After Ang Probinsyano stint that ended after five years, Lester Llansang is now working as a rider amid the pandemic.
ANG PROBINSYANO – PSInsp. Mark Vargas or Lester Llansang is now working as a Lalamove rider after he left the top-rating series.
Cardo Dalisay, a role portrayed by Coco Martin, is the lead character in Ang Probinsyano. One of the pilot actors of the series is Lester Llansang who plays PSInsp. Mark Vargas, an ally of Dalisay. His career in the series ended after several seasons of being a part of it. He has actually stayed in the series for five series.
Llansang was a child actor in the late 90s. He kicked off an acting career when he did Saranggola. He also appeared in Ang Galing-galing Mo, Babes. Being a part of Probinsyano has given him the chance to live comfortably and sufficiently. He can provide for his family, he can provide for his son, and he can buy almost anything he wants but after his stint and because of the pandemic, he realized one thing he never did – saving.
He forgot to save and when the pandemic happened, he lost it all. He was left with nothing and has to start off somewhere again because he is too ashamed to let his girlfriend work alone for the both of them. In an interview with Ogie Diaz, he shared that he is now a Lalamove rider, a job he is never shy to announce to many people.
He may not be earning as much as how he earns being an actor, the most important thing to him, for now, is that he has a job. He can help his partner and he is left doing nothing. Seeing the brighter side of his situation now, he realized that it’s better to have so little than nothing and let his girlfriend do all the work.
For his first day as a rider, he earned Php 480.00 and by what he is now experiencing as a rider, he started to appreciate all of their hard work because he now knows how tough their job is. Recalling, he went through depression and anxiety attacks before when he found himself with nothing.
