Protégé runner-up Bryan Benedict is not only physically fit and good-looking. He is also an actor eager to improve his craft. After being awarded “Best Actor” in a GMA Artist Center workshop, he now gets to showcase his talent in With A Smile. Find out more about him here on GIVE ME FIVE.
GIVE ME FIVE of your favorite past times.
Ang ginagawa ko araw-araw, naghuhugas ng pinggan. Tapos nagwowork out siyempre sa bahay, nagpapaligo ng aso, siyempre, quality time with my mom and my family and going to Church ‘pag Sunday. ‘Yun lang, hindi ako pala-gimmick, ‘eh.
GIVE ME FIVE ways to de-stress and relax.
Work out lang talaga, times five. (Laughs) Sabi nga nila, the perfect time to work out is when you’re stressed and ‘pag feeling mo, you’re having a bad day. May nabasa akong ganun eh. ‘Yung inis mo, ‘yung stress mo, ‘dun mo na nailalabas.
GIVE ME FIVE of your favorite movies.
Serendipity, The Notebook, The Pursuit of Happiness, A Beautiful Mind at saka Sweet November.
GIVE ME FIVE things you can’t live without.
Phone, panyo, siyempre you can’t live without God. You need to have faith in God, tapos ako para sa akin, hindi ako mabubuhay nang wala akong goal. Parang ikaw, ‘pag nabuhay ka, kailangang may goal ka at alam mo kung ano ang gusto mong i-achieve sa buhay mo. Tapos siyempre, parents ko, kahit hindi siya bagay, alam kong hindi ako mabubuhay nang wala ‘yung magulang ko.”
GIVE ME FIVE names of people you look up to.
Number one siyempre, parents ko. My parents are special. ‘Yung dad ko is deaf and mute, ‘yung mom ko din, so I look up very much to them kasi wala ako dito kung hindi dahil sa kanila. Hindi ako masyadong nagloo-look up sa ibang tao, sa totoo lang, pero siguro si Michael Jordan, I’m a fan. Si Michael Jackson, Will Smith, yun lang.
