JC De Vera on being a new Kapamilya: 'Dream come true ito'


073013-jc_main.jpgAfter formally being welcomed to the Kapamilya network during his contract-signing last July 29, Monday, JC De Vera admitted he had to deal with a lot of emotions. The 27-year-old actor signed a two-year contract with ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio, Cory Vidanes, and Lauren Dyogi. “I was nervous. Sobra akong kinakabahan. Lahat kasi very fast paced tapos kinabahan ako. Hindi ko alam kung ano yung naiisip ko talaga, lahat ito very overwhelming para sa akin. Sabi nga ni Ma’am Charo, ‘Bakit ang lamig ng kamay mo?’ sabi ko, ‘Kinakabahan po talaga ako eh (laughs). Dream come true ito. Alam naman ng lahat na hindi madaling makapasok dito sa network and lahat itong nangyari hindi ko ini-expect kaya ako sobrang saya and very grateful of course. Ang hirap i-explain eh,’ he admitted.

JC said his contract with his former network and manager expired last March so he wanted to explore new options when it comes to his career. “Nakausap ko si Leo Dominguez and nagtanong siya kung puwede ba niya ako i-handle. Sabi ko bakit hindi since bagong opportunity yun for me. Sabi nga nila, kailangan ko palaging mag-move forward and motivated naman ako na i-continue yung work ko ng maayos. Sabi niya dadalhin niya ako dito sa ABS-CBN. Very eager ako to learn and makatrabaho ko yung mga tao dito. Very eager ako na mapunta dito na isa na akong Kapamilya and sana matuwa yung mga tao na nandito ako and sana ipagdasal nila ako na magawa ko yung lahat na ipapagawa sa akin ng ABS-CBN. Masaya ako, very,” he said.

Unlike other talents who have had a hard time separating from their old management, JC said he has maintained good relations with his former manager. “Nagkakausap pa naman kami and maayos yung usapan namin. thankful naman ako na maayos lahat. Wala din naman kaming bad blood. Maayos yung pinagsamahan namin. Thankful ako sa lahat ng ginawa niya. Ganun talaga yung buhay, kailangan natin mag-move forward and kailangan natin mag-grow kaya nandito ako ngayon,” he shared.

One of the first projects lined up for JC is an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya which he is excited to start work on soon. JC said he hopes he can meet the expectations of the people in the network and the audience which will watch his shows. “Grabe yung expectations ko dito kasi very talented lahat dito. Ako gagawin ko lang talaga yung kaya kong gawin so ibig sabihin kahit saan ako dalhin, hindi ko masasabing kaya ko i-perfect lahat yan pero sure ako na gagawin ko lahat ng ibibigay sa akin sa ABS-CBN. So kung ipasok ako sa drama or sa action, mas gusto ko yun. Sa comedy, meron akong ginawa na comedy show sa kabilang network so more or less kahit papaano kaya ko siya. Mas gusto ko na andun ako sa gray area para masubukan din and malaking challenge yun para sa akin na gumawa ng iba kasi every show na ginagawa ko, kahit nung nasa kabila ako, iba-iba siya eh. Hindi ako na-si-stick sa isang role. So very excited ako. Isang reason din yun kung bakit na-excite akong pumunta dito kasi alam kong mapupunta ako sa kung saan mapapagod talaga ako. Up ako dun sa challenge na yun,” he explained.
