Dingdong was simply an eye candy before – someone who stars in teenybopper TV shows and movies. He has been a loyal prince of this little kingdom called GMA Network, waiting for the right recognition one awaits in showbiz while he’s counterparts in the other station have expedited far enough on their own leagues. But he remained faithful to his mother network and after more than a decade in the industry, his hard work finally paid off. Dingdong is now one of the most bankable leading men of GMA, along with Richard Gutierrez and Dennis Trillo. He was the lead actor of several GMA fantaseryes (fantaserye, according to Wikipedia, is a genre of Philippine television which mixes soap opera, fantasy, myth, magic and enchantment) including Encantadia, Atlantika, MariMar and Dyesebel. Most recently, after his Hanford Underwear contract expired, Dingdong signed up and joined the big family of Bench Body.
