The holiday spirit in the country is very strong this year with people feeling more optimistic than they were in the previous years. It is Christmas time, of course! And just like everyone else, stars in the local tinsel town are in festive mood.
Here, we are listing down a few celebrities who have made some wishes this season. Will Father Christmas grant their wishes? Well, it depends if they have been naughty or nice.
The Kapuso star has been getting acting breaks of late. After appearing in GMA 7’s primetime drama, My Destiny in 2014, she landed on sweet roles in Let the Love Begin and Instadad. Her biggest break though is her being cast in the reboot of Encantadia playing Alena, the guardian of water. The fantasy series is extended due to public’s warm reception.
“I can no longer ask for more, I am more thankful for the opportunities I received this year. 2016 has been a great year for me. Of course, I wish to be more visible on TV and to have more projects like Encantadia.”
She only had one wish this Christmas. She wanted to bring home the crown at the prestigious Miss World pageant. She had a fleeting moment when she made it to the top 5 and gave, according to pageant aficionados, the best answer during the Q and A portion. She went home without a crown but she definitely won the heart of many who believe in her genuine desire to win the coveted title and make a difference by “holding that torch high enough to make everyone see and feel its light.”
While everyone is into parties, Papa P is spending his Christmas and Misa de Gallo with his son, Iñigo Pascual. The seasoned actor wants to keep the celebration local and spiritual that’s why he didn’t book any holiday vacation just like what most big stars do. Being selfless and humble, the hunk daddy wishes good tidings not for himself but for Filipino families. He wants them to be safe this holiday season and advises everyone to have a deeper and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
When she bagged the role of Danaya in the top-rating primetime series, Encantadia, people started to notice how good she is a television talent. She was discovered by the late Master Showman German Moreno back in 2012, after which, she appeared in several bit roles in multiple GMA 7 afternoon soaps. Now, Sanya could only wish for more projects as she’s able to prove that she can deliver and take on big roles just like any other rising young actors around.
For 11 years, the singer-TV host has been giving back to Child Haus, a non-government organization that shelters cancer patients while undergoing medical treatment in Manila. Now, the celebrity philanthropist took it to another level by playing Mother Santa. She has just unveiled a musical project called Akay, which advocates Child Haus’ mission to allow cancer patients have a happy, healthy, and productive life. Now she only wishes that everyone fulfill the children’s Christmas wishes this year by donating via Pledge (myPledge.site).
The down-to-earth Pambansang Bae only wishes to celebrate his Christmas with his loved ones back in their hometown in Laguna. It’s a known fact that since the astronomic rise of AlDub, the bedimpled showbiz golden boy barely had time for himself and his family. Alden welcomes the holiday season with gratitude for yet another successful year for him. Just recently, his Wish I May album has been certified Diamond, he hosted Asian TV Awards along with the region’s TV heavyweights, and now, he and Maine Mendoza are finally staring in a television series that they can call their own.
