Gabby Concepcion reveals why he turned down the offer to do a new teleserye


After doing the teleserye Kung Tayo'rsquo;y Magkakalayo last year, Gabby Concepcion was recently asked to join the cast of a new series. However, Gabby said he is currently enjoying his life away from the limelight. "In-offer sa akin yung isang project. Hindi ko tinanggap kasi magco-concentrate muna ako sa pagpro-promote ng Sustagen for this year. Yun ang show ko muna, mga promo show for Sustagen. Hinihintay ko yung tamang project," he said during the Sustagen Premium presscon held last February 22 at 55 Events Place in Quezon City.

The former matinee idol said he is in no rush to get back onto television because he is still waiting for the right role. "I will take my time kasi pagpasok ng 2011, gusto ko maganda yung pagbalik ko sa audience para I would be different. Ayoko yung role na ginawa ko last time. Baka sabihin kasi pareho lang. Eh nung in-offer sa akin yun parang nahahawig dun sa huling ginawa ko. So gusto ko maiba naman. I will just wait for a more challenging role," he said.

Gabby said that declining the offer does not automatically mean he is thinking of transferring to a different network. "Wala namang magbabago. Kapamilya pa rin ako. Magaganda ang mga projects ng ABS-CBN pero I wanted a more challenging role so sabi ko hintayin na lang natin yung next project. Meron namang prinomise sa akin na project. Merong project para sa akin," he stressed.

In fact, the 46 year-old actor said he already has a very definite idea of what kind of role he would be interested in doing next. "Ang gusto ko kasi every time na meron akong binabasang script at merong role na gagawin para sa aking audience, gusto ko yung kakaiba. Kaya nung bumalik ako, hindi ko sila puwede bigyan ng kahit ano lang. yung tipong nagawa ko na or paulit-ulit. Kasi baka magsawa sila. Gusto ko yung pag napanuod nila ako, iba na naman ang role. Experimental ako or yung role na more challenging. Iba naman kasi kung pare-pareho parang nagiging corny, nagiging redundant or monotonous. Maganda yung may depth at may challenge ba," he explained.

Gabby shared one of his favorite projects in his movie career. "Matagal na last movie ko. Paborito ko yung Una Kang Naging Akin. That'rsquo;s with Dawn Zulueta. Shinoot namin sa Anilao, Batangas. Dun sa aking beach resort kaya gustong gusto yun. Tsaka gusto ko yun kasi nawalan ako ng malay dun eh, hindi ko alam kung sino ako. yun ang maganda. Wala ka sa sarili," he shared.

Gabby said he has always been receptive to doing a long-awaited reunion movie with ex-wife Sharon Cuneta. "Okay naman ako dun, maski nung araw pa eh. It'rsquo;s just a matter of time. Maganda yung light and medyo comedy ng konti yu
