Gerald Anderson is no longer bothered when romantically linked to his leading ladies


083011-gerald_main.jpgGerald 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 [sa ganung 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-prepare ako for a role, alam ko ang leading lady ko si Kim so naging mas madali ‘yung emotions namin,” 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.
