Gerald Anderson on celebrating a decade in showbiz: ‘I want to be a good example’
032716-gerald_up.jpgGerald Anderson admitted that he is happy to celebrate two big milestones in his life this year: one is the launch of the Gerald Anderson Foundation K9 unit and the other is to celebrate his 10th year anniversary in showbiz after joining Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition. "Madami pa akong goals eh. I want to be remembered as someone na sa bawat project ibibigay ko ang lahat para sa proyekto, someone na hindi takot sa mga challenges, someone who inspires other actors kasi marami ding mga actors before me na nag-inspire sa akin. And siyempre being a good person, a good example,” he said.

For his next projects, Gerald said he does not want to be stuck in just one acting genre. “Kasi maganda kung mapaghalo mo ang comedy at drama at konti lang sa amin ang gumagawa ng ganyan. That’s what I want to do kasi bata pa lang ako mahilig na ako sa action. Idol ko sina Jackie Chan, yung mga ganun. And for me to do that, sobrang amazing. Itong movie na gagawin ko next na mag-sa-start na this week. Isa yan sa mga dream roles ha gagawin ko. Malalaman niyo yan very soon. Sobrang excited din ako dun,” he shared.

The 27-year-old actor said he is not aiming for any acting awards. "No, never. Bonus na lang yun eh. May ginawa akong MMK before yung Christmas vacation ko gumanap ako ng isang teacher na nagkaroon ng sakit. Lahat ng comments right after nung pinalabas yung episode was mananalo daw ako ng award. Sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam but the fact na nakatulong ako sa taong yun kasi nagkaroon pa kami ng fundraising. Ay hindi ko alam kung puwede ko sabihin pero nabuo namin, nakuha namin kung ano yung kailangan niya para sa operasyon niya. Yun award na yun para sa akin. Bonus na lang yun. Sobrang privileged ako sa lahat ng nagbibigay ng award sa akin. Sobrang thankful ako but hindi siya yung goal ko,” he explained.

With Leonardo Di Caprio’s recent Best Actor win at the Oscars, Gerald shared a video on his social media of himself watching the Hollywood actor get the award. "Yung excitement ko dun sobrang totoo yun. Sobang masaya ako para kay Leo. Parang close kami (laughs). Masaya ako para sa kanya kasi alam mong sobrang mahal niya yung ginagawa niya tapos finally na-recognize ng Oscars yung pinaghirapan niya dun sa movie. Grabe talaga yung ginawa niya dun kaya deserve niya yun,” he added.

After a decade in the industry, Gerald said he has yet to figure out what his next decade will be like. “Naku I wish pero lahat naman tayo wala tayong ganung klaseng plano di ba? Hindi natin alam kung anong puwedeng mangyari. Katulad nung nangyari kay direk Wenn Deramas. Just always enjoy every day of your life kasi hindi mo talaga alam. Di ba nagulat tayong lahat. Pag gising ko sinabi sa akin ng road manager ko na wala na siya kakagulat. Kapitbahay ko siya eh. Every time na magba-basketball ako nakikita ko yung bahay niya or lagi ko siyang nakakasalubong yung kotse niya so ganun kadali? So enjoyin niyo lang yung buhay niyo every day and lagi niyo dapat kasama yung mga mahal niyo sa buhay kasi once na mawala yun,” he said.
