Mark Herras admitted that he’s currently not happy if he’s to assess the state of his career now, although he asserted that he remains grateful for the work he’s doing.

Sitting down with entertainment reporter Ogie Diaz, the “StarStruck” alum was asked if he’s happy with his career, “Itong nangyayari sakin ngayon? Syempre hindi (With what’s happening to me now? Of course, not),” he frankly replied. 


Herras declared that he doesn’t want to talk or dwell on his past decisions that led his career to be where it is right now. 


“Binabase ko kasi ito na lang ba ‘yung pwedeng ibigay sakin or pwede kong gawin? ‘Yun na lang ba ‘yung worth ko bilang artista? Kasi kung ito na lang may ibang options. I’ll try my luck sa kung ano mang klaseng trabaho sa industriya. What’s happening with my career now, ayoko sinisisi sa mga tapos na,” he said. 

(I’m basing this on, is this the only thing that can be given to me or that I can do? Is that all I’m worth as an actor? Because if it is, then there are other options. I’ll try my luck at any kind of job in the industry. But what’s happening with my career now? I don’t want to blame it on the things that happened in the past.)

The “bad boy of the dance floor” remarked that he is hopeful he will still have the chance to turn things around and reiterated that he remains grateful to his network for giving him something to work on.

“I’m still hoping na maging okay pa. Hindi ko naman sinasabi na wala na akong career. Hanggang may kumukuha pa sakin, sa mga raket… Happy ako kasi lahat naman tayo kapag may trabaho masaya. Never naman ako nagdemand. Kung ano ‘yung role na pwedeng ibigay sakin,” expressed the actor. 

(I’m still hoping that it will still turn out okay. I’m not saying that I don’t have a career anymore. As long as someone still hires me, I’m happy because we’re all happy when we have a job. I have never demanded for any role that could be given to me.)

The “Forever in My Heart” actor also shared that his greatest fear is not being able to provide for his family without his work.


“Kapag naiisip ko na, in like a month or two baka pwedeng wala akong gawing trabaho… Ayoko lang dumating sa point na mawala sakin ‘yung anak ko. ‘Yung hindi mo na maibigay ‘yung dapat for them. Ayun ‘yung nagpapadepress sakin, ‘yung pag naiisip ko, provider ako. ‘Yung pinaka kinakatakot ko ‘yung mawalan ako ng trabaho at mawala sakin ‘yung pamilya ko,” he said.

(When I think about it, in like a month or two I might not be able to do any work… I just don’t want to get to the point where I might lose my child because I can no longer give what should be for them. That’s what depresses me, worries me, I’m a provider. What I fear the most is losing my job and losing my family.)
