JC de Vera is grateful and happy about the continuous success of his afternoon soap The Better Half. The actor extended his gratitude to the fans who supported and remained loyal to the show.
“Lahat ng pinaghihirapan namin sa taping maganda ‘yung outcome and maraming nakaka-appreciate [kaya] masayang-masaya kami dahil hindi lang ‘yung mga Filipinos dito sa Philippines ang nagi-enjoy sa show namin kundi ‘yung mga viewers din ng TFC (The Filipino Channel) all over the world na napapanood kami at na-appreciate nila,” he said in an interview with PUSH.
JC relayed that the show has been extended. “Very happy kami na since na-extend kami for a couple of weeks, mas pinaghahandaan pa namin ang ending,” he said.
His onscreen chemistry with Shaina Magdayao has been commended by the viewers. Asked if what’s the secret behind their great team-up, he replied, “Sa totoo lang, parang magic lang siya na very, very comfortable ako when it comes to Shaina, na wala kaming pinlano. Hindi kami nag-usap kung paano namin gagawin ‘yung team-up namin. Talagang wala lang, para lang siyang magic na natural lang siya lumalabas.”
The actor was all praises for Shaina’s talent and said that he is grateful to have worked with her on a project. “Masayang-masaya ako na ‘yung katrabaho ko, ‘yung partner ko sobrang galing so ako feeling ko iron sharpens iron na kung magaling ‘yung kasama mo, gagaling din ‘yung isa so actually binibitbit ako ni Shaina,” he stated.
After The Better Half, JC will start shooting for a Star Cinema movie with Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban. Is he pressured considering that he will be working with two renowned film actresses?
“Excited ako more than pressured. Mas iniisip ko siya every day na makakasama ko ‘yung dalawa sa pinakamagaling sa industriya,” he answered.
JC shared that it will not be a drama film. “Different approach siya, comedy siya and hindi siya mabigat eh. Di ba ‘yung mga kasama ko known sila for drama pero this time comedy ang gagawin so sobrang excited ako,” he shared.
