GMA Artist Center Thanksgiving Dinner with Ruru, Gabrielle, Miggy and Bianca

4:36:00 AM

Last January, GMA Artist Center held a Thanksgiving Dinner for the Bloggers and I feel so happy to be part of it. Aside from having dinner with co-bloggers, we also got the chance to interview GMA's hottest stars of today: Bianca Umali, Gabrielle Garcia, Miggy Jimenez and Ruru Madrid.

Miggy Jimenez started out young in the showbizness. At the age of 3 he was already doing commercials. His biggest break was when he became part of the kid show "Tropang Potchi" where they tech children different good values that they should have plus a lot of adventure. With this show, Miggy was honed into into being a host and after that there were more shows line up for him, he became part of Futbolilits, One Day Isang Araw at With a Smile.

Right now, Miggy is part of GMA 7's newest teleserye "Once Upon a Kiss" starring Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix. He plays the role of "Micky" best friend of Miguel Tanfelix (Prince Almario) who will also fall in love with Bianca Umali (Ella) in the process.

When asked about the working relationship between Miguel and Bianca, he said that he doesn't have any problems working with them because he knew both Miguel and Bianca way back. He worked before with Miguel in Futbolilits and he also know Bianca ever since they were kids because she's also doing commercials before. Miggy feels happy for them both because finally they a teleserye of their own where they are the lead stars. 

Miggy just turned 16 last January 23 and his goal right now and to shed baby fats. He can be a leading man someday because at the age of 16, he's really tall. He also revealed his showbiz crush which is Heart Evangelista and Anne Curtis. He is doing home school but the good news is he will graduating this coming March 2015.

Aside from being busy with Once Upon a Kiss where she portrays the role of Ella, she is also part of the family themed sitcom Ismol Family every week at GMA 7.  Bianca admitted that she feels pressured doing Once Upon a Kiss especially because it's a lead role for both Miguel and her, “Hindi naman po maalis ‘yon, may pressure ta­laga. And other people kasi expect a lot from us po. Pero, as long as enjoy naman kami sa ginagawa namin, ok lang po ‘yon,”

When asked how comfortable she is now working with Miguel, she answered that they are much closer now since they get to hang out most of the time. "Si Miguel, funny siya kasi corny sya magpatawa." she said while smiling. Adding to that statement, “Very close talaga kami. Sobrang close friends na talaga kami ni Miguel. Kasi, ang dami na naming pinagsamahang shows. Parang pang-5 shows na yata namin ito na magkasama kami. Parang every project ko po, siya po talaga ang kasama ko.

“Mas may lalim na po ang friendship namin ni Miguel ngayon. Very comfortable na po kami sa isa’t isa. Kumbaga ngayon po, wala na kaming adjustment sa aming dalawa, kasi nga po kumportable na nga kaming kasama ang isa’t isa.”

Ruru Madrid and Gabrielle Garcia are now past the “getting to know you stage,” admitting that they enjoy each other’s company every chance they get. They've been together for numerous projects already like My Destiny and Seasons of Love and they gained fans because of this simply because their tandem gives fresh "Kilig" moments plus they really look good on the screen.

According to them, they will have a new project soon, and fans should watch out for it. Right now they are focussing on how to be better on their chosen craft. Every now and then they have workshops to improve their acting. As for Gabrielle, she is still studying and she wants to be a pilot someday. She also mentioned how she loves travelling and misses it too because right now, because of the busy schedule, her last out of the country was 2 years ago.  A lot of people are also encouraging her to join beauty pageants especially Binibining Pilipinas and she said, hopefully someday she can join and represent the country.

For Ruru, he said he dreams of being following the steps of his idol Ding Dong Dantes. He also wants to be a director and a producer someday which is why right now he wants to be a better actor, doing what he loves the most.

Even though they are both very close right now, they wanted to focus on their career. 
They even shared their memorable experience about Ruru's gift to Gabby. Since Gabby was wearing a necklace with a letter "R" on it, Ruru said that he bought it in Singapore and aside from being priceless, the experience of buying one for Gabby is also priceless because he 
almost didn't get the chance to give it to her.
