Akihiro Blanco – ‘Artista Academy’ Profile
August 6, 2012 by cd
Get to know more about “Artista Academy” finalist Akihiro Blanco, dubbed as the “Astig na Heartthrob from Pasig.”
17 yrs. old
A certified school heartthrob who has had six girlfriends since he was 14 years old, Japanese-Filipino Akihiro Blanco is used to performing in front of people because he often sings at their family-owned resto-bar on his free days. Although he is confident with his singing and dancing talent, he admits that he is a bit apprehensive when it comes to acting. He promises to pay close attention to his advisers and instructors at the Artista Academy so that he would learn the ropes of acting and become a versatile and multi-talented performer someday.
Edge: He can sing. He can dance. He has the “Asian heartthrob” look working for him. Just like Vin, Akihiro is a triple threat. Plus he can always ask for advice from actor James Blanco who happens to be his relative.
Weakness: His “playboy” vibe and “kontrabida” look could be the two of his biggest obstacles in winning. He should not make the same mistake like PBB Teen Yves Flores in order to stay focused on the prize.
Odds of winning AA Best Actor: 15/1.
