Anthony Taberna interviews Xia Vigor, who has come a long way after winning a TV contest.


Aspiring child actor Dave Bagona shares how he tries to fulfill his dream in TNT.


Landing roles and getting screen time is a dream shared by hundreds of children whenever there is an open casting call. For some, it is a dream; for others, it could mean the opportunity to a better life.

This Friday (May 12), Anthony Taberna puts the spotlight on two child performers – Dave Bagona and Xia Vigor – as he discovers the challenges they face to reach for their dreams in “Tapatan ni Tunying” on ABS-CBN.

Six year-old Dave started attending workshops at age three to hone his talents. He continues to attend workshops while regularly auditioning for TV programs and commercials, awaiting his big break.

Seven-year-old Xia, meanwhile, was in a vacation with her family when she joined and eventually won “It’s Showtime’s Mini Me 2 Contest.” Now, she is one of the brightest child stars in the industry. After getting worldwide fame for her impersonation of Taylor Swift in “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids,” Xia also starred in the morning drama “Langit Lupa” on ABS-CBN.

Meet Dave and Xia and see how the support of parents, whether financially or emotionally, plays a big part in the realization of their dreams on “Tapatan ni Tunying” with Anthony Taberna, this Friday (May 12), Friday after Bandila on ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN HD and on DZMM Teleradyo at 9:30 p.m. You can also watch online via or For updates, follow @TNTunying on Facebook and Twitter.
