The Acoustic Heartthrob, Sam Milby, was Boy Abunda’s live guest tonight in his segment in Bandila.
Even if it was the May 22 episode of the news program, it was officially Sam’s birthday (May 23) when he was interviewed live because it was already past 12 midnight. He just turned 28 years old.
Sam is doing a teleserye for ABS-CBN with Judy Ann Santos and Jessy Mendiola, and he said he already agreed to do the teleserye even before he left for the U.S. to try his luck in the international scene.
But what exactly happened with his months of auditioning? Good news because the heartthrob, who still has an American accent despite the years of stay in the PH, said he will go back to the U.S. hopefully in January next year.
So he’s auditioning again?
He said that he missed some auditions when he was there because he arrived February and that was already late because auditions start in January.
When asked what triggered his desire to try his luck abroad, Sam said he really didn’t have any plans like that before. He said he has some friends who work for a television network and the network was looking for Asian actors and he saw it as an opportunity. A top agency in New York took him in for representation and it’s like a door opened for him.
He explained, however, that all kinds of people audition in Hollywood and it all comes down to talent in the end.
If you miss Sam and can’t wait for his teleserye anymore, tune in to Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4 tonight for they will be airing Sam’s revisiting the house to bond with the teen housemates.
