Though his character in the show is far from the action star roles he was able to portray before, he said that he is thankful to the viewers for accepting his new image.

"Happy ako at tsaka thankful ako dahil natanggap naman tayo ng viewer sa kabila nang hindi naman ito action. Alam naman ng lahat na identified tayo sa action movies so natutuwa ako dahil natanggap nila 'yung role ko at tsaka 'yung image binago."

He continued, "Yung una nga [sabi ko] 'Ha? Gagawin akong lover boy?' Parang ang pakiramdam ko trying hard Jeric Raval, trying hard magpaka-lover boy. Naririnig ko naman maganda ang feedback so the peole are responding, it's a good sign na natutuwa sila sa Jeric Raval na napapanood nila. At the same time maganda naman 'yung We Will Survive. Napapanood nila, maganda ang istroya, 'yung kabuoan ng kuwento."

Asked if he had diffuculties adjusting to his new image, he responded "Hindi naman ako masyadong nahirapan mag-adjust. Don lang sa pananamit ko, siyempre inilalayo nila ako don sa image ko so hindi naman ako masyadong nahirapan."

He shared that even his family is a fan of the show. "Tuwa sila, tuwa naman. Dati nga pag may showing akong movie di na sila nanonood eh parang wala lang pero ngayon nanood sila surprisingly 'yung mga anak ko inaabangan nila."

With his hectic schedule, he relayed the he makes sure that he manages his time well between work and family life. "It's a matter of time management kahit naman noong araw ganon ako eh alam kong i-manage ang oras ko. May oras para sa pamilya, may oras para sa trabaho, taping, shooting."

The actor  shared that his children are now all grown up. "Ang mag anak ko malalaki na, 'yung eldest ko 22, yung youngest ko malaki na rin."

Does he want them to enter showbiz like him? "Kung ako ang tatanungin, ayaw ko sana kasi mas gusto ko 'yung focus sila don sa pag-aaral. You'll never go wrong pag tinapos mo 'yung pag-aaral mo. Ang pag-aartista eh hindi naman permanent yan. When you grow old iba na ang role mo pero siyempre pag ikaw ay titulado, kahit anong edad titulado ka pa rin."
