Now that he’s back on TV as part of the new Luv U cast, Nash Aguas is ecstatic but at the same time nervous about acting again. “Parang nong una excited kasi ang tagal ko ng hindi nagawa, ang tagal ko ng hindi nag-act. At the same time, kabado kasi kung marunong pa rin ba akong mag-act,” he said in an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph during the Kapamilya Caravan of ABS-CBN’s comedy shows in SM Skydome last Sunday, July 7.
But he realized later on that his acting has become better now that he’s aged. “So nong nandiyan na nong first taping, hindi naman nawala sa akin ang acting, mas lalo pang na-ano, kasi nagka-age na ako, matured na ako , mas naiintidihan ko na kung papano gagawin ang role ko.”
How was the transition from doing a kiddie show to a teen show? “Parang normal lang siya. Hindi ‘yung sobrang hassle kasi Goin’ Bulilit same-same ng Luv U. At siyempre nag iba lang ‘yung ways kasi high school ka na tsaka sa Goin’ Bulilit ‘yung roles namin don pang-matanda pa rin, kunwari mag-asawa pa rin, mag boyfriend, parang wala ring nag-iba halos, so para sa part na ‘yun hindi ako nahirapan,” he said.
Nash has one of the biggest fan bases now on social media and he trends on Twitter whenever he’s on TV. With such an overwhelming response from the public, some couldn’t help but compare him to Daniel Padilla. Did he just become Daniel’s biggest competition? “Hindi ko po siya gustong kalabanin or something kasi magkaibigan po kami,” he commented.
He said he appreciates the support that he’s receiving, but he clarifies that there is no need for competition. “Natutuwa po ako sa suporta pero parang hindi naman kompetisyon kasi si kuya Daniel 17 na siya, mas matanda siya sa akin, 14 pa lang ako, so di ko iniisip na parang ganon,” he remarked.
If given the opportunity, Nash wants to pursue romantic-comedy and drama in the near future. “Gusto ko po ma-try lahat pero more on sa drama siguro, drama or rom-com,” he said. Will he pursue music and release an album? “Sintunado po ako lagi eh, dancing po siguro, pero sa music mahaba-habang music lesson po ‘yun kasi di po ako gaano kumakanta,” he humbly stated.
