Jewel Mische prays that her team-up with Gerald Anderson will also be supported by fans.
Jewel Mische is now gearing up for her debut as the new leading lady of Gerald Anderson in two TV projects, namely Bagwis and Buhawi Jack. The new Kapamilya actress knows that there are still violent reactions from fanatic supporters of Gerald and his original leading lady Kim Chiu about her tandem with the actor. "Sa totoo lang hinahangaan ko ang love team nina Kim at Gerald, 'lsquo;yung pagsuporta ng mga fans nila sa kanila. Sa tingin ko normal lang na may mga hindi magiging masaya kung paghihiwalayin sila."
But Jewel said she hopes that in time the fans will get to respect and support her as Gerald'rsquo;s new TV leading lady. "Sana eventually mawala 'lsquo;yung mga ganun at matanggap rin nila 'lsquo;yung tambalan namin ni Gerald. Malaking tulong na rin nila 'lsquo;yun sa akin dahil nagsisimula pa lang ako. I promise na ibibigay ko 'lsquo;yung best."
There have been past incidents when stars linked to either Kim and Gerald would receive hate mails and death threats from violent fans. Fortunately, Jewel confessed that she has yet to experience this and prays that there won'rsquo;t be any in the future. "Sa akin personally wala pa. Sana wala na kasi sobrang bait nina Kim at Gerald."
Another challenge for Jewel as a new ABS-CBN star is to prove that she has the talent comparable to that of other top-notch Kapamilya drama actresses. "Meron talagang pressure at kaba dahil nagsisimula pa lang ako. Pero dahil baguhan pa lang ako, I know na marami rin akong matututunan sa kanilang lahat dahil sila 'lsquo;yung mas established na."
But before Jewel'rsquo;s projects with Gerald hit the tube, she will first be seen in an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya opposite Baron Geisler. She talked about how she considers the MMK project a huge privilege. "Bata pa lang ako naalala ko nakakapanood na ako ng MMK. It feels great na bilang bagong Kapamilya ang magiging unang project ko ay isang episode ng MMK. I feel privileged to be doing this."
Jewel will play a young woman who tries to have a family with her gay best friend, played by Baron, whom she describes as a very talented actor. "Makakasama ko rito si Baron na sa pagkakakwento sa akin ay magaling talagang aktor, kahit anong role kayang niyang gawin. I was told siya talaga ang pinili for this role."
