About the Show
Artista Academy sets the bar high for talent searches in Philippine television. With the intention of finding the country’s next biggest stars, TV5 joins forces with the Asian Academy of Television Arts, to provide the future stars intensive training in the various performing arts.
Hosts Cesar Montano and Marvin Agustin will follow Artista Academy’s 16 scholars as they tread the path to fame, fortune and stardom. Guiding them on their way are advisors Joel Lamangan, Louie Ocampo, and Georcelle Dapat, with the Academy's Executive Board Mac Alejandre and Wilma Galvante.
The glamorous artista life and an astounding 20 million pesos worth of prizes await the ultimate Best Actor and Best Actress, making Artista Academy the biggest reality artista search in the country.
A certified school heartthrob who has had six girlfriends since he was 14 years old, Japanese-Filipino Akihiro Blanco is used to performing in front of people because he often sings at their family-owned resto-bar on his free days. Although he is confident with his singing and dancing talent, he admits that he is a bit apprehensive when it comes to acting. He promises to pay close attention to his advisers and instructors at the Artista Academy so that he would learn the ropes of acting and become a versatile and multi-talented performer someday.
