“They said it’s hard to be an actor and it’s true. With all the waiting at tapings, it’s really tiring. But it’s fulfilling. I see how dedicated and professional actors are. I see how serious they are with their roles, on how they prepare,” Wryan said.

Wryan is determined to try all opportunities in the entertainment industry. “I want to try all. I want to act in movies like romantic movies or teleserye.” (Ay si kuya, hakot king!)

He is even open to doing daring scenes. “Doing a sexy film is not a problem with me. I have done many topless pictorials. “ (Palaban ha! Gawa tayo bro!)

But his dream role is to be in a family-oriented film. “ I can relate with family issues. Many people can also see themselves in movies about family conflicts. They say I’m fit for bad boy roles but I see myself as the one being maltreated. I want a drama. I can also crying scenes.” (Sige ako tagapunas mo bro… ng luha!)

He wants to follow in the footsteps of young actor Joshua Garcia. (Follow din kita where you go!)

“I saw how he developed as an actor. From being a teenager on TV to an actor. I hope I could do the same.” (Sige, ako Julia Barretto mo ha!)

The 22-year-old model exerts extra efforts to meet the expectations of his talent management team and producers. (Ano ba mae-e-expect ko sa’yo bro, if ever?)

“What is good with Viva is they require us to attend workshops. We are into basic, intermediate and advanced workshops. “ Wryan said.

Wryan is both celebrity endorser and influencer. He has been chosen by businessman Mannix Carancho to be one of his ambassadors for Prestige International Beauty products. (Ikaw na ang may beauty!)

“Some say girls are the only ones allowed to endorse a beauty product. It’s like, because I’m a man, I wouldn’t take care of myself? We should take good care of our skin, our body.”

The Centro Escolar University Tourism graduate encourages his fellow Chinoys to share their talents. ( Ano pwede nating i-share sa isa’t-isa bro?)

“I encourage them to join Mr. Chinatown. This is the only pageant that promotes the advocacies of Chinoys. It’s important to have the body and brain. Be sure you also have your purpose why you are joining. You should have your advocacy,” Wryan said. ( Bigyan mo din ako ng purpose in life, bro! Push!)
