As part of the cast of Primetime Bida’s newest teleserye The Good Son, Alexa Ilacad admitted there is pressure on her and her love team partner Nash Aguas. “I honestly think that anyone starting a new show will always feel pressured but primetime is a really, really big deal so like double the pressure but I’m sure this show will thrive and I pray that it will,” she shared.
In the series, Alexa plays the role of Justin, the best friend of Calvin (Nash Aguas). “Actually I’m his total opposite if he as Calvin is very shy, quiet and very timid, I am the more outspoken, loud, like a ball of sunshine kumabaga. I try to brighten up his days since marami siyang pinagdadaanan within his family and within the other family. So I’d say my character is very intriguing but that’s all I can say for now. I don’t want to spoil it,” she explained.
Alexa said she is not worried to go up against other pairings in the show which also stars Joshua Garcia, Jerome Ponce, Loisa Andalio, Elisse Joson, and McCoy De Leon. “Yung tatlong love teams sa show have different stories and may different ways din kami of pagpapakilig to the audience. But I think yung sa story namin ni Nash, right now with what we’re taping nag-fo-focus kami sa starting friendship ni Calvin and Justin but still sana with our scenes kiligin pa rin yung audience. For me I think it’s an effort kasi matagal na rin kami as a love team. We want to show different ways din naman ng pagpapakilig hindi yung usual na pa-sweet,” she explained.
Just like her character in the show, Alexa said she always tries her best to be a good daughter. “On a scale of one to ten siguro I’d give myself an eight because like any other person or daughter, ang dami ko ring imperfections, ang dami ko ring kasalanan sa aprents minsan makulit at matigas ang ulo but I think it’s a normal thing. IT’s a part of growing up but I make up for it in other ways,” she shared.
