Gerald Anderson was truly flattered when told that Maricel Soriano is excited to start working with him in the teleserye Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin. Since they haven’t taped any episodes yet, all the Diamond Star can say for now is that she’s happy to have such a good-looking son in the story. To which the young actor replied, “Well, si Ms. Maricel ‘yan. Anything coming from her na maganda tungkol sa akin, sobrang nakakataba ng puso.”
The 23-year-old further shared that it’s a great opportunity for him to learn from a multi-awarded star like Maricel. “I feel blessed na kasama ako sa comeback project niya sa ABS-CBN. Excited ako kasi si Ms. Maricel ‘yan. Alam ko madami ako matutunan sa kanya. So, I’m really excited. Kung excited siya, doble yung sa akin.”
Apparently, the requirement for his role in this soap is a bit similar to the Hollywood action drama series Prison Break. “Yun ang peg namin. Sobrang action siya na may drama talaga. What attracted me is yung kwento talaga. Hindi lang yung drama, hindi lang yung action part,” said Gerald who maintained that Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin will definitely cater to the taste of Filipino viewers.
As for his upcoming film OTJ, Gerald said that he enjoyed doing the action scenes with co-star Piolo Pascual. Although the scenes were physically challenging, he was glad that the atmosphere on the set is really positive most of the time. “Kami nila Piolo magkasama kami dun. Sobrang exciting, grabe. Minsan dalaw kayo sa set. Naghahabulan kami, nagbabarilan kami. Pero ‘pag hindi take, para kaming mga bata lang na naglalaro. Masaya.”
