- Xian Lim announced that he is no longer a talent of Star Magic
- He moved to Viva Artist Agency but asked to work exclusively in ABS-CBN
- The actor gave assurance to their KimXi fans that their tandem will remain
After nearly a decade of being a Star Magic talent, Xian Lim finally decided to part ways with his Kapamilya talent agency.
Xian now joins Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, James Reid and many others in Viva Artist Agency. During the actor’s contract signing, he was welcomed by Viva Entertainment’s executives including Veronique del Rosario and founder Vic del Rosario. He signed a 5-year contract that includes 10 movies and new music under Viva Records.
The 28-year-old actor shared that the reason for his transfer is pretty simple. He was quoted by ABS-CBN saying that he just wants to work and be known more by the public, “Para sa akin, gusto ko lang talaga magtrabaho and at the same time mas makilala pa ako ng mga tao.”
Xian added that he has no grudges or ill feelings towards the Kapamilya network, saying: “I will always be thankful and grateful sa lahat ng nabigay ng Star Magic. Ms. Mariole, Mr. M, [they’re] family. Family naman do’n, e.”
When asked if he is willing to work with GMA, “Gusto ko lang sabihin na I really love ABS-CBN. ABS-CBN has always been my home,” he answered.
Veronique del Rosario of Viva clarified his answer and said that Xian specifically asked to still work in ABS-CBN. As the other half of the KimXi loveteam, Xian assured their supporters that they will remain a ‘tandem.’ He said, “Definitely, hindi siya matatapos. The ‘KimXi’ tandem will always be there.”
Xian remains positive and hopeful, “This is going to be a very exciting year with a lot of movies coming up.”
