I had the chance to interview the two so-called dark horse in the competition - Mark Neuman and Shaira Mae. They're already part of the Tropang Kick-outs when they're given another chance to compete as a wild cards. Well, here they are, included in the Final six and they promise to give their best at the Awards Night.
Shaira answered, "Siguro po 'yung nakapunta kami ng Hongkong kasi first time ko po talaga 'yun, first time kong makarating sa ibang bansa. First time ko ring nagkapassport at dahil din sa Artista Academy 'yun, dahil sa TV5. 'Yun ang pinakamemorable sa akin at saka syempre 'yung friendship na nabuo sa amin, sa mga nakilala ko at naging kaclose ko."
"Artista Academy"’s Best Actor and Best Actress winners will bag a total of P20 Million in cash and prizes plus guaranteed lead roles in an upcoming TV5 teleserye. Not only will they be the richest of all talent search winners in the history of Philippine TV, they will also be the new breed of professional actors who are equipped with the proper training and attitude that will rightfully make them the industry’s future stars.
