Although known as a singer, Jed Madela says trying out acting is just a matter of time.
Among the male Champions singers, Jed Madela is the only one who has yet to venture into acting. Mark Bautista has done TV and movie projects and Christian Bautista will soon star in his first major TV acting project with Malaysian actress Carmen Soo for a presentation of Your Song Presents.
But at the launching of his latest album, Jed said that he is now open to the idea of trying out acting but only for the right project. In his interview, the belter revealed the possibility of appearing in the current musical teleserye Idol that stars fellow champion Sarah Geronimo. Jed explained that the program is a perfect avenue to try out acting while doing some singing.
He also said that he has no feeling of being left behind by his contemporaries. "Mapi-feel ko lang 'lsquo;yon kapag nakaupo ako sa bahay at wala akong ginagawa," he explained. "But now I rarely stay at home marami naman akong work, I have a lot concerts in line abroad. I'rsquo;m coming up with concert sa Australia in September, Canada in October and in the US in December.
"'rsquo;Yung acting it will come. I know may darating talaga na offer na role," he said confidently.
Asked what kind of projects he would like to do, Jed replied, "Dati ko pa sinasabi sa mga friends ko na director, like sina Direk Joey (Reyes), sabi ko, 'lsquo;Direk, 'lsquo;pag gumawa ka ng horror movie, isama n'rsquo;yo ako.'rsquo; Parang hindi sila seryoso, akala nila nag-jo-joke ako. I'rsquo;m a big horror fan."
