Protégé: Andres Vasquez shines with Maricel Soriano and director Brillante Mendoza


It’s much too early to tell but if Metro Manila Protégé, Andres Vasquez play his cards right, he just might be Protégé’s first-ever male winner.

Andres was one of those few proteges who were awarded for their exemplary performance in last week’s acting exercise wherein all the proteges got the chance to act alongside the “Diamond Star” Ms.Maricel Soriano in five short films directed by Cannes Film Festival award-winning director Brillante Mendoza and written by Palanca awardee Floy Quintos.

The 21-year old protege from Metro Manila was awarded as Best Male Protege by Ms. Maricel Soriano and was also chosen byBrillante Mendoza to receive the Breakthrough Performance by an Actor Award.

A professional theater actor, Andres played up to his strengths by churning out an award-worthy performance and rose above obscurity leaving his still clueless  Protégé batchmates behind.

Apart from Andres, Elle Ramirez (Mega Manila) also received a special award for Best Female Protege and the Visayas Team for Best in Ensemble Acting.
