Regal Films proudly announced its latest batch of Regal Babies for 2016. Oozing with good looks and brimming with talent, these young artists and trendsetters from ALV Talent Circuit have already made headway in the local showbiz scene over the past years, garnering their own share of fans and social media followers at the same time.
Chanel Morales brought the house down with her a-capella rendition of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” on TV5’s reality talent show Artista Academy, making it to the finals round. She became a frequent romantic lead in TV5’s Wattpad Presents anthology.
The 20-year-old Scorpio describes herself as strong, creative and irreplaceable lives by her motto: “Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, hate, drama or negativity stop you from being the best person you can be.” She finished her college education at University of Sto. Tomas.
In a crowd of good-looking models, David Alexander Sy Licauco easily stands out. Keen and driven with passion to make it big in the industry, this Chinese Filipino model may just achieve his goal in no time. Already a fixture in various men’s fashion glossies, he is either flaunting the latest in men’s fashion, sharing his fitness regimen or simply enjoying his status as the evasive campus cutie that sends college girls forever swooning.
David has spread his wings since Mr. Chinatown 2014 in which he won first runner-up.
It was in Laboracay 2013, the much-awaited summer event when he was discovered. He was playing basketaball then with College of St. Benilde team.
An avid fan of Leonardo di Caprio and Daniel Padilla, the 6’1” athlete aspires to fulfill his dream of being recognized as a serious actor.
The social media influencer has been gaining a steady stream of followers, aptly called “Licauconatics,” who have been clamoring for showbiz debut.
Tall, young and lovely Danielle Lee has always wanted to become a star, but these desires were put on hold to finish her studies. She gets a steady flow of modeling stints and is always compared to her fabulous older sister Divine. She doesn’t mind really because she looks up to her. In her free time, she likes going to the beach, loves engaging in sports and helping out in feeding programs and charities that focus on educating the youth.
Being the svelte and leggy teenager, Danielle has been touted as a potential beauty queen, following in the footsteps of showbiz personalities-turned-world-class-beauties, like Megan Young and Pia Wurtzbach.
Jerico Ejercito could very well be the next action hero. He is the grandson of George Estregan and the son of actor and former Laguna governor Jeorge E.R. Estregan Ejercito. He has appeared in Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story and El Presidente. His chiseled physique he says is genetic and due to hard work in the gym and track.
A political science major at De La Salle University, Jerico aspires to be a track and field Olympian.
First exposed to the modeling world in his formative years, he has admittedly been bitten by the showbiz bug at an early age, perhaps in large part due to his showbiz lineage as well.
But despite that, Jerico acknowledges he can’t hold on to his family’s coattails.
With his natural inclination for sports and his lean but muscular build, he sees himself more fit for action movies, just like his favorite flicks Die Hard, Fast 5, and The Avengers.
Is his college course any indication of a political career in the near future?
He says, “I can’t tell yet. As of now, I prefer to do the things that I can do while I’m still young, because most probably someday, that time would come.”
With these latest additions to Regal Films’ roster of celebrity talents, Regal Films matriarch Mother Lily Monteverde is greatly excited about the company’s lineup of projects for the young stars.
She says, “Through the years, the Regal Babies have consistently turned out to be box-office superstars and this year is no exception. I see a bright future ahead for Chanel, David, Danielle and Jericho.”
Regal Films Executive Producer Roselle Monteverde lauds her good friend and renowned talent manager Arnold Vegafria’s penchant for building superstars.
She says, “We have always admired Arnold’s sharp eye for talent, and the impressive list of stars under his wing attests to his credibility as a star builder. As we share the same vision, we are looking forward to conceptualizing new and trendsetting projects aimed for today’s young generation of moviegoers.”
