Jake Cuenca talks about what it's like to work with Anne Curtis on 'Green Rose' and with Angel Locsin on 'Huling Sayaw.'
Aside from his love life, Jake Cuenca was happy to say that he'rsquo;s also blessed with lots of opportunities in his showbiz career. In a recent interview with Push.com.ph, the dashing actor shared that he has been busy shooting the film Huling Sayaw together with Aga Muhlach and Angel Locsin. "Oo four months na kami nagsyu-shoot. Love triangle kaming tatlo nila Angel and Aga. Pero my role there is a little offbeat. It'rsquo;s a very big opportunity for me to share the limelight with Angel and Aga kasi iniidolo ko siya. I think one of the reasons kaya nabuo yung team-up din is because Angel and I did an episode for Maalaala Mo Kaya early this year. So I am very grateful. To be part of this film and to be directed by Olive Lamasan is a very big deal for me," he began.
Jake has also started working with Anne Curtis and Jericho Rosales for the teleserye Green Rose. When told that Anne is all praises for him whenever local media ask her about their working relationship, he claimed that he feels privileged to be her leading man as well. "Wow, thank you Anne. I just do my best. Gusto ko galingan talaga kasi I'rsquo;m working with such an amazing actor and actress. Siyempre gusto ko rin makasabay 'lsquo;di ba? Never ko pa nakatrabaho si Anne so nakakatuwa kasi sobrang cowboy niya, sobrang bait, parang one of the boys. I was never really close to her in the past. Pero nung nakilala ko siya, iba talaga siya, sobrang wala siyang arte, hindi siya mabigat kasama at all."
Although he couldn'rsquo;t give details about his role in Green Rose yet, Jake revealed that he gets to be a businessman this time around. "It'rsquo;s a character role talaga. That'rsquo;s why nung prinesent sa akin yun, as an actor, I had to accept kasi challenging. Parang tinetest niya maturity ko sa career ko because I'rsquo;m being given a chance to create something very new. I did a sobrang bait na character sa Rubi tapos sa Tayong Dalawa matapang. But this time very subdued naman ang character ko. Hindi mo ako makikitang sumisigaw unlike before. There was no adjustment period between Anne and I. From the very beginning parang tumugma yung gusto naming gawin for our roles so sobrang saya and excited ako for this one," he related.
With all the good projects coming his way, Jake is out to prove that he'rsquo;s truly one of the certified dramatic actors of his generation. "Marami lang talaga akong oportunidad ngayon kaya gusto ko lang galingan sa lahat ng meron akong project. Kumbaga the real challenge is for me to prove what I can do. I want to make people more aware that I'rsquo;m a serious actor."
