He is ABS-CBN’s new big star and no one else comes close! Gerald Anderson
is undeniably one of the most popular young actors today. The success of his prime-time show Tayong Dalawa
has catapulted his star to high heavens. Plus, his presence is felt in the numerous advertisements he is endorsing – from clothes to health drink and food to silver bracelets. With his new-found fame, this charming 20-year-old lad from General Santos City is poised to take reins over at ABS-CBN and become its important leading man of his generation.
I just found these photos in my files and I thought I’d put them together, side by side. I’m not going to ask who’s hotter or yummier or sexier because they are both adorable. And, besides, there’s no real comparison, really – Gerald Anderson
] is only 19 years old and relatively new in showbiz while Richard Gutierrez
, who’s turning 25 early next year, has been in the business since he was a fat little kid. They are both popular, from warring networks but local brand Bench got them together as models and of course, coaxed into going shirtless in its shows and campaigns. And, who knows, they might just do the bikini briefs for the Bench ads soon.
ABS-CBN’s heir apparent and resident cutie Gerald Anderson
gets his first acting break as an adult in a new prime time series called Tayong Dalawa
. He’ll pit good looks and serious acting skills with another studio favorite, Jake Cuenca
. For the series, Gerald had to shave [his face] to do the clean-cut look of an Air Force officer. The son of a Navy man in real life, Gerald says he draws inspiration for the role from his father.
Let’s do the choices thing again. If you were to select your boy for the rest of your Boracay Island stay [3 days, 2 nights, economy fan room but with free breakfast], and the options are – Enchong Dee
and Gerald Anderson
, who would it be and why? Now, this is a tough one, if you ask me. I prefer the Filipino-Chinese kid. And the Filipino-American cutie, too. I can’t seem to make an absolute choice. Who is your bet?
Yes, I know I just posted some photos barely a week ago. But then again, these pictures of Gerald Anderson
are hard to pass up. So, pretty please, with sugar on top, can I tease and torment you again with these photos? These were taken in a Boracay resort, with a wet, wet Gerald
confidently showing off his young and developing bod. Happy Friday!
I know you just can’t get enough of Gerald Anderson
, that refreshingly cute kid down by the ABS-CBN backlot. Reader macky79
sends in these candid photos of the boy, shirtless – of course, from the shoot for StarStudio magazine’s top 12 “most sizzling boys under 23.” The photos are proof positive that the published image of Gerald was not digitally manipulated. He’s beginning to bulk up his body and buckle down to serious mode, most probably in preparation for more intense and weighty roles as an adult. Gerald is really poised to take over as the top guy in his home studio soon.
Oh my. Comments page, I think, under the previous entry
on ABS-CBN’s next big star, Gerald Anderson
, is full. So I’m putting one up here – featuring candid and most recent photos of the young actor in the beach. Shirtless and shooting a tv series. And proving to one and all that that
StarStudio magazine photo was not photoshopped for the most part. Gerald Anderson’s star turn is up around the corner and nothing [and no one] is going to get in the way. The boy is really turning out to be a fine young man!
This might just have to be Twink Week! For the next post, here’s 19-year-old Gerald Anderson, resident cutie and top teen draw at ABS-CBN. I’m not so sure but I’m thinking he is being groomed to be the next big leading man in his studio, this early. He has not been vacant with work, as a weekly tv show has already been scheduled for showing in the coming month, with his perennial showbiz love team in tow. And the shirtless photos released most recently rather signal his transition from the teenybopper image to a more serious [and sexy] figure. I’m not complaining.
