Piolo Pascual might be wearing many different hats but being an actor is still his favorite.
During Sun Life Philippines’ recent event to launch its newest health campaign, the 46-year-old heartthrob shared that this year, fans will be hearing a lot about him and they will be seeing him not only on the television but also on the big screen and the theatre stage.
Recently, his production house, Spring Films, released the poster for Walang KaParis, which is a reunion project of Alessandra de Rossi, Empoy Marquez, and director Sigrid Andrea Bernardo. The project is a follow-up to the 2017 box-office hit Kita Kita.
As for his acting job, Piolo is currently doing another film and had just wrapped up My Amanda with Alessandra de Rossi. The eight-part series will be aired on Netflix.
Meanwhile, he will have a special participation in the movie GomBurZa as Pedro Pelaez which will hit the cinema in December.
For the first time, Piolo will also be taking the challenge of becoming a theatre actor as he becomes Crisostomo Ibarra.
On top of those projects, Papa P maintains the role of being the ‘walking billboard’ of Sun Life.
The seasoned actor has been the main ambassador of the insurance company for the past 15 years.
“They tapped me to become their first endorser. My sister (Chiqui Pascual-Gonzales) also became a financial advisor and my son (Iñigo Pascual) became an ambassador as well. It changed my life for the good. Every year, there’s always a new campaign and now, I’m a game show host,” shared Piolo.
He also emphasized the importance of preparing yourself financially now for you and your family’s future.
“You have to set aside a certain part of your income, not just for yourself but your family and your family’s future. And it’s really important for us to give extra care to ourselves, our needs, our well-being so as to be able to enjoy the fruits of our hard work,” he stated.
“Just give importance to life. Enjoy your life. When you can, with your loved ones, be practical about things – eating healthy, living right, having the right mindset, and giving importance to your mental health. Don’t splurge on things you don’t really need. Be wise with your earnings. Always set aside some things for yourself and your family for the future. So, these are the things that I live by,” added Piolo.
The actor is also more than happy now that Donny Pangilinan is now part of the Sun Life family. As the newest ambassador, the rising star encourages younger generations to give more attention to their health goals by having the right insurance.
“I’m really excited about what we’ll do with Donny, especially with our on-ground events. He is an ambassador. So that’s a good reminder to us not to think about waiting to get old to start planning for our future…I’m happy that he’s part of our family now,” said Piolo.
“Young Filipinos needing a role model in pursuing their health goals will surely relate to Donny, who has always been active in sports and outspoken in this advocacy,” Sun Life Chief Client Experience and Marketing Officer Carla Gonzalez-Chong added.
Both Kapamilya actors also invited Filipinos to join them at the Sun Life Cycle PH and the Wheel of Life Pop-up Fair.
Sun Life Cycle PH is happening on April 23 at the Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite. The event is open for all ages, fitness, and skill levels. To give younger participants the confidence to join, the Kids’ Bike Camp will also be held on April 16 at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila.
