Squad Plus newcomer Raven Rigor never expected his life to totally change last year.

Na-discover lang ako last week of October tapos sinabi lang ng manager ko na may meeting ako with sir Deo (Endrinal) tapos nag-Zoom lang. Walang sinabi na project or para saan siya. Nagpakilala lang ako tapos sobra akong hiyang hiya nun. Sabi nung una wala ng slot dun sa parang project. Hindi rin ako nag-expect. After ilang hours, mag-zu-Zoom daw ulit. Tapos sabi magiging part daw ako ng Squad Plus. Sobrang nagulat ako kasi wala akong idea kung ano yung project. Nag-vi-VTR lang ako tapos hindi ko alam tungkol saan. After an hour sinabi na yung Squad Plus tapos nagulat ako sa members kasi mga nakikita ko lang sila sa TV and parang to be part of it sobra akong grateful,” he said during the Squad Plus mediacon.

With his first acting project in the teleserye Huwag Kang Mangamba, Raven admitted he was star struck by co-stars and Gold Squad members Francine Diaz, Andrea Brillantes, Kyle Echarri, and Seth Fedelin during the first few days of taping.

Mahiyain talaga ako especially nung first taping ng Huwag Kang Mangamba. Tapos si Francine talaga yung nag-try na kumausap sa akin. Tapos tinanong pa niya kung naglalaro ako ng COD (Call of Duty). Siya yung nag-initiate ng conversation and sa buong Gold Squad ang light ng atmosphere. Kung paano mo sila mapanuod sa mga vlog nila, ganun na ganun din sila in person kaya fan na fan ako noon pa lang kaya sobra akong natutuwa,” he recalled.

Working on the series has been an unforgettable experience for Raven who said he is open to portraying all kinds of roles but wants to focus on doing more on doing drama. 

Open ako sa lahat pero siguro sa drama talaga. Gusto kong ma-challenge. Overall sobrang memorable ng Huwag Kang Mangamba kasi hindi ko in-expect na maging part ako ng big inspiratoinal teleserye. Siguro yung makasama ko yung Gold Squad kasi sobra ko silang ina-admire talaga sa totoo lang. Dati pa nga nanunuod pa kami ng clips ng Kadenang Ginto. Yung sobrang maka-face-to-face ko sila na sobrang babait talaga, is a memorable experience,” he said.

Now that he has to balance his studies and showbiz, Raven said he is focusing on doing well in both fields. “Sobra kasi akong full time sa school. I’m in college studying Med Tech. Ngayon sobrang may pressure kasi sobra akong nag-fo-focus sa school ever since bata ako. As an actor, ang pinaka-goal ko is to improve my acting skills. Yun siguro yung dapat abangan ng mga tao. I have the humor din na I think magugustuhan ng mga tao,” he added.
