What are his preparations for the show? "So far ang dami ko pang research eh kasi bagong bago sa akin 'tong character eh, ano siya coming of age of siya eh. Ngayon I am going for, marami akong pegs for now, the usual leading man. Kasi ever since character actor ako. This time leading man so nandon ako so madami akong pinapanood na movies," he said.
