With his latest teleserye Init Sa Magdamag all set to premiere on April 19, Gerald Anderson said he was happy to be offered the lead role of Christoper “Tupe” Salcedo, a humble community doctor who meets the love of his life in yam Concepcion.

 

 

“Siguro kasi galing ako sa A Soldier’s Heart so nung binasa ko yung pilot week, ito yung unang script namin, na-excite ako kasi yung mga challenges na hinaharap ni Tupe never ko pa siya na-tackle bilang actor. Yung sacrifices na willing siyang gawin para sa pag-ibig, parang personally na-attract ako dun. Kasi grabe yung adjustment niya sa buhay niya, grabe yung na-sakripisyo niya sa buhay niya para sa great love niya na si Rita yung character ni Yam,” he shared during the Init Sa Magdamag media launch. 

After his big interview with Boy Abunda last month where he finally revealed that he was in a relationship with Julia Barretto, Gerald admitted he was happy to have the truth out in the open.

“Personally, it’s just something na kailangan ko lang gawin siguro for peace of mind. Parang nabunutan ako ng tinik. And wala, after that tuloy lang ang buhay. Merong mas malalaking problema na hinaharap nating lahat kesa sa yung interview ko kay tito Boy (Abunda). Pero personally it’s something that I had to do and move on na,” he said.

Just like his latest role, Gerald admitted to have gone through sacrifices for the people he loves which is why he relates closely to the character.

 

 

“Marami akong na-sakripisyo din dahil sa pag-ibig. Kaya ako na-attract kay Tupe agad kasi he’s very selfless. Isa siyang community doctor sa bundok. Yung passion niya para tumulong sa iba na mas nangangailangan ng tulong is also one trait na doon ako na-attract sa kanya. At kung paano siya magmahal. Hindi siya yung tao na kailangan isigaw sa buong mundo yung pagmamahal niya sa relationship. Kumbaga alam niya ang gusto niya at gagawin niya ang lahat para sa mga taong malapit sa kanya, yung mga mahal niya sa bahay. So siguro doon ako nakaka-relate sa kanya,” he explained.

Even though art may imitate life, Gerald said he has no problem separating the two when he is on or off camera.

“Magaling ako maghiwalay ng personal life ko sa ginagawa ko sa set. Kung ano man yung pinagdadaanan ko, kunwari nasa gitna ako ng controversy or wala, kung nasa isang sitwasyon ako sa buhay ko na masaya ako, hindi naaapektuhan yung trabaho ko sa set and kung ano man yung status ng puso ko sa nagtratrabaho ako. Hiwalay siya sa ginagawa ko pero dun ko kinukuha yung motivation ko sa character ko,” he added.
