THE one and only Papa P., the Ultimate Heartthrob of the Philippines conquered the entertainment industry once again. In his recent mega box office movie Starting Over Again, he retained his stature as a bankable actor, box office producer, in-demand product endorser and a multi-platinum recording star. Piolo Pascual is a phenomenal artist in this generation.
I am so impressed by his perseverance and dedication to his profession. Success is a word that can easily be defined by everyone. But, it always takes a lot of hard work and passion to reach an evenly successful life. Piolo Pascual knew his destiny and therefore worked to achieve his long time dream of becoming a renowned actor.
Piolo’s father was a casting director for international films that were shot here in the Philippines. He was introduced in the world of theatre and acting when he joined his father’s school theatre group, Teatro ni Kiko.
During his high school years, he started appearing in That’s Entertainment in the 90’s. Piolo eventually left showbiz to focus on his college studies at the University of Sto. Tomas. In 1996, he migrated to the US together with his family.
Piolo worked as an ER representative. When he turned 21, he decided to return to Manila and pursue a showbiz career. His love team with Judy Ann Santos included big hits like Kahit Isang Saglit, Bakit Di Totohanin, Till There Was You, and Don’t Give Up on Us.
His movie with Claudine Barretto, Milan, was one of his top grossing films which won him Best Actor awards. In 2002 film Dekada 70, Piolo earned eight awards in the Best Supporting Actor category and was given a special recognition for this rare grand slam from winning all awards giving body.
His also received international accolades for his acting. He was recognized in Banff World Media Festival and International Emmy Awards. In 2013, Piolo went to Cannes for the movie On The Job.
I could tell a lot about Piolo’s achievements, but this page would not be enough to accommodate all of them. How did he reach all this success? His journey in showbiz was never easy. He experienced a lot of trials when people thought that his career is almost over and the undying rumors about his sexual orientation kept on going around the industry.
Despite of all the rumors and criticisms, Piolo kept his faith in God. He remained strong in the eyes of many.
Recently, Piolo admitted that he considered leaving showbiz to settle in America with his son Iñigo. The success of his film Starting Over Again with Toni Gonzaga prevented him from doing so. He gave everything to God whom he considers as the creator of his destiny. His recent box office movie earned more than P400 million.
He is very grateful to those who remained by his side and trusted in his ability and talent. True enough, Piolo Pascual is a good man blessed by his fervent faith.
You are one of a kind PJ, once again you have proven that “you can’t put a good man down.” Fans of Piolo Pascual will have a chance rekindle their devotion to this beloved heartthrob when he performs on April 11 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe and April 13 at White Memorial Church in downtown Los Angeles.
