Among women, it’s transitioning from wholesome, romantic roles to adult, sexy parts.
For the men, it’s going action.
Such is the case with Dingdong Dantes, who bravely embraces the action-drama genre with his new TV starrer, “Alyas Robin Hood”.
Beginning September19, the veteran actor can be seen in a new light as a nightly crime-busting sort of super hero with only a bow and arrow as his line of defense.
