Will New GF Winwyn Marquez Help Push Mark Herras' Career That Pales In Comparison With Starstruck Co-Winner Jennylyn Mercado

MARK HERRAS was the top male winner in the very first Starstruck but compared to his female counterpart, Jennylyn Mercado, there’s no doubt that Mark’s career definitely pales in comparison. Jen is now doing hit movies and winning best actress awards where as Mark played a mere supporting role in his last show, “Little Nanay”, as the brother of title roler Kris Bernal.

Well, we’re glad for Mark, who’s turning 30 years old this December, as GMA-7 seems ready to give his career a big boost as he stars now in not just one but two new shows. First, he’s the leading man of Yasmien Kurdi and Katrina Halili in the soap, “Sa Piling ni Nanay”, that starts airing June 27 to replace “Hanggang Makita Kang Muli”. Then he will also do comedy in the new sitcom, “Conan The Beautician”, co-starring with Miss World Megan Young plus comedians Betong Sumaya, Jerald Napoles and Boobsie Wonderland. This is produced by GMA News and Public Affairs.

Mark is now a single dad so he has to really work hard to give his love child a good future. His daughter is named Ada and the mom is his former handler. We do hope these new shows will give his sagging career the boost it badly needs, especially now that he seems to be devoting more time to his lovelife.

He’s just seen with his current inamorata, WinWyn Marquez in Hongkong, their first trip together abroad. Judging from the photos that they post on social media, they’re obviously so much in love with each other. We also wish that their love affair will have a positive effect on them and give more shine and luster to their respective careers which, we have to admit, are neither here nor there.
