He advised aspiring actors, saying, “What I can tell the upcoming talents in our industry is to focus on getting to know the industry and what it takes to make one an actor of great caliber. Don’t chase after fame; it will rather chase you when you properly master the industry. Let us recognize that true success in the entertainment industry is built on a foundation of hard work, dedication, and a genuine passion for the craft.”
