Saviour and Tanya Ramos, children of the Ultimate Hunk Wendell Ramos, follow in their dad’s footsteps as they officially become Kapuso talents.
The biggest contract-signing event of GMA Network Signed for Stardom was aired on its Sunday variety show, All-Out Sundays, on Sunday, September 5.
In a virtual media conference held on Thursday, September 30, Saviour and Tanya share their aspirations in joining showbiz.
For Saviour, he dreams of surpassing Wendell as an actor.
“Yung big dream ko po talaga is malagpasan ko po yung dad ko. Yun po talaga ang dream ko,” he said.
As a Kapuso talent, the 22-year-old son of Wendell also wanted to be known as a drama actor.
“Gusto ko pong makilala bilang isang drama actor hindi po as sexy and comedian.”
In 2020, Saviour already starred in a couple of BL mini-series such as Unlocked and Happenstance.
Meanwhile, his younger sibling Tanya wanted to follow in their father’s footsteps in acting.
“Big dream for me is to actually follow the footsteps of my dad kasi he’s been such a good inspiration to me.”
When they entered showbiz and decided to sign with GMA Network through its talent center GMA Artist Center, Saviour admitted that his father was surprised to see him decide to become an actor.
“Actually yung sa’kin po, nagulat talaga yung dad ko. Hindi po n’ya alam na nag-audition ako. Hindi ko po kasi sinabi na mag-audition ako.
“So dumaan po ako sa hard phase po. Yung wala talagang parang contacts gano’n. Ayun po, nagulat s’ya and sobrang na-proud po s’ya,” he admitted.
However, his sister Tanya believed that their decision to enter the showbiz industry was no surprise to Wendell, knowing that he has been training them to live and act like artists.
“Yung sa’kin naman po, s’yempre he was very proud of me and my brother. I think he wasn’t surprised at all.
“Kasi parang tinrain n’ya na po kami, yung personality namin, yung kumbaga he gave us values and gano’n na n’ya po kami pinalaki.
“I think na he was very proud of course kasi hindi naman yata lahat natatanggap. Me and my brother also went through auditions and mga panels. So I think we worked hard naman po to achieve this.”
The two also shared the best advice they received from their father.
Saviour said that his father told him that being an actor is a “lifestyle” and should be more responsible now that they are in showbiz.
“Yung lagi n’ya pong sinasabi sa’min ng sister ko is ‘ang pagiging artista is hindi yan biro, lifestyle yan.
“Kailangan mong maging mas responsable and kailangan mong maging mas focused everyday ‘pag naging artista ka, and lahat ng ginagawa mo is dapat pinag-iisipan mo.'”
Also, whatever role they may be given, they should give their best.
“So ‘yun po ang ginagawa namin ng sister ko. Basta may role daw po kahit small roles ‘yan, ipasok mo ang puso mo do’n.
“Kahit ayaw mo yung role, ipasok mo ang puso mo kasi do’n ka mas matututo and mas mapupuntahan ang success, and gagaling kang actor,” he added.
Aside from Saviour and Tanya, showbiz royalties include Michael V.’s daughter Brianna Bunagan, Roi Vinzon’s daughter, Lala, Melissa Mendez’s Alexandra Yap, and Niño Muhlach’s son Sandro also signed their respective contracts in the Signed for Stardom.
New talents such as Hannah Argueles, Kirsten Gonzales, Ashley Alcayde, Gab Yabut, Shanelle Agustin, Matt Lozano, Coleen Paz, Jeff Moses, Sheemee Buenaobra, Levince Sotto, Lyme Arana, Carlo San Juan, Gabrielle Hahn, and Seb Pajarillo also inked their contracts in the event.
