Mark Neumann – ‘Artista Academy’ Profile
August 6, 2012 by cd
Get to know more about “Artista Academy” finalist Mark Neumann, dubbed as the “Class Comedian of Quezon City.”
17 yrs. old
This Filipino-Croatian Justin Bieber look-alike was born and raised in Germany, came to the Philippines when he was 12 years old, finished high school in Batangas, moved to England where he worked in a shampoo factory, returned to the Philippines and ended up pursuing a showbiz career via Artista Academy. He now lives in Quezon City with his uncle, who was the one who urged him to try getting into show business. In order for Mark to be fluent and comfortable with Tagalog, his uncle prohibits him from talking in English at home – a method that apparently works because Mark can speak Tagalog confidently with just a hint of accent which constant practice can eventually correct.
Edge: His boy-next-door look can get him a solid fan base comprised of teenage girls.
Weakness: Mark has yet to show any talent sor far so he must make his mark soon as some of the boys are already ahead of him in the race.
Odds of winning AA Best Actor: 30/100.
