Hero Angeles reflects on Star Circle days, thankful for how they changed his life
Hero Angeles reflected on the experiences he’s had and the people he met after joining Star Circle Quest 14 years ago.
The Star Circle Season 1 Grand Teen Questor wrote a lengthy message in an Instagram post yesterday, in which he narrated how the experiences led to many lessons learned and bonds created. Angeles wrote, “Napakarami kong nakilala at nakasalamuhang tao. Natutunan kong tuklasin ang mga kakayanan ko. Natuto din akong masaktan at lumaban. Di pa ganun ka-active ang social media noon kaya ngayon, pasasalamatan ko ulit ang lahat ng sumuporta sa akin.”
(I met and interacted with so many people. I learned to discover my talents. I also learned how to get hurt and fight. Social media wasn’t so active back then as it is now, so once again thank you to everyone who supported me.)
Angeles also reflected on his run as a celebrity since joining Star Circle Quest. He found all the experiences both lifting and humbling, thanks to the people he met along the way.
At the end of his message, the actor expressed happiness at what he has become and where he is now in his life, as well as at his experiences’ big impact on his life and the great opportunities they offered.
“Masaya ako sa kung anong mayroon at kung nasaan ako ngayon. Lahat ng ito ay di ko mararating kung ‘di dahil sa mga taong gumabay at sumuporta sa akin. Nabago ang buhay ko dahil sa oportunidad na ito. Tunay na napakagandang experience,” wrote Angeles.
Angeles rose to fame after his big win, alongside Sandara Park, who was a runner-up in the reality star search. The pair would end up becoming a popular love team that starred in hit movies including “Bcuz Of U” and “Can This Be Love.” They would later part ways, with Park heading to Korea where she became one of K-pop’s most internationally recognized artists.
In 2005, Angeles ended his contract with Star Magic. However, he continued to do some work as an actor while allocating time to finished his studies at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts in Diliman, Quezon City. In 2014 he launched ARTCETERO, an online art gallery where he shares his artworks including his famous miniature sculptures.
Angeles also had a solo art exhibit in 2015 called “Inkterlace:A Hero Angeles Interlacing Ink Art Exhibit,” at the CASSalida Theater in MSU – IIT, Iligan City.
To date, Angeles remains active as both an actor and an artist. /ra
