As part of the first batch of Rise Artists Studio, Fil-British actor Anthony Jennings was one of the lucky new artists who have gotten the chance to act opposite some of the country’s best talents in acting opportunities like Hello Love, Goodbye, The House Arrest of Us, and Maalaala Mo Kaya. Anthony gets the biggest break of his career as one of the lead stars of the upcoming Star Cinema x Kumu movie called Love at First Stream with director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
“Sobrang excited ako nung una tapos nagulat din ako na si direk Cathy kasi akala ko din hindi na talaga si direk Cathy mag-wo-work din. Siyempre sobrang suwerte namin kasi kami yung mga bagong nakatrabaho ni direk Cathy na mga bata pa. And sobrang kinakabahan din ako kasi alam naman natin na nag-ta-top one yung movie niya. Pero mostly excited talaga ako,” he said.
During the cast announcement for Love at First Stream, the 18-year-old actor revealed how he first got discovered.
“Nag-wo-workshop muna ako sa sayaw tapos may naka-scout sa akin tapos nagpapa-VTR siya. Thankful naman ako na na-approve naman ako sa commercials. Tapos si mama Joy sa Star Magic nakita niya yung commercial ko tapos natawagan ako. Una, puro go-see ako. Go-see lang ng go-see. Dun ko na nakilala si Inang (Olivia Lamasan). Dun ko siya unang nakausap talaga ng malapitan tapos andito na ako ngayon,” he shared.
In Love At First Stream, Anthony plays the role of Christopher, a very simple guy with a charming personality who will work hard to help out his family. His love team partner in the film is his Make It With You co-star and fellow Rise Artists Studio talent Daniela Stranner. The film also stars Kaori Oinuma and Rhys Miguel. Love at First Stream is slated for release later this year.
