Sam Milby as Villain "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala"

Sam Milby has came long long way from "Big Brothers" to singing and acting. This half Filipino-American actor is very famous for guy next door type acting and he is a lead actor in most of his films. Lately I was surprised that he into villain role too. By the way he is very good in it and very convincing.

Here is the complete article about him taken from ABS-CBN:

MANILA -- Sam Milby is happy to know that he has earned some "haters" because of his character in "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala."

In the ABS-CBN drama series, the 29-year-old heartthrob actor portrays Eros, whose hope of reuniting with his wife and their child becomes an obsessive and potentially fatal hunt.

The character is the first-ever "kontrabida" role of Milby, who was handpicked by lead star Judy Ann Santos for her comeback project.

Over the course of "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" since its Primetime Bida debut in June, Milby's character has evolved from a sweet-talking and aggressive suitor to Anessa (Santos) to her ruthless and physically abusive husband.
At the sidelines of his photo shoot for a fitness magazine on Thursday, Milby said he is thrilled with the response of the audience on his portrayal in the soap.

"I'm really excited and happy about 'Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,' na 'yung reaction ng mga tao... maraming naiinis," he said, bringing up reactions on the popular micro-blogging site Twitter.

"Maganda kasi 'yung sa mga tweets, laging, 'Nakakainis talaga 'yung character ni Eros,' na, 'Sobrang bad siya.' Pero laging may kasamang, 'You're doing such a good job at portraying Eros, keep it up!' Laging may positive note," he said.
Admittedly anxious about playing a "kontrabida" at first, Milby said he feels relieved to get favorable feedback on his take on Eros.

"That's encouraging para sa akin. It's something na I've been working harder for, para sa role na 'to. Syempre it's soemthing different na hindi ko pa nagagawa.

"Having that acknowledgement, seeing 'yung effort ko, improvement sa acting at lahat-lahat, it's encouraging. And ako, I'm sobrang happy for all the feedback I've been getting," he said.

Fast-paced story
For what is seen as his most well-received TV portrayal to date, Milby expressed gratitude to Santos for personally choosing him to take on the role, and his directors for guiding him.

"Ako, I owe everything to Juday (Santos). Sa sobrang galing ni Juday, I'm really learning a lot from her and feeding off of her energy din. Pati sina direk, I've been asking them, 'Paano ko aatikihin 'tong eksenang to?' They've all been helping me," he said.

The series is directed by Malu Sevilla, Jerry Lopez Sineneng, and Tots Mariscal IV.

Milby is also particularly happy with the performance of "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" in terms of its nationwide ratings.

Based on data from multi-national market research group Kantar Media, the drama series has consistently ruled its timeslot in both urban and rural households.

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes, representing 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population.

Crediting the fast-paced story-telling of "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala," Milby said he isn't surprised with the series' nationwide ratings.

"It's because of the story. the story is sobrang suspenseful eh, ang ganda ng story, you don't know kung ano mangyayari," he said.

At the current point in the story aired so far, Milby said his character "[will have to be] the bad guy right now."
"Pero sana maintindihan ng mga tao na, wala, sobrang love niya si Anessa at ayaw niyang mawala si Anessa at 'yung anak niya sa buhay niya, so he'll do anything and everything to keep his wife," he added.

Airing weeknights after "Muling Buksan ang Puso," "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" also stars KC Concepcion, John Estrada, Coney Reyes, Tirso Cruz III, Mylene Dizon, Susan Africa, Empress Schuck and Joseph Marco. is the news website of ABS-CBN Corp.

Enrique Gil Is Sexiest Man in Philippines according to Survey in 2013

Enrique Gil is the sexiest man in the Philippines this year 2013 according to survey. He garnered a total of 39,746 votes. He was followed by Xian Lim with 22, 091. Well this is not accurate as this survey is based on popularity. I could not believe that many well proportioned models with good looks were trounced by this guy. Fans are the responsible of this funny result. I know that Enrique is a good actor but really the result is not credible.

Here is the complete article about Enrique Gil:

Robert Downey Jr, Highest Paid Actor in 2013

Robert Downey Jr. is one of my favorite actors in Hollywood. I like him in "Chances are". He was nominated in the film "Chaplin" for best actor category in Oscar Academy. He was jailed for drug addiction and later back in acting again. You can't put down a good actor. He was able to regain his popularity by playing different characters. Right now he is the highest paid actor. 

Here is the news from about this article:

Robert Downey Jr. is a hit machine. He’s starred in six movies that have each grossed over $500 million at the box office worldwide. Two of those films, The Avengers and Iron Man 3, each earned over $1 billion. Every studio in town would love to cast him, and now they’ll pay big buck for the privilege. Downey tops our list of Hollywood’s Highest-Paid Actors with an estimated $75 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.
Robert Downey Jr.

It’s hard to remember that just a few years ago, Downey was box office poison, and regarded by the studios as damaged goods. The promising young actor burst onto the scene in the late ’80s with movies like The Pick-Up Artist andLess Than Zero. But drugs quickly dragged him down until he became all but un-insurable. Directors like Robert Altman and Oliver Stone gave him work but for the most part, his career seemed to be a lost cause.

Downey turned that around with Iron Man. The first film in the franchise earned $585 million at the global box office. Overall the franchise has brought in $2.4 billion.
And then there’s The Avengers. The 2012 movie is the third highest-grossing of all time with $1.5 billion at the box office. While the film was nominally an ensemble piece, there was no doubt about who was the real star of the show. As Tony Stark, Downey mixes arrogance, humor and a hint of vulnerability to create a modern-day superhero everyone loves. While it’s probably possible to replace Chris Evans as Captain America, no one else could possibly play Tony Stark.
So Downey was able to secure a nice chunk of the film’s profits for himself. He earned more than anyone else on the movie, including director Joss Whedon. And he’ll get a huge upfront payday once the sequel starts filming in February.
To compile our list, we talked to agents, producers, managers and other people in-the-know to estimate earnings for each star between June 2012 and June 2013. We don’t deduct for taxes, agent fees or any of the other costs of being a celebrity.
While Downey tops this list, he only ranked 20th on our Celebrity 100 list, which is based on earnings and fame. Here we’re only looking at income. Downey ranked behind actor Hugh Jackman on the Celeb 100 because the Australian actor had a much higher social media ratings than Downey. Jackman boasts 2.7 million Twitter followers. Downey avoids social media, even though it would  give him the opportunity to connect directly with the fans who are really his customers.
Jackman ranks third on our Highest-Paid Actors list with an estimated $55 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013. A lot of that money comes from his work as Wolverine in the X-Menfilms. Yet another X-Men movie (the sixth) hits theaters later this month. It’s the second film to exclusively feature Jackman’s Wolverine.
But the actor, who has also appeared on Broadway, showed that he’s more than just an action star this year with Les Miserables. The film was nominated for eight Oscars, including one for Jackman who starred as Jean Valjean. It also made money. Les Miz brought in $438 million on a $61 million budget.
Ranking second on our list between Downey and Jackman is Channing Tatumwith an estimated $60 million in earnings. Tatum is often touted for his looks and his dance skills but he’s also a super smart businessman. He and director Steven Soderbergh self-financed the movie Magic Mike, which meant they didn’t have to get notes from any studio bigwigs and they didn’t have to share any of the film’s sizable profits. The $7 million movie brought in $167 million at the global box office and is a growing business. A Broadway show is in the works as well as a line of bars and a sequel.
Mark Wahlberg ranks fourth with $52 million. His 2012 film Ted was the biggest surprise hit of the year. Directed by fellow Celebrity 100 member Seth MacFarlane, the film cost $50 million to make and earned $550 million at the global box office. That massive profit helped boost his earnings from $27 million last year.
Rounding out the top five is Dwayne Johnson. The former wrestler is now a bona fide movie star who had a film in the top 10 for 10 weeks in a row. His latest, Fast & Furious 6, earned $695 million on a budget of $160 million. We estimate The Rock earned $46 million between June 2012 and June 2013.
