Following in the footsteps of young superstar Daniel Padilla are his relatives Analain and Ashton Salvador, who are also related to the Salvador showbiz clan.

“Star Magic Plus” also introduced new teen heartthrobs Renshi Rueso and Raven Rigor who will be part of the highly anticipated teleserye, “Huwag Kang Mangamba.” 


Also joining the Star Magic family is young actress Danica Ontengco, whose acting credits include “La Vida Lena,” while viewers have to pay attention to the acting chops of teen star Angelica Lao who revealed that she always dreamed to be a star since she was a kid. 


Teen singer Angela Ken, who was discovered through her viral TikTok video, signed back-to-back contracts with Star Magic and Star Music. 


No less than ABS-CBN head of entertainment production and head of Star Magic Laurenti Dyogi welcomed the 13 new Star Magic artists into the fold, offering them a reminder on the responsibility they now have as role models to the youth.


“We want you to enjoy your youth and enjoy the industry, but be responsible to our audience,” Direk Lauren explained.
