Fifth Solomon is now a certified film director, with a Metro Manila Film Festival entry at that.

He actually started his showbiz career as a reality show contestant.

Then he tried acting.

It didn’t work out out exactly the way he planned but Fifth is happy to finally found recognition as film director.

He told us: “Oo naman , of course. Kasi dati, I would hear a lot of things when I first started doing this like, ‘Bakit?’ ‘Kaya ba niya?’ Nasaktan din ako but I used it to motivate myself na lang, Ngayon, it feels good na somehow, I found recognition na din.”

Fifth writes his own films. Is he open to doing acting and directing?

He answered: “Hindi ko pa naisip yan pero yeah, open ako sa idea kasi gusto ko pa rin ang acting.”

Fifth is now setting his sights towards directing Bea Alonzo and Angelica Panganiban.

“Dahil magagaling sila,” he intoned.

Then there’s James Reid.


He shared: “Dahil crush ko siya dati pa.”
