Albie Casiño considers quitting showbiz.
Albie admitted he is torn between continuing his showbiz career and pursuing his education abroad.
In an interview, he acknowledged that he won’t be forever in the entertainment industry and that it’s just the practical thing to do if he would choose to continue his studies.
It’s also for his own future. He has not yet finished his studies . Everyday, young actors come and go and there’s lesser opportunities, he explained.
Casiño also pointed out that he is not a ‘showbiz person,’ citing his tendency to keep things private.
Nonetheless, Casiño said he loves the craft and he plans on finishing a course in relation to showbiz, so if ever he will stop and go to school, it will still be something connected to his work like screenwriting or cinematography, he said.
Despite his apprehensions, Casiño shared that his recent Gawad Tanglaw Best Actor award for his performance in ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ is something that makes him feel validated as an actor.
When asked if he is willing to do a project with Andi Eigenmann in the future?
‘Work is work, and he needs to put food on the table and stuff but he will rather not accept a project with Andi.’
Albie is not saying that it’s weird but he cannot not just pretend that there’s no history or whatever, he said.
Casiño was involved in a controversy with ex-girlfriend Andi.
She was reportedly almost five months pregnant on June 29, 2011 when she then revealed that the father of her child was her first boyfriend, Albie and he was one of the suspected father(s).
That time, Eigenmann’s present boyfriend, Jake Ejercito already denied that he is the father, while Albie’s mother neither confirmed or denied that Albie is the father of Andi’s child.
However, in an interview of Eigenmann’s father, Mark Gil, he did hint that the father of the child is Eigenmann’s first and only boyfriend.
He also said that Ejercito was not the father and he respected him for being there, even if he was not the father of the child.
Eventually, after a 5-year dispute, in September of 2016, it was finally confirmed by Eigenmanns’s sister in a podcast, that Ejercito, is the confirmed father, and that a paternity test or DNA was taken, without Casiño’s knowledge.
Albie became popular after starring in the hit remake of Mara Clara alongside Julia Montes, Kathryn Bernardo, and John Manalo.
He is known as one of the member of Kapamilya Cuties with their member; Diego Loyzaga,
