Catapulted into the spotlight after landing second place in “Pilipinas Got Talent’s” third season, Khalil Ramos feels very blessed to have gotten the role of Kiko in primetime teleserye “Princess and I” in the short time he is in showbiz. He was very thrilled to see his face every day on TV and in the primetime slot nonetheless. Although he is thankful to have broken into the world of acting, Khalil emphasizes that his number one priority is still his singing career. Wanting to perform in front of people since the age of five, Khalil says he wouldn’t mind doing a dramatic show again or an action teleserye in the future. Khalil says he felt really challenged with his stint on “Princess and I,” because aside from it being his first ever teleserye, he was able to work alongside known personalities like Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Gretchen Barretto and Albert Martinez.

Seriously, Star Magic? Ano bang meron kay Kit Thompson na wala kay Marlo Mortel? At saka sana bigyan niyo rin ng magandang break si Jane Oineza. She's the next Angel Aquino and Jodi Sta. Maria. Huwag niyong ibalewala ang talent ng mga bagets na ito para lamang sa mga talentless at nakadepende sa showbiz roots. yun lang po.

ms gusto ko p rin si Marlo Mortel talented tlga.. singer n at mgaling s acting.. super duper bagay sila ni Janella.

Kung may Star Magic Batch 2014, sana isali nila si Marlo Mortel. Actually, hindi naman siya ubod ng kagwapuhan pero malakas ang appeal niya at napakatalented. Pero sana makilala din siya sa kanyang individual success hindi yung nakadikit lamang siya kay Janella.

Anonymous,  January 21, 2014 at 10:44 AM  

Jon mayabang naman po goodluck sa kanya.. Si Kit naman weirdo! Kuya Khalil good voice! Kuya jerome mabait at pogi pa! bagay sila ni Julia!

Anonymous,  February 25, 2014 at 6:28 PM  

Nahuli daw si Kit sa Pampanga during the 7107 musicfest dahil sa droga. Sa palagay ko, trulalu ito kasi may mga tsismis dati tungkol sa paggamit niya ng ipinagbabawal na gamot. Kaya pala nung napanood ko siya sa Galema eh sobrang laki ng ipinayat niya. Ano bang nakita ni Jane kay Kit? Diba nililigawan niya yun. Naku, huwag lang sana mahawa si Jane sa pagiging wild nito.. O baka nahawa na ata? Magaling na aktres si Jane pero may something sa batang yan. Something na hindi ko maexplain.

Kaya hindi sinali dito si marlo mortel kasi may humaharang sa career nya. Inggit yata kasi the public loves him. Extra lang sya sa BCWMH pero sya ng mas napansin. Charismatic appeal, proven by his MMK rating. Marlo can sing, dance and act. At may timing sa pagpapatawa. Remember the "butiki" joke?!

..sana kasali c marlo mortel..may potential dn nman sia..kala ku nga ksali sia sa star magic..wag nman lagi anak ng isang celebrity

Sana tuloy2 na ang success ng kanyang career w his loveteam Jane. Sana iguest ulit sila sa kristv dahil dito naunang nakita na may chemistry sila <3

joan grace December 22, 2014 at 2:36 PM  

Although Jerome eh hindi naman kasing ganda ang bosea at kasing galing sumayaw. I can see that he has an impressive potential in acting like John Lloyd, Rico Yan and more.
