The lure of show business can be deceiving. One moment, the projects can be overwhelming and the next, there might be none. This young discovery (YD) is now in a quandary as to what is happening to his career. YD is a product of a network’s search for talents to beef up its pool years ago. YD was one of those performers lucky enough to be given the break before the trend of reality shows. In other words, he did not have to enter any house to have his luck and popularity tested. He had talent and a pleasant attitude, and the bosses saw his potential.
YD got his break by acting with the popular young love team of the network. His boyish looks that compliments his cute smile landed him some tv commercial projects, out-of-town appearances, indie and mainstream movies, stage plays, etc. In fact, he even won in a dancing contest. However, the network did not build him up to be the lead actor. Instead, he was cast in supporting roles. However, that was enough because YD was able to provide a comfortable life for his family. It became too cozy that he bought a house and financed the education of his younger siblings. A family member even gave up his professional career to be the driver of YD.
Things were looking great until YD realized that his last soap already ended half a year ago and his group was no longer called to appear in a weekly show of the network. His lack of projects was jeopardizing the comfortable life of his family that they got used to. YD had to humble himself and "took the bitter pill." He went to the pad of a network executive (NE) and asked if he could be given a project. YD even said he was willing to do anything asked of him. Other pals of NE who were present at that time were surprised at YD's last statement. For it sounded really desperate. NE replied that he would call YD as he was still finalizing the line up of the next soap.
This story is ordinary for people in showbusiness. Unless one is extraordinarily talented or very well-connected connected, no one is indispensable. On the part of the network, its energies seem to be bent on developing the careers of their discoveries from their reality shows more than their homegrown talent search a few years ago. If YD can build a reliable fan base and sustain their interest, then there is no reason why he should not have as many projects. But for now, he might have to rethink his options to make sure he is not overlooked.
The latest is that YD is now part of two soaps, and was even featured in a magazine. On top of these, YD also decided to resume his education. Has YD finally learned his lesson? Did the visit to NE do the trick? People think that being responsible and diligent that he is, YD shouldn't be lacking in projects.
