Manolo Pedrosa said that he is ecstatic to be part of the primetime teleserye Hawak Kamay after his stint in the Big Brother House. “Masaya po ako kasi na-realize ko po na having Hawak Kamay, blessed na ako and maraming projects going on so masaya po ako,” he said.
The PBB All-In ex-housemate admitted that there is pressure on his part knowing that it is his first acting gig. “Siyempre po meron po kasi it’s a primetime show so sa tingin ko mataas ‘yung standards ng acting. Siyempre it's my first time to act so yes po may pressure,” he said.
Like any other artists, Manolo has his share of supporters and bashers. He said that he is happy there are more supporters after he got out from the Big Brother house. “Masaya naman kasi wala masyadong bashers when I went outside the house more on good fans and I’m happy na I appreciate them because they do so much to support me.”
Manolo hopes to work with teen stars like Julia Barretto in the future. “Siguro po ‘yung mga teens, si Julia Barretto, siyempre po mas maganda ‘yung mga ka-age ko para it would suit my age, parang teens-teens,” he said.
Manolo was linked to co-housemate Nichole Baranda while they were still inside the PBB house. The teen star underscored that they are still getting to know each other as of the moment. “Kasi ‘yung stage namin sa PBB house kasi is getting to know stage so outside the house it's still like that, I don't want to rush things,” he stated.
