Benjamin Alves, the latest addition to GMA Network’s roster of stars, was presented to some members of the entertainment press on Tuesday after he was officially welcomed to the Kapuso network last Sunday, June 24, in the afternoon musical variety program Party Pilipinas.
During the interview, Benjamin talked about his on-going movie project “Guni Guni,” a production of Regal Films slated to hit theatres this August. He stars in the film alongside the beautiful and talented Kapuso actress Lovi Poe.
Asked about how it was working with Lovi, Benjamin was all-praises for the actress.
“Lovi is such a nice person. I’m so lucky to have such a big [project] and to have Lovi as my leading lady. She keeps me at ease. The biggest adjustment for me was that I can’t relax as normally as I can. Seeing Lovi being relaxed, being down to earth and being someone that I can talk to, nakakagaan talaga ng loob,” he said.
Benjamin, however, admitted that he felt very nervous when he was told that he was going to do a kissing scene with Lovi in the film.
“(Laughs) We had a ‘moment’ there (laughs). Yeah, we had a kissing scene (laughs). It was a little awkward kasi it was a first for me but after the first take, we’re fine. The good thing about Lovi is that she does not make it any weirder than it has to be; game din siya. For your co-actor to be like that, you have to make sure that you take the job seriously as well,” Benjamin said.
So how did it go?
“Interesting (laughs). Interesting because of the set-up. Kasi everyone’s watching us e (laughs). But I don’t kiss and tell, so.. (laughs),” he said.
Benjamin grew up in Guam where he graduated summa cum laude in college. He took up AB English and is planning to pursue graduate studies. Despite his American upbringing, Benjamin is lucky to be able to speak Tagalog fluently without the “twang,” which usually hinders most aspiring Filipinos who grew up abroad from making it big in the local entertainment industry.
Although being compared with his uncle Piolo Pascual seems inevitable, Benjamin hopes that he would have the opportunity to establish his career in the showbiz industry on his own.
“It’s unfair to expect someone to achieve in a day what he [Piolo] had achieved in years. But I do hope that in due time, I’d be as successful as he is,” he said.

Ever since playing the role of Samuel Zaragoza in the sexy afternoon soap “Sisid,” actor Marc Acueza has been enjoying a steady rise as one of TV’s promising talents. His new TV commercial promoting Lucky Me’s Supreme Jjampong has attracted his ever-increasing number of fans; with them finding the TVC extra cool, thanks to his superb acting ability. He had to fly to South Korea, where the product comes from, to shoot the commercial.
Observers think of the GMA Artist Center talent as naturally gifted in terms of acting that many of his supporters at first did not realize it’s him starring in the commercial. That is proof that he can genuinely appear as another person if artistically required.
One fan pointed out, “You’re such a great artist. Simple lang pero hindi dinadaan sa pa-cute ang pag arte. Galing mo po. Natural na talent talaga. Keep up the good work and more projects to come.”
In “Sisid,” Marc co-starred with leads Jackie Rice, JC Tiuseco, and Dominic Roco. Even if categorized as a recurring cast, viewers found his screen time well-spent, ushering a new start in his career following a seemingly a lull he didn’t deserve.
Before becoming a Kapuso talent, Marc acted as Sixto in the last installment of Ai AI de las Alas-starred series “Tanging Ina.” He showcased his skill anew as Alvin in the sine novela “Trudis Liit,” featuring Jillian Ward in the title role. At present he is playing a crucial role in the series “Broken Vow” as TVCs and TV shows continue to fill up his hectic schedule.
His ultimate dream is to be cast as a leading man in a drama series. He would love to work with actress Lovi Poe, another Kapuso act, if given the opportunity. It is just a matter of time before he becomes a leading man on TV or the big screen.
