Age surely is just a number, and the timeless appeal of actor Ian Veneracion proves so. He might be tagged as tito at times but there is no doubt that Ian can still pass as a heartthrob. He is even paired to women much younger than him like Bea Alonzo and Jodi Sta. Maria, who fans ship with him for real, despite being happily married.
Ian’s charisma to female fans and on-screen love team sometimes push his wife Pam Gallardo to hide on the sidelines. While there’s nothing to be insecure of, it is Pam’s decision to steer clear of possible bashing and intrigue. As how Ian shares, “Sinasabi niya na, ‘lalaitin lang naman ako.’ Kasi no matter what she does, ‘yung iba is rooting for me and Bea or me and Jodi.” Besides, Pam values her privacy and doesn’t have the time for online activities.
Ian met Pam when he was just 18 and they got married four years after. More than two decades since then, Ian and Pam remain strong and now blessed with three kids. The devoted family man would always tell in interviews that marrying at a young age was the best decision albeit he rarely shares details about their relationship.
The actor has dropped by the TWBA studio to promote his show A Love to Last. In the said series, Ian plays as Anton, successor of a big-time family business whose real passion is music. Bea takes on the role of Andeng, a family-oriented events coordinator. Both broken, Anton and Andeng are bound to cross each other’s paths.
