The former Star Circle Quest Grand Questor Hero Angeles had encountered several issues on the alleged management of his career, but where is the actor already?
The last news we heard of Hero, he left his show in Kuya Germ’s ‘Walang Tulugan’ and that was two years ago. And his last t.v. soap opera projects are in GMA Network also last 2009 where he portrayed a role as ‘Junby’ in Dear Friend: Karibal,; as Benny / Benjamin Valderama (Special Guest Role) in Sine Novela: Paano Ba Ang Mangarap?; and as Alguwas in ‘Luna Mystika’. His last film is Sundo, where he played the role of Eric. He even wrote, directed, and produced his own film entitled ‘Stockroom’; he portrayed Samio in the lead role.
Hero studied film at UP while doing a comeback in showbiz. He was supposed to play a role in Endless Love, a project which was worked out by Kuya Germs, but , Henry, the actor’s brother/manager declined the offer for some sort of problems on the supposed role and dialogues of the actor in the remake of Koreanovela.
Tracing back the career of the former teen actor, he started his flight in showbiz after he won in SCQ and became a real life boyfriend to Sandara Park, whom Hero was teamed-up. The love team reached the peak of its popularity after they had made the film ‘Bcuz of U’ in 2004, and was later followed with ‘Can This Be Love’ in 2005.
Semblance with Alden Richards
I am not sure if many notice that Hero and Alden have the same look. When I saw Alden in television I really thought that Hero had finally returned in showbiz. Upon looking them both one would think that the other one is a replica of the other one. The actors also look of the same height; and also have the same deep dimple, in which I think is the significant feature on their face.
Alden Richards is born as Richard Faulkerson Jr. on January 3, 1993 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, and took up Business Administration at De La Salle Canlubang in Biñan, Laguna. He is a television actor and model who is currently signed to GMA Network. He appeared in Alakdana and Tween Hearts and his breakthrough movie, The Road. The film ‘The Road’ is one the biggest project that he had, since the film had international screenings in most of the cinemas in U.S.
It was actually his dream to be in the showbiz. In fact he auditioned in PBB Teen Clash 2010 and in Starstruck for a chance to be noticed by the industry but he failed to be part of any of the reality shows. But things happen for a reason, now he is one of the sought after boy next door in showbiz.
Though just early in the business he had already won five significant awards in his talent, these are: In 2012 Golden Screen Awards Breakthrough Performance by an Actor , and PMPC Star Awards for Movies New Movie Actor of the Year; and in 2011, 59th FAMAS Awards German Moreno Youth Achievement Awardee , Golden Screen Awards Best New Actor, and 1st Yahoo OMG Awards Amazing Male Newcomer.
Hero might no longer exist either in television or in the big screen, but his replica would have been reminisced of the then ‘Hero Angeles’ (disclaimer: I’m not after with comparing them).
