RETURNING Kapuso star Paul Salas admitted, “Medyo nagkulang lang dun sa ABS dahil hindi rin ako naka-teleserye ng ilang years.”
The actor recently signed a co-management contract with GMA Artist Center of GMA Network and PPL Entertainment.
He was first launched in 2004 through the Kapuso artista search StarStruck Kids.
However, in 2008, he transferred to ABS-CBN and became a lead star of Kung Fu Kids (2008). Since he stayed in the Kapamilya Network for nine years, he admitted it was difficult for him to leave Star Magic.
“Kasi, parang naging bahay ko na rin yun. Doon ako lumaki sa ABS,” Paul was quoted as saying in an article published by PUSH.
He chose to be co-managed by Perry Lansigan of PPL Entertainment who also handles the career of Dingdong Dantes, among others.
“With PPL naman po, nakita ko po sina Tito Dingdong kung gaano nila trinust si Tito Perry, at nakita kong maganda yung career nilang lahat.
“So, naisip ko na kay Tito Perry na talaga ako papahawak. No doubt na, hindi na ako nag-isip kung kanino pang manager.”
The 20-year-old actor said he did not burn any bridges when he left ABS-CBN.
“Graceful exit naman. At saka, marami na rin po akong naging close dun, mga handlers kasi ang tagal na rin po. Simula bata ako, naabutan na nila akong lumaki dun. Wala naman pong problema. Nagpaalam naman ako nang maayos.”
Did he have any complaint about the way ABS-CBN handled his career?
“Wala naman po akong tampo. Passion ko po talaga ang pag-acting. Yung mata-try ko ang iba’t ibang role. Kaso, medyo nagkulang lang dun sa ABS dahil hindi rin ako naka-teleserye ng ilang years.
“Pero masaya ako dahil nagge-guesting-guesting din ako sa MMK [Maalaala Mo Kaya] nila. Pero for a change na rin talaga,” he ended.
