Gerald Anderson says that he aims to work with as many actors as possible to hone his acting skills.
Gerald Anderson will be paired with Jessy Mendiola for the very first time in the upcoming teleserye, Budoy
. Gerald will play the title role, a mentally-challenged young man while Jessy will be his character’s love interest.
Since they are both single now, Gerald was asked if he plans to court Jessy. “Wala pa
stage],” he replied. The actor did not appear surprised when asked about the big possibility of him being romantically linked to his new leading lady. “’Yung kay
Jewel (Mische) nga antagal na namin
[nung huli kaming nagkatrabaho
] pero hanggang ngayon meron pa rin,
so by now sanay na ako. Siyempre dati isa lang ang
leading lady ko
(referring to Kim Chiu), ngayon nali-link na ako sa iba pero
normal [lang ‘yan
],” he explained.
The young actor related that it was hard for him at first when his team-up with former onscreen partner Kim Chiu had to be retired. “Four years po kaming magkasama
almost everyday sa
tapings. ‘Pag nagpi-
for a role, alam ko ang l
eading lady ko si
Kim so naging mas madali ‘yung
” he shared.
Gerald added that he and Kim may be partnered now with other actors, but he said that they will still be supporting each other no matter what. He also wants to have this chance to grow as an actor by collaborating with other artists. “Pero sa ngayon mas gusto ko pa ang nangyayari sa akin ngayon kasi mas
challenging. Ako ang magbibigay ng
support sa mga bagong
leading ladies. Sobrang iba
,” he said.
Asked if he prefers not to have a constant leading lady, he replied, “Ang sa akin ngayon siyempre gusto kong maging
versatile. Gusto ko iba-iba and kung isang tao lang lagi mo nakakatrabaho ano ‘yung
challenge, ano ‘yung ipapakita mo na iba?
He also stressed that the Kimerald (or Kim and Gerald) team-up will continue to live on because there is still a chance that they will be reunited. “Kimerald is a love team and will always be a love team. Gagawa pa rin kami ng
project siguro wala pong masama na magkaroon ng
love team. Sa ngayon nagfo
-focus po ako
on being a solo actor. Nagpo
-focus ‘yun po ang
main priority ko ngayon.
