Jason Abalos is ABS-CBNs newest superhero, Bianong Bulag


Jason Abalos was finally launched as Bianong Bulag in the latest installment of Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla. Aside from the fact that this is his first title role, the dashing 26 year-old was also ecstatic because his show is also part of ABS-CBN'rsquo;s daily afternoon block. "Ang galing nga kasi nasa Precious Hearts Romances: Alyna din ako so sabay-sabay. Actually, lahat naman ng trabaho tinatanggap ko. Pero yung magkaroon ng ganito kalaking opportunity, ang sarap sa pakiramdam. Kahit papa'rsquo;no nakaka-pressure din kasi siyempre mahigpit ang competition dun sa timeslot namin," he said in a recent interview with Push.com.ph.

When asked what makes Bianong Bulag different from the previous Agimat heroes, he shared that his superpower enables him to put time in slow motion and to be a sharpshooter as well. "Sabi ni direk ito yung pinakamaraming action na ginawa sa lahat ng Agimat. So nag-aral ako ng konting martial arts tsaka may ibang physical training din para handa ako sa fight scenes. Siguro para maiba lang kasi lahat naman ng ginagawa ko drama. Dito kasi nagdrama ako dalawa or tatlong beses lang, pambata talaga para lahat ng bata maka-relate."

Although he hasn'rsquo;t personally met the original Agimat superhero, Ramon Revilla Sr., Jason was happy to say that the former seems to approve of him playing the character of Bianong Bulag. "I think hinihintay lang yung schedule na kumpleto kaming mga gaganap sa second batch (Ejay Falcon, Enchong Dee, and Jolo Revilla) ng Agimat bago kami bumisita sa bahay nila sa Cavite. Pero si Senator Bong (Revilla) lagi ko nakakasama kasi meron kaming grupo sa basketball. Magka-team kami kasama sila Tito Ipe (Philip Salvador)."

In fact, Senator Bong and Philip may have had a hand in his becoming part of the newest batch of Agimat stars. "Nakita nila kasi ako, si Tito Ipe dun sa Tiagong Akyat, yung kay Gerald (Anderson). Sabi niya, 'lsquo;Ang galing mo dun'rsquo;. Sabi ko, 'lsquo;Oo, sana makakuha ako ng isa.'rsquo;.Siguro si Tito Ipe pinahaging kina Senator Bong [na gusto ko magkaroon ng sariling Agimat na show]. Siguro yun, may basbas naman. Basta masaya ako dahil madami akong naa-achieve sa career ko ngayon. Ipagpatuloy ko lang kung ano yung nasimulan ko para mapakita na deserving naman ako sa mga break na binibigay sa akin."
