Sam Concepcion not bothered by slowing moving career

FOR SAM CONCEPCION, doing the front act for a big international star like Taylor Swift is an unforgettable experience. “I really felt proud to be part of a very big concert,” he says. “The production outfit that handled it really took good care of me and always checks if I’m doing okay even during the rehearsals pa lang. I was asked if I’d care to join Taylor Swift in the other countries where she’ll perform but I just can’t leave the country as I have plenty of commitments here. Isa na nga itong new show ko sa ABS-CBN, ‘Good Vibes’ that starts airing today after “ASAP”.

I believe everything happens for a reason and I’m glad I gave priority to ‘Good Vibes’ as I play the lead role as Marco Pedroza, a teener who thought he has a perfect life until he found out that his dad, Dominic Ochoa, has an anak sa labas, Enrique Gil, na iniuwi niya sa bahay namin. Doon nagsimula ang conflict kasi I can’t get along fine with my half brother.”

He won in the Little Big Star where Charice Pempengco was just a runner up. Doesn’t he feel his career is quite slow in taking off? “Okay lang, I’m not in a hurry. I’m still young anyway and it’s better to be slow but sure. Hindi naman ako pinababayaan ng ABS and I have a feeling ‘Good Vibes’ will open new doors for me.”
