The up-and-coming Kapuso Actor Kelvin Miranda is sometimes mistaken as Daniel Padilla. At first sight, most of them would see Daniel Padilla in him even when they hear him talking, he even sounds like Daniel.
But what are his thoughts about this, does Kelvin Miranda intentionally do it? In the media conference of The Lost Recipe, the actor finally put the questions at rest.
“Hinde ko po sinasadya natural lang po yun,” Said Kelvin. He also argued that his speaking voice is his natural voice which he has a hard time changing, “Di ko nga alam kung paano ko babaguhin yung speaking voice ko kase natural na nga po.”
“Ultimo sa pag kanta ‘medyo’ mag katunog kame ng boses hindi ko naman sinasadya kase mahirap po talaga baguhin ang boses, natural po yun,” Kevin stressed.
Now that the 22-year-old star is in his biggest break on TV as Chef Harvey Napoleon in GTVs’ The Lost Recipe, the actor admitted that he finally felt ‘changed’ in his career.
“Sa totoo lang po ang laki po eh naninibago po ako sa transition ng career ko ang laking pagbabago, dami kong narealize din sa loob ng industriya na lahat ng nangyari parte yan ng journey at may tamang oras lang para sayo maaring hinde pa itong opportunity mo, pero hinde pa ito talga yung pinaka only time will tell and kompyansa ko talga bumalik siya.”
He also pointed out how people start recognizing him for who he is, “Mas na rerecognize na po ako ngayon, sa GMA nakakatuwa kahit mga staffs mismo ng GMA na binabati nila ako.”
Because of the opportunity that he was given as the lead actor of The Lost Recipe, he felt that he gave justice to Chef Harvey Napoleon.
“Tinatawagan nila ako sa pangalan ng character ko nakakakatuwa kase ibig sabihin na re recall nila yung character mo tumatatak sa kanila,” Kelvin gladly said.
Miranda auditioned for Star Magic in 2017 and passed the initial screenings, but was later dismissed by management due to absences. His absences were due to his introversion, which discouraged him from seeking a career in the entertainment industry.
“May weight na po siya actually pag pumupunta po ako ng grocery kahit naka mask and face shield na po ako nakikila nila ako kahit di ako nakikita, kase ako nahihirapan akong makilala yung tao pag nakatago pero pag ako kilala parin nila ako.”
However, with the assistance of his manager, he signed a deal with GMA Artist Center in June of that year. Currently, Kelvin Miranda, who plays the lead in The Lost Recipe, recently won the Best Young Actor award at the 7th Urduja Heritage Film Awards.
The Lost Recipe is currently in its final week on GTV. During Twitter Philippines’ first three days of service, it was also a consistent topic in the top trending topics. The Lost Formula improved ratings not only for GNTV’s primetime block but also for the Top 20 Urban Phils as a whole (based on Nielsen NUTAM overnight data).
