A grand winner of a reality talent search like his brother Aljur, Vin Abrenica certainly got what it takes to make it big in the entertainment industry.
His fine, dashing looks and well-sculpted body made him premiere matinee idol material, and as we discovered his acting craft through the years, he surely impressed everyone with his portrayals that were solid and intense. And these we specifically witnessed when he appeared on Kapamilya teleseryes since 2017.
When he started as a Kapamilya artist in 2015, Vin first appeared on various episodes of the drama anthologies Maalaala Mo Kaya and Ipaglaban Mo and likewise guested on ASAP.
But he made the biggest stride when he landed a lead role in the acclaimed primetime revenge drama Wildflower in 2017 that starred Maja Salvador as the iconic Ivy Aguas/Lily Cruz. He played Jepoy Madrigal, Ivy’s childhood friend who would conspire with her and work for the powerful Ardiente clan as Arnaldo (RK Bagatsing)’s bodyguard. He would henceforth help Ivy in plotting revenge against the Ardientes until the powerful clan’s eventual fall. Other stars in the drama included Tirso Cruz III, Aiko Melendez, Joseph Marco, Sunshine Cruz, Wendell Ramos, Zsa Zsa Padilla and Yen Santos.
A Soldier’s Heart (2020)
After Wildflower, Vin would further appear on more MMK and Ipaglaban Mo episodes, until it was announced late last year that he was cast in the military-themed drama A Soldier’s Heart opposite Gerald Anderson, Carlo Aquino, Jerome Ponce, Nash Aguas, Yves Flores and Elmo Magalona. He will portray Elmer Marasigan, one of the soldiers deployed in war-torn Mindanao and is characterized as a rival of Gerald’s character Alex. His other co-stars include Sue Ramirez, Matt Evans, Sid Lucero, Raymond Bagatsing, Irma Adlawan, Isay Alvarez, and Ariel Rivera.
Let’s all marvel at Vin’s continuing rise as a celebrated actor on A Soldier’s Heart, beginning January 20, Monday, on Primetime Bida.
