When Miguel Villacis joined Face of the Year 2018, his dream was to enter show business. He needed the exposure to get into show business. And he succeeded in making the competition his stepping stone.
Too bad Miguel did not win (he emerged just one of the runners-up) but he won four special awards. It was good enough for him; after all he gained notice – which was really his intention – and now he is on his way to stardom. He is set to do an indie movie and his single, “Target Date” will soon be released.
He is taking acting and singing workshop under Elson Montalbo of Viva.
Asked what his preference is, whether to be an actor or singer, Miguel said he’d like to do both, although he’d like most to be known as an actor, following in the footsteps of his idols Jericho Rosales and Piolo Pascual whose acting, he noted, are very natural and effortless. He likes Jericho’s “Siargao,” by the way.
He would like to do dramatic roles, but “I also like to do action roles, even kontrabida roles, which are more challenging,” he said. Among the young actresses, Miguel said he’d like to be paired with Bianca Umali whose latest TV show was the well-loved GMA primetime series “Kambal, Karibal.” When he was in high school (at Letran), Miguel was into sports – martial arts like karate and basketball. He played with the Philippine Team.
He is currently studying at Trinity College (taking up Marketing). “I’d like to be a businessman someday and put up my own restaurant.” At the moment, Miguel is the endorser of Cafe Marla. He has also been tapped to endorse a gasoline brand.
