Where do I even start? Singing has always been my passion but I’ve always been fascinated with acting as well; and now here it is! I got to be part of a film! . It started out as a simple text asking me if I wanted to do a screen test for the upcoming movie, ‘The Hows Of Us’ and of course I said yes right away! I learned so much from this experience. About professionalism and humility. . Thank you po kay Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina sa pagtiwala saakin. Di man ako naka pag workshop bago mag simula ng shooting, tinulungan niyo naman po ako and you motivated me to be the best I can be. It is a privilege to be part of one of your four last films. . Thank you to Ate Kath and Kuya DJ for being so approachable and for treating me like your little bro. I have always been a fan and I’d say this is any fanboy’s dream. . To all my co-actors na naka-eksena ko po, thank you for your patience and understanding and for all the tips as well. . To everyone on the set, to the crew and the staff of Star Cinema, maraming salamat po. Sa lahat po ng nagtratrabaho sa isang film set, I salute you. . I’m so happy. This is definitely a dream come true! #TheHowsOfUs showing na po! I play the role of George’s (Ate Kathryn) brother, Yohan! Sana po suportahan ninyo! #THOU . Photo: PUSH Alerts

Have you watched The Hows of Us? What did you think of Darren’s acting?
