Gerald Anderson said that his role in the upcoming soap Nathaniel is one of his toughest roles to date. “It’s very different, kakaiba ‘yung role ko, it's one of my most challenging dahil ang daming emotions eh. Sa first week pa lang namin… ito ‘yung first na sobrang mabusisi talaga sa pilot. Grabe we had some reshoots, may mga eksenang inulit namin. Talagang grabe sobrang mabusisi sila first week pa lang,” he said.
He added, “Mabigat siya lalo na sa part namin ni Shaina (Magdayao) sa simula, malalaman niyo kung bakit pero mabigat siya pero gagaan siya kasi pambata ‘yung show pero hands up to the writers namin kasi napakagaling ng kwentong naisip nila.”
On his Christmas plans, Gerald shared that he will be spending it with his family at his home. “Ano lang this time sa bahay lang. We are celebrating at my house with my family and friends, ganon lang something simple lang basta kasama ko sila.” When asked if what are his holiday plans with his girlfriend Maja Salvador, he commented, “I don’t know yet, secret na lang, we'll see. Dito lang naman ako.”
Now that his brother Ken Anderson has also joined showbiz, Gerald has been very supportive. “Sobra nakakatuwa nga kasi nanood kami nong ginawa nila sa kabilang channel, nanood kami sa bahay ko parang premier night eh lahat kami nandon so basta masaya siya at alam mo ‘yung stay positive at kung pakiramdam niya tama ‘yun, nandito lang kami para sumuporta.” On his advice for his brother, Gerald relayed, “Mag-ingat sa mga interview ‘yun ang pinaka number one kasi mabilis ma-misinterpret, maging iba ‘yung dating sa mga tao.”
On Ken doing more sexy roles, Gerald said that he is okay with it. “Maganda naman ‘yung katawan niya bahala na siya kung ano ang gusto niyang gawin.” He also reacted to the constant comparisons between them. “Magkamukha kami magkapatid kasi kami, nagulat ako magaling din siya umarte, meron din siya so pag nag-retire ako siya naman ang bubuhay sa akin,” he quipped.
