Daniel Matsunaga said that working with Kim Chiu and Xian Lim in Past Tense has been an amazing experience. “Very masaya, every day lagi sa taping di ba we spend time together and talagang we enjoy ‘yung time na outside and sa work and sobrang bait silang dalawa sa akin,” he said.
The model-actor relayed that he has learned a lot about acting while he was doing the film. “Siyempre ano mas maganda maraming experience as an actor. Every scene di ba you learn something with it para sa akin I’m starting lang dito sa showbiz and this movie taught me a lot of things, a lot of different kind of camera positions, Tagalog lines and everything. Every time that I’m acting with different artist I’m learning.”
Daniel admitted that one of the biggest challenges he encountered was speaking in straight Tagalog. “Siguro pinakamahirap ngayon ‘yung Tagalog talaga pero kaya ko naman ngayon so better now than before.”
Daniel shared that he is focused now on his career and that he has no time to be in a relationship. “Yes, I’m really focused on my career that’s why wala akong tulog, focus sa trabaho kahit nandito ‘yung nanay ko ako wala talaga akong time to spend with her pero siyemrpre blessings di ba? Never complain. I’m really, really happy na this is happening na at the same time sobrang busy talaga ako ngayon. Dalawang movies, Past Tense, and Shake, Rattle and Roll and I’m also doing mga rakets, magazine shoots and everything at the same time. Right now siyempre focus muna ako sa trabaho, importante ‘yung trabaho sa future pag walang trabaho may problema so ‘yun pag may trabaho I’m really focused sa future.”
Daniel also commented on the upcoming wedding of his ex-girlfriend Heart Evangelista. “I’m very, very happy for her. February is the month of her birthday as well. She was really nice the whole time. She was my ex and ‘yun very happy for her and Chizz I met him, sobrang bait siya and ‘yun they deserve each other. You know I’m very happy for her. I wish them the best. I hope they will put God on the center of their relationship and everything will work,” he stated.
Is he willing to attend Heart’s wedding? “Well, yeah pag wala akong trabaho. Yeah for sure pag meron akong invitation, pag meron akong invitation okay naman. But I’m very, very happy for them, friends naman.”
