An artist in more ways than one, industry fresh face Kaloy Tingcungco is clearly at the top of his game. With his notable acting roles, it's only apt that his talent does not go unnoticed. From flying from one country to another as a flight crew to amassing online fame through BL series like Boy's Lock down and Blued's Meet Me Outside, Kaloy is more than ready to solidify his name in the entertainment industry.
If you're a new fan who's intent on following Kaloy's forward ascent into stardom, then it's only right that you get to know more about the man behind the screen. Here's what Kaloy has to say more about his acting journey as a newcomer, his acting role model, and all his favorites, too!
When did you start acting? what got you started?
The pandemic was the start of it all. After getting laid off from my last employer, doors opened for me and I started to take acting projects. I was introduced in a BL series last 2020 and from there, several acting opportunities came. Now I’m working with one of the largest tv network in the country and I couldn’t be more prouder of the turn out.
What do you like about acting the most?
Probably what I like most is that you get a chance to live someone else’s life for a time. Feel whatever they’re feeling and get to experience things you’ve never had before in real life. Fascinates me. It’s also a plus that I get to inspire and make people happy with what I do.
Who do you consider to be your acting role model whose career you would like to emulate, and why?
The first actor I thought of is RDJ. Robert Downey Jr. famously known as Tony Stark these days played the Iron Man role pretty well. I mean, he was successful embodying this multi-billionaire hero of the MCU universe which clearly makes him an outstanding actor but above all that, he’s still is RDJ who we all know is loved by many. He went through ups and a lot of downs during his early life yet he still managed to rise up and be one among the most influential people in the world. I mean, who wouldn’t want that?
What’s next for you?
That’s for people to watch out.
