“WILDFLOWER” actor Vin Abrenica feels happy for his older brother Aljur’s career, now that latter is working on his first lead role in an ABS-CBN TV series.
Aljur stars with Julia Montes, Shaina Magdayao and Paulo Avelino in the afternoon soap, “Asintado.”
Vin said it does not matter to him if he and Aljur work in the same network or not, as long as things are working out for his brother.
“I’m very thankful na nakabalik siya (lead projects). Ngayon magkasama kami ng network, it’s healthy. Everything is healthy. Meron siyang ‘Asintado’ na napakataas ng ratings,” Vin told reporters last weekend during rehearsals of Maja On Stage in Cebu City.
Aljur was first discovered by GMA Network after he won the “Ultimate Hunk” title for Starstruck in 2006.
He was paired with fellow “Starstruck” winner Kris Bernal in several TV projecst including “Dyesebel,” “The Last Prince,” “Coffee Prince,” and “Machete.”
In 2017, Aljur officially became part of the Kapamilya network and appeared in FPJ’s “Ang Probinsyano” episodes.
“Saktong sakto sa blessing ng baby. Dumating ‘yung blessing namin. It’s working out for him.
Finally, ngayon lahat nagiging maayos,” Vin said.
Aljur has a son named Alas with Kapuso star Kylie Padilla, daughter of action star Robin Padilla.
Since it was Vin who first transferred to ABS-CBN, he said he gave Aljur some tips during his guesting in the Sunday noontime show, ASAP.
He said people are very disciplined when it comes to the call time.
“Pag ang call time mo 7:30 dapat nasa set ka na ng 7 o’clock. Mas maaga kasi, disiplinado lahat. Pag na-miss ‘yung slot mo ng rehearsal mo, let us say na sasalang ka 7:30, at wala ka sa 7:30 maghihintay ka na matapos ang lahat ng ‘yun at huli kayo mag re-rehearse. So, disiplina ‘yun,” Vin said.
Vin transferred to ABS-CBN in 2016. He was first discovered by TV5 via the network’s talent search “Artista Academy” in 2012.
“Hindi ko maramdaman sa ibang station (discipline). Kasi alam mo naman na medyo light sa ibang station. Nagulat na lang ako dito na ang daming stars pero disiplinado in terms of work. They are very professional,” he said.
Vin is part of thecast of the hit afternoon series, “Wildflower” which will have its finale today.
