Nathan Madrigal has been in the advertising world for seven years now, appearing in no less than 50 television and print ads. (Still counting pa raw yan, ha!)
“Nagstart lang yan nung may nag-message sakin na isang agency. Magpa-VTR daw ako. Di ko pa nga alam kung ano yun. Pumunta ako ng Makati for the VTR and then I got the part. Nagsunod-sunod na.” Nathan recalled. (Gusto kita sundan, bro, san ka man naroon!)
He feels blessed with the opportunities he has been getting in the industry.
“I have learned a lot of things like be on time, be professional, be friendly, always have that good attitude and huwag magpost ng behind the scenes ng shoot hanggang di lumalabas yung ad (laughs),” he said. (Ay, ako payag ako na ilabas mo ang behind-the-scenes natin, bro!)
The 25-year-old Culinary Arts graduate from the Center for Culinary Arts is set to conquer showbusiness as an actor. (Good timing, magiging actress na rin ako!)
“Naalala ko nung five years old ako, may nakita akong commercial sa TV. Sabi ko sa sarili ko, makikita rin ako sa tv someday, na magiging artista rin ako. I thank my mom for being supportive of the career path I want,“ Nathan shared (Ay, support kita, bro—may motor ka na ba?)
Nathan dreams of working with Coco Martin and Anne Curtis. (Sama mo naman ako sa dream mo, bro!)
“Nakawork ko na si Coco sa commercial, super cool nya. Napakahumble at magaan kawork. Di sya mayabang.
“Si Anne naman, sya talaga ang ultimate crush ko. Sana magkaroon kami ng drama project na matinding iyakan,” Nathan said. (Bro, ikaw ang ultimate at matindi para sakin!)
With his good looks and charm, he admits that he gets indecent proposals from gay co-workers and admirers. He even shared one incident in his WTFu on YouTube guest appearance, involving one hunk actor. (Ay, abangan nyo yan sa WTFu on YouTube! Nakaka-tense!)
“Sinasabi ko lang sa kanila, let’s be friends. Hanggang dun lang. if they offer money, I don’t get it. Mas ok pa rin na magtrabaho ng dugo at pawis mo,“ Nathan said. (Basta ako magpupunas ng pawis mo bro, ha! May ganon?!)
