Pauleen Luna’s 25-year-old brother has formally joined the showbiz industry after signing a contract with Viva Artists Agency (VAA).
In a GMA News report, Miguel “Migz” Luna said that his sister Pauleen, Eat Bulaga! dabarkads and married to bossing Vic Sotto, is supportive of his decision to join show business.
“Sabi niya sa akin, mahirap talaga sa simula,” said Migz on his sister’s message to him, “Matagal, pagtitiyagaan talaga, but gagaling naman kung aayusin.”
Unlike his sister who started early by joining Eat Bulaga’s Little Miss Philippines, Migz had second thoughts about being a celebrity and opted to finish two courses first and help out in the family business.
“Noong bata po ako, nagdadalawang-isip ako. Hindi ko alam kung bakit,” he narrated,
“Wala po nag-convince sa akin, parang gusto ko lang i-try.”
The newcomer added: “Yung mom ko, bata pa lang ako, gusto niya ako mag-artista, pero hindi niya ako pinilit dahil nag-aaral pa ako noon.
“Tuwang-tuwa naman po siya ngayon.”
Migz is not banking on his sister’s popularity to do well in showbiz; though having appeared in bit roles in the past, he said that he still underwent several workshops to prepare him for his showbiz entry.
“Nag-decide ako na mag-artista simula po last year, nag-workshop ako, workshop nang paulit-ulit,” he said, “Nag-guest na ako dati sa mga television show, puro bit roles lang, like Wattpad, parang medyo kontrabida; at sa ibang shows ng GMA-7, like Little Nanay.”
When asked about the roles that he wants to play, Migz said that he’s open to trying out everything. “Gusto ko ma-try lahat ng roles, kahit bakla, lalaki… kahit ano talaga. Gusto ko ma-try bida, kontrabida,” he said.
Migz signed a contract with VAA last April 21 together with other upcoming artists Mayton Eugenio, at Julian Trono, and the returning Rainier Castillo.
