Dugong Buhay star Ejay Falcon admitted that there are times that he still feels awkward around his leading lady Yam Concepcion, especially when taping scenes that require sexual tension between them. “Maraming eksenang may sexual tension. Minsan nakakailang kasi kapag titigan ng malapit. Si Yam at Jed (Montero) ang gaganda ng mga ‘yan, pag tinitigan mo sa mata, naku! Tsaka kailangan totoo ipapakita mo,” he said during the press con of Dugong Buhay held last Monday, April 29.
While he’s usually attracted to morena girls, Ejay stressed that the possibility of developing romantic feelings for either Yam or Jed is far from his mind at the moment. As it is, he is determined to improve his acting skills and stay in shape for the sake of his current teleserye. “Hindi ko pa masasagot ‘yan kasi masyado pang maaga. Lahat naman posibleng mangyari. Pero sa ngayon alam kong baguhan lang silang artista, mas seryoso ako sa ginagawa ko, mas priority namin ang trabaho.”
Ejay mentioned though that there are a lot of beautiful girls back in his hometown in Mindoro. But he didn’t get the chance to get to know anyone in particular during his visit last Holy Week break because they usually shy away from him due to his celebrity status. “Meron [akong mga kababata na napansin kong biglang gumanda ngayon] pero hanggang dun lang yun. Parang ang hirap lapitan kasi alam ko na umiiwas sila. Naiilang sila. At saka siyempre nagtatrabaho ako dito. Hindi ko talaga priority sa ngayon.”
But should he decide to be on the lookout for a potential girlfriend, he wants to have the time to really get to know the person. “Mas gusto ko yung kilala ko na yung family background. Ayoko mag-invest ng feelings, mas makikilala ko tapos ‘di kami magkasundo. Mas maganda yung kinikilala mo ng mabuti.”
