Gerald Anderson added sizzle to the summer heat as he posed shirtless as the cover star of local fashion website Metro.Style.
The Kapamilya actor, who is celebrating his 15th anniversary in show business this month, bared his hard-earned abs and sculpted physique as he went shirtless in the photographs shot by Joey Espiritu and Kennedy Bui.
In the magazine, Gerald expressed disbelief that it has been 15 years since he embarked on his showbiz journey.
“15 years? Oo nga, no? Hindi ko masyado naisip ’yun, maybe it’s something I should celebrate. Mahirap lang mag-celebrate sa pinagdadaanan natin ngayon, but we’ll see. Maybe a small get-together lang. But 15 years, wow ang bilis ng panahon. What a journey!” he said.
“Habang ginagawa ko pa ’yun, nag-pitch sila ng bagong show, itong Init Sa Magdamag, and I said yes kasi napaka-unique nu’ng kwento eh, napaka-interesting niya. Hindi ko pa nagagampanan ’yung ganitong role, itong character, so I said yes. After a couple of years, siguro almost two years later, nagkaroon tayo ng pandemic and I was still taping A Soldier’s Heart, nawala na siya sa isip ko. Hindi ko alam kung matutuloy or hindi, as in wala na sa isip ko," he shared.
"Then right after ko matapos ’yung A Soldier’s Heart, tumawag ulit ang ABS-CBN and said na tuloy ’yung project and I said, ‘Really?’ Parang kakatapos ko lang ng isang lock-in, parang hindi ko alam kung kakayanin ko pang bumalik sa lock-in. But I’m very thankful na tinuloy ko at ginawa ko ’yung project because it’s really one for the books," he added.
Produced by Star Creatives Init Sa Magdamag also stars Yam Concepcion and JM de Guzman.
It airs weeknights and is available to access across nine platforms: Kapamilya Channel, Jeepney TV, A2Z, TV5, TFC, Kapamilya Online Live, iWant TFC, WeTV, and iflix.
