Last Septembver 21 on “ASAP,” the big deal was the first public appearance and performance of “Papa” Piolo Pascual with his 17-year-old scion and heir, Iñigo. They did a duet together, and the good news is that young Iñigo was able to adequately keep up with his dad in terms of singing and “projection”—not an easy thing to do for a total newcomer!

Actor Piolo Pascual, at age 37, is ready to quit acting. “I’d like to to do other things. I was burned out at one point. I wanted to spend my time with my son, take vacations, but couldn’t because I was tied up at work,” explained the star of ABS-CBN’s newest series, “Hawak Kamay.”
“Apoy sa Dagat” star Piolo Pascual on his son Iñigo: “Heartthrob sa school ’yun. Maraming mga babae sa States, medyo aggressive so nakakatuwa naman since he studies in a Christian school … Buti na nga lang medyo involved siya sa extra-curricular [activities], and siya mismo nagsasabi na kapag may mga ganung advances galing sa mga kaklase niya … bata talaga—siya rin ’yung natatakot, siya rin ’yung umiiwas.”
