Rayver Cruz says he's ready to be a leading man


Rayver Cruz wowed the audience at the Star Magic World Tour Concert at the Big Dome last November 13 with his dancing prowess. The young star revealed that his performance that night was inspired his recently deceased father. “Sobrang sulit yung pinagpaguran naming production numbers kasi naappreciate ng tao yung nagawa namin. Gusto ko lang magpasalamat talaga sa lahat ng sumuporta sa concert. Enjoy ako magperform nun kasi alam kong si papa nanonood siya. Para sa kanya yun,” he said in an interview with ABS-CBN.com.

Rayver will soon take on a more mature role as he co-stars with Roxanne Guinoo and Sid Lucero in Mahal Na Mahal Kita. “Siyempre sobrang natuwa ako nung nalaman ko yun. From May Bukas Pa na pambata, ngayon mature role na yung gagampanan ko for the first time. Excited na akong magsimula kaming mag-taping kasi story pa lang maganda na plus makakasama pa namin si Direk Chito (Roño) na nagdirek din noon sa amin nila Maja (Salvador) sa Spirits,” he shared.

Rayver claimed that he’s ready to compete with the likes of Gerald Anderson and Enchong Dee who are currently the most sought after leading men of their generation. “Oo naman. Actually kapag napapanood ko sila gusto ko na ring masubukan [kung anong feeling na maging leading man]. So paghahandaan ko talaga ito ng mabuti. Siguro ang magagawa ko sa ngayon aralin yung role, magwork out kahit papano, baguhin yung look ko pati yung buhok. At siyempre magtanong ng tips sa mga tinitingala nating aktor tulad nila Piolo (Pascual), sila Kuya Diet (Diether Ocampo). Para pagsabak sa aktingan hindi naman tayo mapapahiya,” he stated.
