According to Arron Villaflor, his current goal as an artist is to be as busy as possible. He doesn’t want to be stagnant when it comes to projects.
Thus, in a recent interview, he was quizzed whether he had any issues with his former management.
The 32-year-old actor officially left ABS-CBN and Star Magic and transferred to Viva Artists Agency. Despite this development though, he points out that there’s no bad blood between him and his former home studio.
“I want to make it clear that I hold no grudge against ABS. It’s just that I was only given a rare opportunity by Viva. I believe in timing and this is it. I’m not getting any younger. At this point, I’m just so excited about all the possible projects that could land on my lap. To reiterate, I don’t have anything against my former mother studio. What I want is to just work and work,” he explained.
“It just so happened that I wasn’t given projects, especially during the pandemic and I understand how hard the situation was. There were lots of restrictions on shootings or tapings. So, I opted to move to someplace where there is work available,” he added.
At the height of the pandemic, when showbiz offers were scarce, Arron was busy attending to his businesses. And that’s what kept him busy while everybody was having some difficult moments.
“Perhaps, I’m not just used to doing nothing. With those struggles I faced, I just kept myself busy with other equally important things like I opened a new salon. I also have my real estate. I’m just thankful that we’re alive.”
With regards to the new phase in his acting career, the appealing actor avers that he is prepared to be daring in the projects he will do for Vivamax, like Wag Mong Agawin ang Akin.
“Yes, I am ready to go sexy on screen but still with limitations. For one, I can’t do frontal nudity. But sexy, it’s a hundred percent. When I signed up with Viva, I know that the projects would be intense, which makes it exciting,” ended Arron.
