Tonight with Boy Abunda welcomes actor Ian Veneracion, known for his role in the drama A Love to Last (2017) and the 2015 remake of Pangako Sa'Yo. On tonight’s episode, the actor-slash-singer sits on the TWBA hot seat to talk about his newest Cinema One Originals film, “Paglisan”; his love for extreme sports and how he handled the fake news surrounding his supposed death.
The King of Talk congratulates the actor for winning Best New Male Performing Artist at the recently concluded AWIT awards for the song “Refrain”, which he did for A Love to Last. Ian jokingly comments that he likes the sound of being named “New Male Performing Artist”, making him seem more youthful and at par with other up and coming artists in the industry.
On talks of his new film, he shares that it revolves around the subject of Alzheimer's disease. In a previous interview on TWBA, the actor pointed out that it’s one his fears—having to lose his memories. When asked about what he learned from doing the film, Ian expresses that he’s now more fearful of the disease; explaining how all his life, he makes it a point to make good and happy memories every day and to just lose that in the future is unimaginable and a horrifying thought. Ian also gives a glimpse into the making of the movie and admits that it’s his first time doing an animated musical-like film.
Ian shares he contributed a song for Paglisan’s soundtrack, entitled “Ikaw” and happily sang a few sample lines.
The actor is also known for his love for extreme sports and admits that it’s an activity his whole family enjoys. Not long ago, a news circulated social media regarding his death due to a motorcycle accident. Ian narrates the day he found out and how he was really surprised to see it, considering he was just riding his bike not long ago before he saw the news. On talks of death, Ian admits that he doesn’t really like talking about it, but if given the chance to choose how he would go, he tells Tito Boy that he would like to go as swiftly and as gently as possible.
