Eduard Bañez gets to live his dream under international talent management
Former ABS-CBN artist and Nickelodeon star Eduard Bañez’s paradigm shift is not only manifesting but happening for real. A major change in how people think and get things done is the simplest definition of this actuality.
In the case of the first-rate young master, his career goes through an exciting metamorphosis now that he is under the careful guidance of Paradigm Talent Agency.
Paradigm Talent Agency is an American full-service entertainment agency with offices in Los Angeles, New York, London, Chicago, Toronto, Monterey, Nashville, Berkeley, and Austin. It has more than 200 agents representing clients in television, music performances, motion picture, theatre, book publishing, digital, commercial/voiceover, content finance, media rights, brand partnerships, and more. Some of its most exclusive clients are author Stephen King, actors Sydney Sweeney, Antonio Banderas, and Brian Cox, directors James Wan and Malcolm D. Lee, and musicians Coldplay, Tiffany Young, Billie Eilish, Halsey, and Ed Sheeran. Sam Gores is its Chairman and CEO.
“To say that I am ecstatic to be represented by one of the biggest and most powerful agencies, which is Paradigm, feels great. I am immensely grateful for their trust in my capabilities as a talent,” Bañez opens up about this latest career upgrade.
“Under Paradigm, I have been informed that I get representation and other sponsorships. It thrills me that I am also included in what they describe as metaverse space representation which happens to be a first of its kind,” the rising star carries on:
Now that the Filipino star has Paradigm to manage his career, what Bañez is most gung ho about is “the massive boost in my artistic endeavor.”
“I am in the entertainment industry because I am passionate about sharing my talent. I want to inspire all the dreamers out there that with talent, determination, and passion, great things become a reality,” he says.
“It is not every day that a Filipino artist gets to be living his dream. I am not here for the fame or glamour part. I am here to showcase and highlight the world-class talent of a Filipino. The time is right and ripe now,” he adds.
Eduard is tickled pink with the fact that Paradigm’s major mantra is: “Our artists are by far the best.” He eagerly anticipates the fresh branding and grooming, the training and workshops to further hone his abilities, and the projects that are coming his way.
Speaking of projects, can he already share some of them? Bañez’s quick reply via our interview: “I do not want to preempt anything. What I can assure you is that they are taking good care of me, they not only welcome me but make me feel like family. The present thrills me, enjoying and cherishing every minute of all the sessions, and training. The future is bright. And in the proper time, it will be made public.”
Bañez ultimately wants to embrace the opportunities available for Filipino artists fully.
“We have the best actors, singers, dancers, and all sorts of performing artists. We have the likes of Lea Salonga and the rest of the great musical theater actors. Dolly de Leon’s recognition and the history she carves are well deserved. There is so much that Filipinos can offer because we have the passion and heart for it. I am just happy to be in a team where my passion and heart will be maximized.”
Bañez plans to visit Manila soon. He misses his friends and all the people he considers dear.
