From race track star to Kapamilya dramatic actor, Matteo Guidicelli recalls his childhood, how his parents helped him hone his talents and how parents could do the same for their children through Prom
He was first known from his racing career, having started at an early age of 11. This Filipino-Italian hunk got his first taste of fame when he won numerous awards including being a three-time winner of the Karter of the Year award. In 2010, Matteo Guidicelli got his first big break in the now defunct ABS-CBN primetime fantasy television series Agua Bendita
With a hit teleserye that just wrapped up, regular guestings at ASAP 18 and consistent workouts plus trainings, Matteo Guidicelli surely enjoys the perks of being a sought-after actor, a famous model and a competitive athlete but even with his hectic schedule he still finds time to bond with his family especially with his 5-year old brother, Gian Paolo.
“My brother is also into sports like me. And he likes to dance so I get him a lot of Justin Bieber” [Justin Bieber songs, Justin Bieber videos]. I bond with him by bringing him to my triathlon trainings plus I go with him in his swimming lessons. I motivate my brother because back then when I was young my parents used to do the same,” Matteo shared.
“Even though I liked risky sports like horseback riding, motocross, and go-kart, my parents always supported me in my competitions and training, and that gave me the motivation and confidence. Motocross used to worry my mom but she was still supportive,” Matteo said. "I got my flair for racing from my father’s side; they’re all into motocross," he added. “If it weren’t for them I wouldn’t be who I am today, I wouldn’t be as confident with what I can do and with all the things I want to try out.”
