Joining the “Teen Clash” edition of the reality TV series “Pinoy Big Brother” became Ryan Bang’s ticket to stardom. He admitted in a recent interview that he himself never expected he would find himself in showbiz eight years later, after his stint inside the country’s most popular crib. Apart from being a mainstay of the noontime program “It’s Showtime,” he had also appeared in several films to further hone his comedic acting skills. Now, he’s been finally given a lead role in the horror-comedy flick, “Da One That Ghost Away,” with fellow Kapamilya stars Kim Chiu, Enzo Pineda, Maymay Entrata, and Edward Barber.
According to a report by PUSH, Ryan was quoted in saying:
“Nag-umpisa akong sidekick ni Papa P (Piolo Pascual) tapos sidekick ako ni Coco Martin tapos ngayon si idol Robin (Padilla). Hindi ko akalain ako yung magiging leading man. Siguro katulad din nung nangyari kay Empoy, may chance din ako. Nag-iipon ipon pa ako para ako ang mag-produce para maging bida. Pero ngayon natupad. Kaya binigay ko dito sa movie ang 150%.”
Ryan also shared that he just refused an offer from South Korea, his homeland, which was why his upcoming movie arrived at the perfect time.
“Overwhelmed talaga ako. Hindi ko akalain na ganito ang mangyari sa buhay ko. Pero kasi yung malaking offer sa akin ng Korea nung SBS hindi ko tinanggap, nagsisi ako konti eh. Pero hindi na ako nagsisi dahil eto pala yung mangyayari.”
He also added that he wouldn’t accept a role as a “regular host” of a “regular show.” He is willing to make guest appearances in Korea from time-to-time. The noontime show host added that being Kim’s opposite to the film was such an honor for him as well.
“Leading man pa ni Kim Chiu kaya sobrang masaya ako. Overwhelmed pa. Nung nakasama ko si Kim Chiu hindi na (ako nagsisi).”
