Ivan Dorschner Confesses He Wants Barbie Forteza And He To End Up With Each Other In 'Meant To Be'

IVAN DORSCHNER’s first claim to fame was when pop star Katy Perry performed here in Manila in 2012 then she asked someone to come up on stage while she’s performing. Ivan did and she even gets to kiss him. The video of their kissing scene went viral.

“It was my aunt who pushed me to go up on stage,” Ivan says. “I was so embarrassed but after the kiss, it all became unforgettable.”

He has now embarked on a new chapter in his career. “I went back to my studies in the States after that and tried to forget showbiz. But when James Reid came for a show there and we met, he encouraged me to return to Manila to try showbiz anew. And now, I’d like to thank GMA-7 dahil mas nakilala ako rito because of ‘Meant to Be’. People who see me in public now call me Ethan, my name in the show.”

It’s said that his tandem with Barbie Forteza as Billie has so many supporters, calling their love team as Vanbie. “Yes, I know. But in fairness, may kanya-kanya ring supporters yung love team ni Barbie with the other guys, sina Ken Chan, Jak Roberto and Addy Raz. But siempre, if you’d ask me, ako, gusto kong kami ni Barbie would end up with each other, kaya lang, it’s not for me to decide. Malayo pa naman ang tatakbuhin ng show so abangan na lang nila.”
