JC De Vera says he wants Maja Salvador as a leading lady someday


110514-jc_main.jpgAfter starring in the movie Once a Princess, JC De Vera admitted that aside from drama, he wants to venture into doing action movies if given the chance. “Wala pa akong talagang naiisip pero hopefully dito sa ABS-CBN makagawa ako ng isang action series na nag-re-require talaga ng a lot of physical activity. Gusto ko sana ma-experience kung ano yung na-experience ng mga action stars natin before like mga blastings, yung mga heavy fight scenes, yung mga ganyan. Ngayon kasi alam ko na wala yung genre na ‘yun. I’m hoping na sana one day makatulong ako para makabalik yung genre na yun and sana I’m praying na mabigyan ako ng opportunity na ganun. Siyempre once na mabuhay ulit yung action, marami kaming matutulungan din na tao gaya ng mga stuntman, mga directors. Mas magiging makulay ang industry kapag kumpleto so I’m hoping one day,” he said.

When it comes to action movies, JC said he has always been a fan even before he entered showbiz. “Of course number one ko si Robin Padilla hindi siya mawawala sa list ko. Lately napanuod ko si Jason Statham. So maraming magagandang action movies and action stars sa Hollywood na nag-e-evolve na. They’re bringing action to a different level na. I’m praying na yung level of action nila dun sana madala nila dito at makagawa kami eventually. Kasi siyempre mag-re-require siya ng malaking budget talaga,” he explained.

JC shared that his dream leading lady for his dream movie is also a fellow Kapamilya. “Depende kasi yun kung ano yung character na gagawin nila. Kung mag-a-action, si Maja Salvador kasi isa siya yung isa sa nakikita kong very fit talaga. Sobrang sexy tapos malakas yung cardio, yung itsura ng katawan niya alam mong tough. So isa si Maja and si Sarah Geronimo pag action-comedy. Pag sa ABS-CBN kasi depende sa kung anong hihingin mo at kung ano ang hiningi mo, meron silang naka-ready. Kaya hindi ako makakapili dito kasi kahit sinong piliin mo dito puwede ‘di ba?” he added.

110514-jc_main.jpgAfter transferring networks last year, the 28-year-old actor said he has been content with how his career is being handled at the moment. “Honestly, masaya lang ako na nabibigyan ako ng magagandang roles dito sa ABS-CBN and wala akong ibang hinihingi sa kanila dahil malaki yung tiwala ko sa network na mabibigyan nila ako ng magagandang roles talaga. Never naman ako naging choosy, never ako namili, never ako naghanap ng sobra sa kung ano yung binibigay sa akin. Kasi alam ko na siyempre may purpose kung bakit ako yung linagay dun and alam naman natin lahat na hindi naman basta basta maglalagay ng kung sinu-sinong artista sa mga projects kung hindi talaga sila bagay so I think I’m in good hands and naniniwala ako dun sa mga director ko na matutulungan nila ako. Never talaga ako namili and pagdating naman sa leading ladies, lahat naman sila dito magagaling talaga. Kahit sino ibigay mo or kung sino maka-partner ko, alam kong productive, magiging maganda yung outcome kasi talagang hasa na lahat ng mga tao. Very prepared na sila. So ako kahit rom-com or drama or heavy drama or kung gusto niyo pa ng action meron dito sa ABS-CBN lahat makikita niyo. So ako nag-aantay lang ako at never ako mamimili talaga,” he explained.

JC said he likes living his life without regrets. “Never akong nag-consider na meron akong maling nagawa. Not that I’m saying na malinis talaga akong tao, na hindi ako gumagawa ng mali. Pero lahat kasi ng pagkakamali ko kaya pang ayusin. Naaayos naman tapos lahat dinadaan ko siya through experience na lang. No regrets sa kahit ano kasi lahat naman yun makakatulong ko sa experience ko bilang isang tao,” he admitted.

As he gears up for his newest role in the teleserye Pasion de Amor, JC said he now watches what he eats. “Healthy living lang talaga, pagdating sa food lahat in moderation lang. Siyempre hindi mo naman puwede sabihin na for a whole year hindi naman puwedeng strict ka sa diet mo, tao ka lang naman din. Gusto mo kumain ng masarap (laughs). Right now, nag-ku-cut lang ako ng calories so I still eat the same food that I eat like desserts, yung mga junk food, pero lahati in moderation walang sobra,” he said.

With a busy career this year, JC said his personal life has been taking a backseat. “I'm looking (laughs). I'm looking for a partner. Nothing specific naman pagdating sa physical pero pag sa ugali kailangan someone entertaining and someone whose very flexible in terms of sa family, friends and kay God of course,” he shared.
