MANILA— Xian Lim’s participation as a performer and co-host of Willie Revillame in a mid-year TV special of a leading e-commerce online shopping platform Shopee on GMA-7 is the sign that the actor will eventually be a Kapuso artist, too. He was seen live on the TV special this Wednesday evening, July 7.
Xian will be the leading man of Jennylyn Mercado in the upcoming primetime series with a working title “Love. Die. Repeat.”
However, the Kapuso network has not introduced the actor yet since the taping for his supposedly first project for GMA-7 is about to start yet, too.
Just like John Lloyd Cruz, Xian first came out in a TV special of the online shopping platform which Willie endorses.
Xian sang his own version of “Pare Ko,” the hit song of Eraserheads during the ’90s, while he is playing the piano.
After his performance, he was joined by another former Kapamilya actress in hosting the TV special— Jessy Mendiola who rendered a dance number.
Jessy asked Xian on how does he feel now that he is with GMA-7.
The actor replied, “GMA, maraming-maraming salamat. Wil, mula bata pa lang ako, e, tagahanga na ako.
“Sa lahat ng Kapuso na nanonood ngayon, maraming-maraming salamat!”
Xian’s loyal fans were delighted because they were able to watch their idol in his new home and they were thrilled by the way the actor said the word “Kapuso.” (ECD/MTVN)
