- Paul shares his thoughts regarding his transfer of network
Comebacking Kapuso actor, Paul Salas, after staying with ABS-CBN under the Star Magic label for nine years has returned to his first network. He started his career back in 2004 through GMA Network’s talent search, ‘StarStruck Kids,’ alongside Miguel Tanfelix, Sandy Talag, Bea Binene & many others.
In a recent blog conference on February 26, Paul Salas openly shared his stand on transferring to the GMA Network. He was with John Abalos and Edgar Allan Guzman, who also changed networks.
During the conference, he claimed that he is very much excited because for the first time, he is again cast in a television series. He also added that he is amazed by the unique concept that the network brings, and this is one of the network’s strengths. “Oo sobrang excited kasi for how many years first time ko ulit lumabas sa isang teleserye, so excited ako.”
“Ang GMA po talaga ay the best sa paggawa ng fantaserye kumabaga professional na sila dyan eh, so karangalan po samin ang maisali sa mga ganung plot. Tulad nga nitong KaraMia. Mahirap po pero nakakaexcite siya ishoot, nakakaexcite siya na ipakita sa tao na yung mga pinaghirapan tlga namin.”
When asked on being a comebacking actor in GMA Network, what does he think he can offer?
He answered, “Yung talent po namin talaga na kaya po naming ipakita na kaya ko ng action, drama… Na hindi lang ako pang pa-cute na roles. And kaya ko rin magperform, kumanta, at sumayaw.”
He also shared that his initial expectation is just to stay longer in the industry, nothing more like being very famous. “Hindi ko naman po in-expect talaga na sumikat, ang akin lang is yung tumagal sa industriya, like ng mga titos ko.”
He was also asked that as a child actor what can he advice to newbies in the industry, he said, “Huwag gawin laro talaga, kasi ako naexperience ko nay an eh ginagawa kong laro, iniisip ko na parang laro-laro lang to. Eh naisip ko na di naman pala talaga kasi kung passion mo talaga yung pag-aact. Hanganga ngayon nagwoworkshop parin nga ako eh. So ayun, wag nilang gawing laro kundi gawin nilang trabaho, mahalin nila ang trabaho, maging mabait sa lahat, okay sa lahat and syempre confidence.”
Paul Salas wants to be remembered as someone who is not only good at acting but also as a performer, like dancing and singing. His friends are very proud of him, having seen him grow and achieve a lot in his teen years.
“Ako siguro yung di lang kilala bilang magaling umarte, magaling na artista gusto ko rin marinig na ‘Itong si Paul magaling na performer rin eto, magaling rin sumayaw and kumanta. Tuwang-tuwa lang sila na bumalik na ako sa teleserye, excited sila na makita ako ulit sa TV.”
As someone who started from a reality show, he encourages people to also join and be inspired to try and enjoy the journey.
“Para sa mga may balak sumali sa reality show, di nila pagsisihin dahil sobrang enjoy.”
Being with the GMA Network again, he stated that he did not have any difficulty in having friends because back when he was still in the Kapamilya network, he already befriended other network artists from his direct friends.
“Madami, dati pa marami talaga akong naging close nung dun pa ako sa kabilang network, so di na mahirap sakin nung pumalit ako dito sa GMA, sobrang dali lang.”
As one of the cast of the new primetime series ‘Kara Mia,’ he does check the daily ratings but it does not negatively affect him at all, in fact it even pushes him to do better.
“Talagang mas nagaganahan kami mag promote, and gawin ng mas magaling pa ang trabaho, ako lagi kong tinitingnan actually, di naman din nakakaaffect sakin kung mababaw or anything, kung mas mataas okay lang and gawin lang kung paano mas mapaganda ang show.”
Paul lastly added that being in the industry for fifteen years, made him mature enough to handle issues and rumors.
He stated, “Dati kasi, may negative sakin sinabi sa twitter, sinagot ko and sobrang nagburst-out ako and nagging lesson sakin yun, kumbaga nagging mature ako dahil dun, lagi ko pinagiisip na may kasama pang moral, so after ako sabihan ng family ko and ng management, dahil dun nagging mature ang pagiisp ko. Hangang ngayon kung ano man negative sinasabi sakin, pinababayaan ko.”
