- Alden Richards laid out his plans for his showbiz career next year
- He expressed his willingness to work in the international scene to gain more experience
- He recently starred in the blockbuster film Hello, Love, Goodbye
Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards is now preoccupied with his career plans for next year. After he received from the Asian Star Prize award (14th Seoul International Drama Awards), starred in the record-breaking movie Hello, Love, Goodbye, and led the trending primetime series The Gift, GMA Artist Center has finalized his projects for 2020.
The Pambansang Bae wants to expand his network when it comes to being an artist. He also plans to travel to other countries for possible collaboration projects with foreign producers and other groups involved in the entertainment business.
The Gift star said that he wanted to gain more experience and expand his capability as an actor hopefully in other countries.
“Hopefully do more movies, do more storytelling. Do more na mga bagay na makakadagdag pa sa career and sa experience ko bilang actor. Meet new people sa abroad especially para ma-expand ‘yung horizons ng acting.
“And at the same time mas lumawak ‘yung network ng mga kakilala mo sa industriya and mas maganda kapag if you get to meet new people that you share the same passion with para at least same page kayo kapag when you are together,” the award-winning Kapuso actor shared in an interview with GMA News.
Despite his success as an actor, Alden pointed out that it is still important to maintain a balanced life and set limitations to work.
“Siyempre importante ‘yun para hindi ma-burn out kasi ang hirap naman talaga na experience ko ‘yun na in my almost 10 years in the industry I’ve experienced a lot of busyness already.
“Kumbaga nadaan ko na siya lahat, dinadaanan ko pa rin siya up to this point, so as I go along pag-aaralan mo na balansehin ‘yung ginagawa ko, ‘yung mga dapat at ‘di dapat gawin.
“Sometimes okey lang na humindi for yourself, kasi siyempre ikaw ‘yan, eh. Ikaw ‘yung kailangan magtrabaho so siyempre alagaan mo rin ‘yung sarili mo,” Alden explained.
He continued, “And at the same time pag kaya mong pagsabayin good din ‘yun. Siyempre ako against sa mantra ko ‘yung humindi sa trabaho and opportunities, kasi it keeps me going and that’s the reason why I’m here in this industry.
“And siyempre at the same time you find things that you enjoy in the work that you do, ‘yung mga trabaho mo maghanap ka ng enjoyment doon para at least hindi mo iisiping nagtatrabaho ka,” he said.
Alden is one of the most talked-about showbiz nowadays. He gained more popularity after pairing up with Kapamilya actress Kathryn Bernardo in the now highest-grossing Filipino film of all time Hello, Love, Goodbye. Playing the role of a bartender based in Hong Kong, Alden has been hailed as the Box Office King of the year.
Many believed that the Kapuso actor was “saved” by the blockbuster film from the lowest point of his acting career.
