Iñigo Pascual Had Second Thoughts on Entering Showbiz

  • August 27, 2017

Things were actually not promising all the time for Iñigo the showbiz royalty. The guy with so much charm, energy, and talent shared that he went through a bleak phase. “‘Di ko alam if I still wanted to go back. For the longest time, I kept declining acting offers.” The former love team partner of Sofia Andres, Julia Barretto, and Miles Ocampo reveals, “I felt like that was it for me because I felt like I wasn’t happy with my acting. I felt like I wasn’t receiving the feeling of achievement from myself.”

He took up BS Entrepreneurship in Enderun Colleges. Such move made others think that Iñigo was on his way out of showbiz. “I wanted to make myself better through my studies and also learn the Filipino culture kasi I felt na that was what I was lacking.” He admits that going to college was his Plan B.

He sought advice from his childhood idol Sam Concepcion on whether he should focus on his studies or on music. “Sabi niya, ‘You’re settling for Plan B. That’s what you’re doing. If you really wanna do what you love, you prioritize it. You don’t settle for Plan B because if you prioritize a Plan B, you’re technically bringing yourself to that direction.’”
