In his role as one of Erich Gonzales’s leading men in the drama series La Vida Lena, JC De Vera said he plays a larger than life role of a very powerful man.

Isang matapobre at mayabang na tao si Adrian. Galing siya sa pamilya ng mga Narciso. Very powerful sila, very entitled so isa siya sa mga mapapaibig kay Lena. Si Adrian very brat kasi lahat ng gusto niya kailangan makuha niya and walang makakapigil sa kanya kaya siya nagiging mayabang talaga kasi alam niyang very rich and powerful yung family niya. Kaya niyang gawin ang kahit anong gusto niyang gawin,” he shared.

Unlike his past roles in recent series like Pamilya Ko and The General’s Daughter, JC shared what makes this series different.

This is actually my first time to portray an offbeat character. First time ko to portray na hindi naman siya kontrabida talaga pero dahil nga dun sa tinatakbo ng character niya. Masyado siyang mayabang kasi kaya lahat ng bumabangga sa kanya, lahat ng kumokontra sa kanya kinakalaban niya. Pero meron naman siyang magandang puso,” he explained.

As a loving husband and family man to his non-showbiz wife Rikka and their daughter Lana, JC said that being away from them is the most difficult part of his job.

Ang hindi na nakakasanay talaga is yung pagpaalam sa pamilya. Mahirap talaga kasi yung pag-condition sa isip mo to be away from my wife and my baby siyempre napakahirap talaga. Siyempre sila since first time nila mararamdaman din na wala ako, ang hirap i-explain eh. Pero ang hirap talaga. Hindi nakakasanay na pakiramdam. Na every time na aalis ka sa bahay, mabigat palagi yung loob namin. But of course work is work. Kung ano yung ibigay sa amin na trabaho, kung ano yung kailangan namin gawin, we have to comply and be responsible. Gagawin pa rin namin yung best namin,” he said.
