Ka­puso Stars at Sum­mit

YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

Hav­ing the con­tract stars of GMA Artist Cen­ter, the tal­ent-man­age­ment arm of GMA Net­work, as vis­i­tors in the Sum­mit Me­dia of­fice is a good way to get to know them. They give fun but sub­stan­tial in­ter­views to YES! Mag­a­zine and our on­line af­fil­i­ate, PEP.ph. They also par­tic­i­pate in the games and chal­lenges cooked up by PEP.ph.

Re­cent of­fice vis­i­tors were new­com­ers Lind­say de Vera, Bruno Gabriel, and Ayra Mar­i­ano; home­grown tal­ents Kris Ber­nal and Rocco Na­cino; and mati­nee idols Ivan Dorschner, Migo Ade­cer, and Ja­son Abalos. Kris Ber­nal and Rocco Na­cino—the grand fe­male win­ner and the male run­ner-up, re­spec­tively, in the fourth and fifth sea­sons of the re­al­ity-TV tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion StarStruck— thanked those who watched their re­cently con­cluded drama se­ries Im­pos­tora and Hap­los, which were both aired from July 2017 to Fe­bru­ary 2018.

They also talked about their busi­ness ven­tures—Kris’s burger joint, called Meat Kris, and Rocco’s fran­chise of Rufo’s fast-food chain, plus Rocco’s co-own­er­ship of Back­yard Kitchen + Brew restau­rant.

Kris was so pas­sion­ate about her Meat Kris that she found ways of pro­mot­ing it even while she and Rocco were tack­ling PEP.ph’s chal­lenge to an­swer sit­u­a­tional ques­tions within a five-sec­ond pe­riod. Rocco then light­heart­edly chided his fel­low Ka­puso star: “Shame­less plug!” Among the three new­com­ers—(L-R) Lind­say de Vera, Bruno Gabriel, and Ayra Mar­i­ano—it’s Lind­say who has had more ex­pe­ri­ence in the act­ing field.

Lind­say was part of the hit ac­tion-drama se­ries Alyas Robin Hood, which ran for two sea­sons (from Septem­ber 2016 to Fe­bru­ary 2017 and from Au­gust 2017 to Novem­ber 2017). She played the younger sis­ter of lead star Ding­dong Dantes, with Ja­clyn Jose as their mother, in the show di­rected by Do­minic Za­p­ata. “I learned a lot from them,” Lind­say said of her di­rec­tor and costars. “Es­pe­cially kay Tita Ja­clyn. Ang dami niyang ’tin­uro sa akin.”

Bruno and Ayra were paired up in the mil­len­nial tele­drama G.R.I.N.D. (Get Ready, It’s a New Day), whose first sea­son ran in mid-2017. While wait­ing for their show’s next sea­son to start, they have been work­ing on other projects. Bruno par­tic­i­pated last Novem­ber in Un­der the Stars, a fash­ion show put on by the Bench life­style brand. Ayra is in the cast of the light ro­man­tic se­ries The One That Got Away.

Heart­throbs Ja­son Abalos, Ivan Dorschner, and Migo Ade­cer (L-R) spoke about their roles in The One That Got Away.
