For everybody else watching Hannah Montana, it's refreshing to know that one of the co-stars of the series, Anna Maria De Tagle is half-Filipina, half-American. In fact, she is the granddaughter of one of the country's famous singer Sylvia La Torre. Being a Filipina in mind and spirit, this teen wonder reveals that she loves watching Kapamilya shows and is a TFC fan. In fact, she loves actors and actresses such as Piolo Pascual, Kristine Hermosa, Jon Avila, and Angel Locsin among others. Anna had auditioned for the remake of the film "Fame", which will be shown in theaters very soon.

Finally, it's nearly done. Piolo Pascual's and Angel Locsin's "Land Down Under" is on its last stages of shooting. In fact, this week was Piolo and Angel's last shooting days, if everything turn out well and a reshoot is not deemed necessary by the post production people.
This means that the film will possibly be shown in November as projected and not on February as rumored. The last part of the shooting was a rigorous one indeed. It is the main reason why Angel failed to show up on one of the scheduled fashion shows of Folded and Hung.
Piolo Pascual can be seen in a new TV commericial, Speed detergent, to add in his long list of endorsements. Piolo is even singing in this new clip, which is usually aired during the midday, particularly in Wowowee.
Piolo Pascual is wearing an all-white get-up, a long-sleeved polo and a pair of pants. actual pictures and clips will follow next.

Among the many names Dawn Zulueta mentioned when asked which actors and actresses she would like to work with in her showbiz comeback, Piolo Pascual's name was one of them. Dawn Zulueta had lain low on her acting career when she married and had a baby. But she regained her fame in the showbiz land just recently.
Piolo Pascual has two films coming up, the indie film "Manila" and "Land Down Under". Dawn Zulueta may just have to wait a little longer for the team up, if ever it would really happen.
It is rumored that Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin's top billed movie, Land Down Under had changed its play date and would rather be shown in February instead of in November. This is such a big disappointment to fans, who are clamoring for the Piolo - Angel team up for months now.
We just hope the rumors weren't true because that would be four months away. However, February is the projected showing month of John Lloyd and Sarah's second movie together. Hopefully, there rumors are just rumors...
