Remember the former child star, Rhed Bustamante? Here’s her life now.
Celebrities can be compared to the twinkling stars in the blanket of the dark sky at night. Some are small some are bright, some are dim.
The path to fame is embedded with the uncertainty of staying in it.
This was probably one of the earliest lessons that the 12-year old Rhed Bustamante learned.
Her career, however, didn’t exactly take off as she recently shared her current situation.
You may remember her from television shows like ABS-CBN’s Flordeliza and GMA’s Endless Love.
She was also a part of movies such as Seklusyon, The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin, and Maria Leonora Teresa.
Through the drama series ‘Flor de Liza’, her popularity was boosted and she was tagged as one of the best child “bida-kontrabida”.
She received a special jury price during the Metro Manila Film Festival 2016.
Rhed Bustamante expected that her star in showbiz will continue to shine brighter.
“Akala ko po pag nag-artista ka, maraming mag-ooffer sa’yo pero hindi po pala ganun,” she said during her interview in ‘Rated K’.
Rhed said that she still wishes to be back in the limelight to help her family.
She revealed that they are looking for a new place to stay in as they are unable to pay for the rent.
“Mahirap po isipin kasi ganun po talaga ‘yung buhay po tapos minsan po di ko na rin po alam kung anong gagawin po para makatulong sa pamilya ko po”
During the interview, she expressed her interest in returning to the show business. Given the chance, Bustamante says that she will help her family with their expenses.
Since her interview, she was offered to guest star in Philippine TV series Ang Probinsyano. According to ABS-CBN News, her story caught the show’s lead actor – Coco Martin’s attention who has made it his mission to help struggling former actors by casting them in the show.
