For Miguel Tanfelix, learning doesn’t—and shouldn’t—stop
Miguel Tanfelix has enjoyed a good amount of variety in the roles he has played in his 15 years in show biz—from a boy with mental incapacity in his breakthrough show “Niño” to a resolute, young Badjao man in his ongoing drama series, “Sahaya.”
But he doesn’t want to stop there. “I want to explore more kinds of roles, perhaps an antihero. I also want to try action,” he said at his recent contract renewal with GMA 7—his mother network since finishing runner-up in the reality talent search “StarStruck Kids” in 2004.
For the 20-year-old actor, learning doesn’t—and shouldn’t
—stop. “I’m currently undergoing workshops to expand my skillset or discover what else I can do,” Miguel said. “I want to be versatile; the kind of actor that can give justice to any kind of role given to me.”
He admitted that he was feeling nervous prior to the contract signing. More work, of course, also means bigger responsibilities.
“But I’m ready to face that, work on that. I’m happy and I feel blessed that I’m still here, and will be staying here for more years to come,” related Miguel, who’s also part of the Michael V’s movie, “Family History,” which is currently in cinemas. “I promise to go beyond 100 percent and reciprocate all these blessings.”—ALLAN POLICARPIO
