As his role as Bea Alonzo’s half-brother in the Primetime Bida series A Love to Last finally comes to an end this month, Enchong Dee revealed he has many favorite scenes in the family drama. “I think my vulnerable scenes with the Agoncillos and every time I have those kinds of scenes I always talk to Andeng. Kasi parang I think when people are so vulnerable, we are accepting that you are weak but you can rise above it afterwards. Yun basically. Siguro the continued search for belongingness kasi yung parang itinakbo ng buong show there’s a feeling na you won’t feel as comfortable or as yourself kapag hindi mo nararamdaman na belong ako dito sa lugar na ito. Until you find that group or that certain someone you won’t be happy and you won’t be contented,” he shared.
With his close real-life friendship with A Love to Last co-star Bea Alonzo, Enchong said it made work even more memorable. “I’m usually shocked pag na-su-surpass niya pag kasama ko yan sa iisang show kasi usually you will have a misunderstanding, you will have parang arguments. Magkasama kami sa dressing room, magkasama kami even outside the show so parang for us to survive these nine months of being together, tunay na kaibigan ko nga talaga si Bea. So I’m happy,” he said.
Although he admitted his role turned out different from what was originally pitched to him before the show started, Enchong said he is just thankful to be part of a successful production. “May difference siyempre pero sabi ko nga mahirap kasi yung reklamo ka ng reklamo? So I always remind myself to create an environment of gratitude more than complaints so puro pasasalamat lang ako lalo na ngayon. Alam ko naman na hindi ako pababayaan as you guys can see. Okay naman sa akin lahat kasi kakaiba siya sa ibang mga teleseryeng nagawa kasi napaka-relaxed. Sabi nga ni Bea it’s a slice of life,” he explained.
When asked during a recent A Love to Last presscon if he was happy overall with the exposure and storyline eventually given to his character, Enchong could not help but admit his real feelings about the matter. “I’ll be honest there was siguro two or three times ako nakipag-meeting just to ask kung ano yung nangyari dun sa character ko. But as they could see naman sa show meron naman siyang sariling kuwento eh. Of course people were expecting a bigger meatier role pero I think I have to remind myself na ang trabaho ko bilang actor is to be an actor, hindi naman para maging bida di ba?” he said.
With another teleserye project starting right after the series ends, Enchong said he is excited to start shooting with Louise Delos Reyes, Erich Gonzales, and Ejay Falcon. “I’m happy. I’m excited though. Kung masyado akong naging bitter sa show na ito hindi naman ako kumbaga nagrereklamo or kung reklamador ako I don’t think bibigyan ako ng pagkakataon na makatrabaho ulit so I’m happy,” he added.
