After making his Star Music debut last year with the single “Tama,” actor and singer Vance Larena marked another major milestone in his career this year after being officially welcomed into Star Magic. The 26-year-old artist admitted he initially wanted to become a Pinoy Big Brother housemate.

“Sobrang dream come true ito kasi ilang beses din ako nag-audition sa Star Magic. Ito lang yung pagkakataong natanggap ako. Nag-audition din ako sa PBB pero ilang beses akong hindi natanggap. Siguro dahil musmos pa lang ako nun at kailangan ko pagdaanan lahat ng pinagdaanan natin para matupad yung pangarap natin. Ngayon nandito na tayo ngayon kaya sobrang thankful ako kay direk Lauren (Dyogi) at sa lahat ng bumubuo ng Star Magic. Talagang matagal ko na gustong maging part ng Star Magic and ito binigyan na tayo ng pagkakataon at grinab na natin agad,” he said.

As one of the 40 new artists who recently joined Star Magic, Vance shared his career goals. “Ngayong Star Magic artist na ako, gusto ko lang talaga magtagal sa industriya. At makilala na hanggang sa pagtanda ko na patuloy na umaarte. Dream ko na gusto ko talaga magkaroon ng sitcom or comedy movie kasi napakahirap gawin. Napakahirap mag-elicit ng laughter and it takes a lot of skill talaga para magawa yun so gusto ko talaga ma-try siya sa susunod,” he said during the Star Magic Black Pen Media Con.

After being part of the primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, Vance is now working on the upcoming series Viral starring Jake Cuenca, Joshua Garcia, Charlie Dizon, and Dimples Romana. After his experience in Coco Martin’s long-running soap, Vance admitted he misses being on the set of the hit series.

“Ang saya ng set namin dun kasi pag break time namin dun may chance kami mag-boxing, mag-swimming. Pinapayagan kami kahit papaano. Sumusunod naman kami sa mga protocols at marami kaming physical activities dun kaya pumayat ako nun. So after na ng Ang Probinsyano ngayon medyo nag-gain weight tayo (laughs). Pero in terms of pag-reach sa maraming manunuod siyempre madaming mas nakakakilala sa atin dahil sa Ang Probinsyano kaya maraming salamat sa pagbibigay ng chance na maka-acting sa Ang Probinsyano kasama sila,” he said.
