Enchong Dee reacts to being dubbed 'John Lloyd Cruz-in-the-making'


092113-Enchong_Main.jpgAs his Primetime Bida series Muling Buksan ang Puso nears its finale on October 4, Enchong Dee admitted that there will always be pressure whenever he is doing a teleserye. “Mabigat yung pressure na galing ka sa isang hit show kasi hindi mo maiiwasan na ma-compare ka coming from a high ratings show. Ang hirap. So kung ano man yung nabigay sa amin na responsibilidad, binibigay na lang namin lahat kung ano kaya naming ibigay kasi ang laki nung responsibilidad eh,” he admitted.

Enchong said the experience of being able to work with veteran actors like Susan Roces, Pilar Pilapil, and Dante Rivero was a good learning experience for him. He learned a lot especially from Susan. “I was really, really excited to be working with Tita Susan because siya na lang yung hindi ko nakakatrabaho sa kanilang lahat. Tuwang-tuwa ako pag naririnig ko yung mga kuwento nung panahon niya kung paano ang artista tapos nasasabi niya kung ano yung mga nagagawa nila noon na hindi na ginagawa ngayon ng mga artista, nakakauwang pakinggan. So now I'm hoping na sana ma-imbibe ko yung mga lessons na tinuturo niya sa sa amin,” he said.

After being part of successful Kapamilya projects like Ina, Kapatid, Anak and movies like Four Sisters and a Wedding and Tuhog, Enchong said it's been a very busy year for him so far but he does not consider himself one of the favorites of management. “Unang una sa lahat, hindi sinasadya yung pagka-sunod sunod nung mga pangyayari. Supposedly mauuna yung Tuhog kesa sa Four Sisters. At saka nabanggit ko na nung una medyo tinatanggal pa ako sa Tuhog kasi hindi sumasakto sa schedule ko. Even sa Four Sisters and a Wedding medyo may balak na sila palitan ako because of my schedule again. Siguro isa yun sa mga bagay na handa ako gawin, kaya kong magtrabaho ng hindi natutulog. Kaya ko magtrabaho na mainit, hindi nakaligo, wala sa aking kaso yun. Kaya siguro kung sasabihing paborito ako, hindi ko masasabing paborito ako, mas handa lang ako magtrabaho na walang arte,” he explained.

Enchong said that even his working relationship with former ladylove Julia Montes has become better now. “Naging maganda na kasi yung samahan namin ngayon. Ayoko na maiba pa yung pagkakaibigan namin kasi we were able to keep that na karamihan sa mga dating nagkaroon ng link ay hindi nagkakaroon ng magandang outcome so hanggang dun na lang. Kumbaga, hayaan na natin sa pagkakaibigan kasi ayaw na namin sayangin kasi nagkaayos na kami kaya hanggang dun na lang. Kasi na-e-enjoy namin ngayon kung ano man yung naayos namin noon kaya siguro huwag na natin balikan kung ano man yung dati. Kaya even the past we don't talk about it anymore,” he said.

The 24-year-old actor also reacted to being dubbed as a “John Lloyd Cruz-in-the-making.” Enchong said he is humbled by the compliment. “Unang una sa lahat, John Lloyd is irreplaceable. Idol ko si kuya John Lloyd. Hindi ko alam kung ano yung nagawa ko mula noon hanggang ngayon para masabi ni direk Cathy (Garcia-Molina) pero siguro may isang eksena na ginawa namin na may tinanong siya tapos pagkasagot ko ang sabi nya, 'Alam mo, parehong pareho kayo ni John Lloyd.' Siguro it has something to do with the work. Hindi ko po kayang sagutin yan pero maraming maraming salamat kung nag-a-agree kayo dito,” he said.
