It’s been a couple of years since actor Mark Anthony Fernandez decided to return to acting after a more than decade long hiatus. The 43-year-old actor, who is currently starring in the new Vivamax thriller film Deception, believes he has only gotten better with age.
“All through the years, I feel I’m just a little older and with more input. The older the leather the better. As wine ages, the better. So parang ganun. Life is the best teacher so feeling ko through prayers, yung mga input na pumasok sa akin, kung ano yung mismong core ko nadagdagan ng input,” he shared during the Deception digital media conference.
Playing the role of Claudine Barretto’s scheming husband in the new drama thriller, Mark Anthony admitted his former teen love team partner has changed in a lot of ways since they first got paired together in the 1995 films Mangarap Ka and Pare Ko.
“Full bloom na babae na siya. Talagang tunay na lady na siya kasi nag-bear na siya ng baby. And mas super independent niya and successful society girl siya. Naging successful sa society siya na babae,” he said.
During the Deception media conference, the two lead stars fielded questions regarding a possible real-life relationship again since they are both currently single. Mark said he was serious about the possibility of courting his ex-girlfriend again.
“Totoo yun. Though we’re close, trying to get closer, more closer with boss Clau, minsan nawawala siya eh. So tinitingnan ko if I can test the water, parang ganun. Posible kung mangyayari in the four years or three years. Pero pag lumagpas dun parang imposible na. Yun lang nag iniisip ko. Pag hindi kami nagka-loving loving in the next three years, wala ng mangyayaring ganun. Co-actors na lang kami. Pero siguro in the next three, four years nagka-jelling jelling kami, puwede. Pero beyond that, hindi na ako aasa pa,” he explained.
During his birthday earlier this month, the Deception actor said he did not have any big celebration to welcome his 43rd year.
“Steady lang kasi may mga plans ako nun pero nagkaroon ako ng tonsilitis. Nung gumaling nag-chill lang ako, bumili ako ng masarap na pagkain, mga little detailed things. Masarap na pagkain, naligo, magandang gising, ayun. Kumbaga kada breath ko, linalasap ko talaga yung air. I’m just being appreciative talaga,” he added.
