MIGO ADECER turned 21 last December 20 and he says he has matured enough since the time he won as Ultimate Male Survivor in Starstruck in 2015.

“I was just 15 years old then,” he says. “I was so young and inexperienced. I’ve learned so much from the past five years and I’m definitely a different person now than when I started. 

"Definitely, I’m better with my craft now. It was hard, there were lots of difficult times, it’s been a humbling experience.  But I can really say that the good things outweigh the bad ones naman. I’m very grateful to GMA for giving me the chance to be in showbiz.”

He got noticed for his role in “Sahaya” with Bianca Umali last year and he’s happy that he now plays another lead role in “Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday” as Cocoy, the guy who comes between sisters Barbie Forteza as Ginalyn and Kate Valdez as Caitlyn. 

The show was suspended for seven months because of the pandemic lockdown but it’s now back on the air at 8 PM weeknights on GMA Telebabad. He also gets to sing and dance on weekends in “All Out Sundays”. How is it doing lock in taping?

“Actually, mas mabilis ang trabaho kasi everyone’s already on the set everyday,” he says. “Everything is so efficient. 

"Lahat ng tao, they respect your personal space kasi we all know the dangers and concerns about the virus that might spread around. Everything that we use on the set is properly sanitized so you really feel safe.”

How else did the pandemic help him? 

“I find myself closer to God. The pandemic gave me to take some time for myself. Dahil walang work, I was able to de-stress. 

"For an artist in showbiz, seven months is quite a long time to be away from working before the camera. 

"So the lockdown allowed me to take time to rest and breathe and not to have any big work responsibility. So when I was called to resume our taping, I was so ready and willing to work again.”
