knows how to sweep girls off their feet with just a glance and manly
performances. It’s one of the secrets why Victor Neri still remains
grounded and around after so many years in show business.
It doesn’t mean, however, that Victor spent all those months bumming around. Instead, he opted to enrich himself with new learning. For one, he finished his Literature course in UA&P, pursuing two of the things he loves doing: reading and writing. Moreover, he became a protégé of Direk Johnny, sitting beside him during shootings and tapings and studying every aspect of production and directing. Moreover, he continued playing his own music, tinkering on his guitars or beating the drums.
Soon after, he was back on TV, playing the villainous role of Lizardo in the boob tube adaptation of an epic movie entitled Panday. He may not have grabbed the leading title, but his presence and character performance definitely captured the attention and fantasies of both the old and the young. Later on, he switched to drama and channels as he was paired with Sunshine Dizon in Bakekang and Impostora. The chemistry between them truly clicked, even sparking rumors that they were indeed a couple. He was also given a chance to work with the Malaysian actress beauty-queen Carrie Lee in Muli. After all, Victor had just been separated from his girl friend, Michelle Madrigal .
What you see today is a renewed Victor. You may not see him in commercial films, but he’s everywhere when it comes to anything indie. He tries to immerse himself in every movie he does, resorting to making his own scripts, not hoping of gaining recognition but more of expressing himself more artistically and visually.
