With netizens reacting to his steamy scenes with Yam Concepcion in the trailer of their new show Init Sa Magdamag, Gerald Anderson said he is proud to star in the latest Kapamilya series which starts this week.

“Nakakatawa talaga yung mga reactions but at the end of the day, yung pagtanggap sa amin, that’s something na hindi ko in-expect and hanggang ngayon eh hindi ako makapaniwala kasi I guess everyone is bored now and napanuod nila yung trailer it’s something exciting and I think yung pinakamagandang comment na nabasa ko is quality, ang ganda nito and iba talaga gumawa ang ABS-CBN.

“To be part of a project na pinaghirapan and may ma-o-offer na maganda at malalim na kuwento. Yun talaga yung nagbibigay sa akin ng motivation na makapag-provide kami ng magandang kuwento para sa mga tao lalo na sa panahon na ito and marami ring comments na ganun,” he explained.

Known as a serious athlete as well as actor, Gerald said he made sure to prepare his body for his sexy scenes by working out even during their lock-in taping.

“Meron kaming maliit na gym lang dun so nag-wo-workout lang ako dun pag nagpa-pack up. But mentally, as an actor, ayoko yung pagdating sa set parang handang handa na ako. Para maging mas natural. Kung ano yung nararamdaman ng character kumbaga, kung ano yung excitement or yung pagiging nerbiyoso niya. Ayoko lang kasi na pagdating dun planado na kasi makikita naman sa camera,” he shared.

Gerald shared the story of what went on behind the cameras the day they shot the viral underwear scene.

“Actually, nakakatawa yan yung eksena na mag-bi-brief ako. Kasi yung set up ng taping namin tuloy tuloy kami so nung dumating yung scene na yan, lumapit sa akin yung wardrobe at may inabot sa akin na brief lang. Sabi ko, ‘Ano ‘to?’ Sabi niya, ‘Kuya, damit mo sa next scene.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ha? (laughs) Ano ‘to ba’t brief lang?’ Tapos yung brief pa na unang binigay sa akin parang pa-Speedo na eh, medyo revealing. So sabi ko hanap muna tayo ng ibang brief kasi hindi pa ako ready. Kumbaga hinahanda ko muna yung sarili ko kasi nabigla nga ako.

“But nung ginawa namin yung eksena, yung magkasama kami ni Yam (Concepcion), isa yan sa mga kukunan namin. Siyempre may ilangan pa yun. Yung mga directors namin very professional, si direk Raymond (Ocampo) bumababa siya ng set, nag-brief din siya. So alam ko kung bakit niya ginawa yun. para ipakita sa akin yun para maging kumportable ako. Pero yung effort niya, again it’s nice to work with passionate people kasi hindi naman niya kailangan gawin yun pero pinakita niya sa akin na parang nasa same boat kami. And siguro nakita ni direk na nakakailang din talaga. Kasi you have to imagine na hindi lang naman kami ni Yam yung nandun eh. Meron kang mga 30 na tao pa sa likod ng camera. I’m just very thankful na may nakasama ako na ganun ka-professional na tao,” he explained.
