Gerald Anderson refused to answer queries about the shouting incident involving him and former Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin
co-star Maricel Soriano. However, he reassured the entertainment media that he’s still focused on taping for his upcoming teleserye. “It's not the right time right now para sumagot sa mga isyu. Pero tuloy, tuloy [ang teleserye]
,” he said in an interview with TV Patrol
during the recent red-carpet premiere of Chinese Zodiac
Maricel allegedly flared up on the set of the said soap due to a misunderstanding with Gerald. The actor supposedly had difficulty delivering his lines, but Star Magic has since attested to his good working attitude and professionalism.
Janice de Belen, who also attended the Chinese Zodiac event, was quick to defend Gerald on the matter. The two previously worked together in the teleserye Budoy. “As far as how we worked together in the past, Gerald is very professional. Kahit ano pa sabihin ng iba, he’s really a good guy,” she maintained.
In the meantime, Gerald shared that he’s looking forward to working with Dawn who replaced Maricel in the said teleserye. “Sobrang [masaya]. We're very blessed na napasama siya sa cast namin. Hindi pa kami dirediretso kasi [pinaplantsa pa] 'yung script and everything but [we are taking it] day by day. Happy ako dahil may project ako at may bagong blessings.”
