As one of the lead stars in the new digital series GVBOYS: Pangmalakasang Good Vibes, actor Dave Bornea said he was happy to be cast along with Jerome Ponce and Nikko Natividad who all play tenants in the same boarding house. The Cebuano actor talked about his latest project which was inspired by ‘90s sitcom Palibhasa Lalake.

“Minsan napapabisaya ako kasi Bisaya ako. Ewan ko lang kung meron bang character sa Palibhasa Lalake na medyo magka feminine or baka sinali lang dun. Kasi yung character ko medyo may pagka feminine. Gusto nilang hulihin ng mga boys kung ano ba talaga ako and sa dulo dun nila malalaman kung sino talaga yung pagkatao ko.”

The 26-year-old actor revealed that he experienced anxiety last year because of the lockdown. “I think lahat naman hindi nakalusot sa anxiety. Lahat naman tayo nakaranas nun dahil nga dito sa pandemic. But then ang ginawa ko lang din, sinayaw ko na lang since may talent naman tayo at saka hobby naman natin sumayaw. Eh di nagturo ako ng dance class online. Yun lang. Yun yung nagpagaan ng pandemic life ko. Ang sayaw.

“Kasi may mga friends din ako from the dance community, sila rin yung nag-pu-push sa akin to try na magturo naman ako. Since may mga gusto din naman matuto and since may mga fan base din tayo na gusto sumali even though hindi naman sila into dancing, nakapag-inspire lang, kumbaga,” he said.

Dave also said it was his passion for dancing that helped keep his mental health in check until now. “Nitong pandemic sobrang nag-focus ako sa dancing. Kasi yung dancing sobrang habit ko talaga yan eh so pag may mga free time ako gumagawa ako ng mga Tiktok videos and pag hindi naman ako gumagawa ng mga Tiktok videos, gumagawa ako ng mga freestyle dance. Ganun. So more on sayaw talaga ako. kapag walang trabaho, sayaw, ganyan. Minsan nagpapa-dance class ako,” he added.
