR­SELF?

I was in drama theater. I was play­ing Kenickie from Grease, and I was stand­ing on top of a chair try­ing to be a cool guy, but in­stead, I fell back­ward. Like, my butt fell in be­tween the chair. Like, lit­er­ally, I was stuck!

( Grease is a pop­u­lar stage mu­si­cal that was turned in 1978 into a film star­ring John Tra­volta and Olivia New­ton-John.)

FIRST THING YOU THOUGHT OF WHEN YOU WOKE UP TO­DAY?

More sleep!

FIRST THING YOU DO IN THE MORN­ING?

I check if any­body’s mes­saged me.

FIRST TIME YOU FELT PROUD OF YOUR­SELF?

I felt proud of my­self when I made an ac­tive de­ci­sion to move here to the Philip­pines and be in­de­pen­dent. When I started book­ing work and was able to pro­vide for my­self, I think that’s when I re­al­ized that this time I can re­ally be proud of my­self be­cause I didn’t have to ask for my par­ents’ help.
