A second chance in showbiz were granted to Mystica and Rhed Bustamante after making their primetime debut on Monday night, September 17, in Ang Probinsyano. In the latest episode of the hit soap, Mystica played the role of Rosa, a hot-tempered woman who became furious towards Ana, played by Rhed, and her younger sibling.
Before her TV comeback, Mystica once appealed to Coco Martin to be granted the chance to star in the show. “Matagal ko na po gustong lumapit, dahil alam ko pong matulungin si Coco Martin eh, kaso nahihiya po ako. Sana naman po ay bigyan ako ng pagkakataon, kasi yun na lang po ang natatanging kayamanan ko, ‘yung talent ko,” she said in an interview with PUSH and ABS-CBN News. The sexy actress was selling fried chicken as her source of income before she made her Ang Probinsyano debut.
Meanwhile, Rhed was also struggling to make ends meet. The young actress, who was once dubbed as one of the most talented child stars, was found selling food beside the railway in Sampaloc, Manila by the Sunday show Rated K. The young star shared with Rated K that when movie and television offers became scarce, her family decided to move into a smaller home. As she lost showbiz opportunities, Rhed chose to help her family by becoming a vendor. What shocked her fans even more was her revelation that she has a disease called incontinentia pigmenti.
In the same interview, Rhed expressed her desire to make a showbiz comeback so that she can help send her siblings to school. “Wish ko po may makatulong po sa amin para po sa pag-aaral po namin tatlong magkakapatid,” she stated.
Recently, Coco confirmed that Mystica and Rhed will be part of Ang Probinsyano. "Talagang itong mga taong ito may mga talent, kinakailangan lang mabigyan ng opportunity para makita sila at para magkaroon ulit ng laban at sigla ang buhay nila," Coco stated.
