With top-caliber actors as co-stars, Ejay Falcon said that he is pressured to do well in his next teleserye, Mundo Man Ay Magunaw. Aside from Empress, the rest of the cast includes Nikki Gil, Sylvia Sanchez, and Eula Valdesz.
“Medyo nakakakaba kasi nung workshop namin talagang ang bigat ng pinagawa sa amin at nakita namin kung gaano sila (co-stars) kagagaling na artista, so dapat mas dagdagan pa namin ‘yung kaalaman namin dahil dapat makipagsabayan kami sa kanila,” Ejay explained. “And siyempre andito kami nina Empress para pakiligin ‘yung mga audience.” The teleserye is the launching project of his team-up with Empress.
Portraying the role of Nico, the head of a fraternity, Ejay described his character as a tough guy but with a soft spot. “Tapos isa siyang mahirap na nangangarap sa buhay. Feeling ko naman medyo mature na ako dito sa Mundo Man ay Magunaw.”
Although this afternoon teleserye will launch Ejay and Empress as a love team, the two have teamed up before in the now defunct primetime teleserye Guns and Roses. “Sana talaga may mapatunayan kami sa tao kasi,” he said. He is confident that his onscreen partnership with Empress will be effective because they have established a friendship already. “Magkaibigan naman kami and magkatrabaho na rin kami sa Guns and Roses kaya kampante na kami sa isa’t-isa. Hindi na kami naiilang. Dati ako medyo nahihiya pero ngayon okay na, masarap katrabaho, walang tension.”
