Known for his brilliance and versatility as an actor, not to mention multi-awarded, many of us were surely surprised when it was revealed that Christian Bables will be part of the upcoming Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 3.
But before we get to see him in a different light, let’s take a look back first on some of his remarkable on-screen appearances in this feature!
Probably unbeknownst to many, his first-ever project was the 2015 afternoon soap opera Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita. However, it was through his impeccable portrayal of Barbs Cordero in the 2016 indie film “Die Beautiful” that his acting prowess began to get noticed as it made him a 3-time Best Supporting Actor after receiving the sought-after accolade from the 42nd Metro Manila Film Festival, 40th Gawad Urian, and 35th FAP Luna Awards.
In his Magandang Buhay interview four years ago, he revealed that what made the role different from the past characters he played was having to not only prepare emotionally, but physically as well. Thus, his mom couldn’t be prouder of him.
2017 seemed to be a busy year for Christian as he appeared in Maalaala Mo Kaya “Salamin” and Star Cinema movies “Finally Found Someone” and “The Ghost Bride.”
The 28-year-old new breed actor then went on to land the role of Barry Bartolome, the supportive cousin of Lino (Jericho Rosales) who fell in love with gay lawyer best friend of Jacky (Yen Santos) in the controversial series Halik.
It was also in 2018 when he was hailed as the Best Leading Actor in the 5th Hanoi International Film Festival for his outstanding performance as Intoy Abakan in the indie flick “Signal Rock.”
He continued to amaze us with his impressive portrayal as Samuel Panti, one of the lead characters in the 2019 comedy film “The Panti Sisters.”
And prior to his Your Face Sounds Familiar stint, he seemed to give us a teaser of what we could expect from him in the said program as he attempted to mimic the singing voice of Vina Morales during his guesting in the Mas Testing segment of It’s Showtime. He also astounded us when he was able to guess who the celebrity singer was in his “Hide And Sing” gig recently.
