JC De Vera on Jessy Mendiola: ‘Girlfriend material siya’

050816-jessyjc_up.jpgIn the new Wansapanataym Just Got Laki, JC De Vera plays the role of a little boy who has a crush on full-grown woman played by Jessy Mendiola. Along with his friends (played by Nico Antonio and Nicco Manalo), JC finds a way to get closer to his crush. "Merong tatlong magkaibigan na bata na ang gusto nila madali silang lumaki tapos meron na rin siyang konting fantasy dahil nga agad agad na gusto na nilang lumaki meron silang nakilalang isang tao na magbibigay sa kanila ng candy na magbibigay sa kanila ng opportunity na tumanda at lumaki. Ang challenge sa akin kung paano ka mag-po-portray na parang bata na galing sa heavy drama na nag-e-exert ka ng so much effort para maging matured para makita ng audience na matanda ka na, matured na, responsible ka. Tapos galing sa ganun pupunta ka naman sa isip bata,” he shared.

After working with Jessy for two years on the soap Youre My Home, JC admitted he looked forward to their newest project together which started airing on May 8. "Masayahin lang siya, very light yung environment. Masarap talaga sa pakiramdam na meron kang katrabaho na sobrang kumportable ka, yung walang issues. Pag nasa work lang kayo talagang masaya lang kayo, kumportable at wala na kayong iniisip na iba. Any project siguro with Jessy will do. Ngayon slowly nakikilala na namin ang isat isa. After ng Youre My Home naging grateful and thankful kami sa lahat ng mga opportunities na dumadating kaya lahat ng trabaho tanggap ng tanggap. Nagkikita kami sa set araw-araw na four to five times a week,” he explained.

The 30-year-old actor admitted that he understands that fans of their tandem are curious if there is a chance to be a real-life couple but JC says maintaining their friendship is important right now. "Kasi Im sure yung mga taong nakapaligid sa amin nakikita rin na were both relaxed and were both steady. Pero proud ako kasi never pa kami nag-away or ayaw namin na maging magkatrabaho alam mo yun. Kasi ang sarap lang sa pakiramdam na nagtratrabaho ka ng magaan. So yun din yung nabibigay ni Jessy sa team up, magaan lang ang trabaho. Natatapos namin yung araw na okay kami, pareho kaming nakangiti, pagod pero masaya.  May respect sa isa’t isa so kung meron siyang nararamdaman or kung wala ako sa mood, alam namin kung paano timplahin,” he admitted.


With their busy schedules, JC says there isnt any time to hang out with Jessy outside of the set of their show. "Hindi kasi pagkatapos nung Youre My Home nagkaroon din ako ng sunod-sunod na trabaho. Si Jessy sunod sunod din yung mga raket niya, yung mga shows niya out of town. So ngayon may Wansapanataym at saka Banana Sundae tapos yung weekends namin pareho kaming out of town,” he added.

During the presscon for Wansapanataym Just Got Laki, JC admitted that he did notice one very important thing about Jessy. "Ang napansin ko kay Jessy she knows what she wants, alam niya kung saan siya papunta, kumbaga nagiging clear na sa kanya kung ano yung gusto niya ma-achieve for the next five to ten years. So masaya panuorin actually. Siyempre along the way nakikilala mo ng mas deeper kasi nga yun nga, ino-observe ko lang siya everyday na ganun. Girlfriend material siya,” he said.

When the time comes for him to get into a relationship, JC said he knows what he wants in a partner. "Depende na siguro yun kung mag-ko-connect kayo or hindi. Siguro most likely makakapili ako ng very responsible at independent na girl."
