Newbie actor Jome Silayan n.k.a. Victor Silayan used to look like this when he was just starting out in show business three years ago.
I’m not really sure where the change took place but he is looking pretty good these days. He’s also one of the lead actors in the new TV5 drama-in-a-resort series Misibis [here shown with Vin Abrenica]
Who’s watching Misibis Bay? “TV5 will be launching its first ever sexy revenge drama miniseries Misibis Bay that will make prime time viewing hotter, more stirring, and heartrending this July.” That’s how the PR goes, and it got me with “heartrending.” Plus, of course, the three hunky brothers in the series – Jome Silayan n.k.a. Victor Silayan, Daniel Matsunaga, and Vin Abrenica, who are all wet and doing away with shirts for the entire duration of the show. I think.
Three years ago, Jome Silayan was being touted as the new it-boy in showbiz. That time Jome was a virtual unknown, a student modeling part-time. The first post on him generated some buzz, more on the who’s-that-interesting-boy queries. Fast forward a few years later and he snagged top media exposures, in Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine and Bench ads and billboards to name a few. He’s also a bit player on tv now. Although his fame didn’t reach greater heights, the 5’10”-tall hunk is here to stay in showbiz.
Two cute boys riding a scooter, sharing an Aviator. Bench Body newbies Jome Silayan [back] and Paulo Avelino heat it up as they shift and move up through the gears in their respective careers. Jome’s cast as one of the leading men in a GMA-7 prime time series while Paulo’s the male star of the production in an afternoon soap.
Didn’t you see him here first? That time Jome Silayan was a virtual unknown, a student modeling part-time. The first post on him generated some buzz, more on the who’s-that-interesting-boy queries. Fast forward a few years later and he’s got lots of top media exposures, in Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine and Bench ads and billboards to name a few. Now under the same manager handling Jake and Jon, he’s set to star in a prime time series on GMA-7 as one of the leading men. Not bad, eh?
The new kid on the Bench block is 20-year-old male model Jome Silayan. Now that his poster’s out, promoting the July underwear show of Bench, his street cred’s going up and up. People are asking about this guy, who’s really cute and sexy in more ways than one. I’m gushing, so just buy the tickets for Bench Uncut to see him in his undies. The tickets to the Araneta Coliseum shall be given after purchasing briefs in the 800-, 1000- and 2000-peso levels at any Bench store.
He’s “Manila’s Main Man” in Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine’s Steamy Studs of Summer. Twenty-year-old Jome Silayan is an Economics and Applied Corporate Management student at De La Salle University. He’s also an up-and-coming model in the metro. The 5’10”-tall cutie is into photography, painting and drawing, Jiujitsu and muay thai. The deadline for polling in the Cosmo contest is on 15 May 2010, so if you want Jome to be a Cosmo centerfold in September, you should vote for him. Lots!
