In July this year, Marco Gallo surprised his fans when he suddenly dropped his showbiz career here in the Philippines and flew back to Italy. The former “Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7” housemate decided to go back to his hometown to finish his studies.
Right before leaving the country, Marco posted a photo of himself at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) with his bags packed and ready to go. “Paalam Philippines,” he wrote on his post.
Before going back to Italy, Marco hinted on Instagram about his monumental decision. The 17-year-old Kapamilya star how grateful he was to have “Familia Blandina” as his last project in the country. He wrote on his post, “I’m glad that I accepted my last job (familia blandina) cuz if I didn’t I wouldn’t have met this beautiful too, it hurts me not seeing you for a long time, but that’s why they created phones right? Thanks FaceTime haha love you babygirl and littlebruh. Take care of your sister and ur mom ah!”
Moreover, Marco also used Instagram to give thanks to the people who helped him during his brief stint in Philippine show business. He posted his emotional message on his Instagram stories which read, “I don’t have words on how I feel about leaving you guys and not seeing you almost every day, but starting from now I’m not gonna be there [for] you guys magtatampo sa isa’t isa (when you sulk at each other), so stop being jealous of each other and just love and take care of yourselves, I guess I’ll see you soon.”
Furthermore, the teen star also answered his fans’ questions as to why he had to go all the way back to Europe in order to continue his education. He simply said, “If I stay in showbiz, I don’t have the time to study. If I go back, I have full-time job and study.”
However, it seems that Marco’s stint in local showbiz might not really be ending. On Twitter, entertainment writer Eric John Salut remarked how he missed the former PBB housemate whom he lovingly calls “anak.” Marco, on the other hand, replied to his showbiz mentor with,”I ‘ll see u in a few years (emoji).” Does this mean that he has plans of going back?
