With La Vida Lena now on its last week finale run, Kit Thompson said he is getting himself ready to part with his onscreen role as Miguel Villarica on the show.

“It was a different experience at the time because this was the first lock-in taping that I did. So it was a very different experience in terms of work. But we all got to bond and we got to know each other a lot more than compared to before na uuwi kami sa bahay. Talagang iba eh, andun kami and we’re stuck there. It was fun. Ang similarities namin ni Miguel is he would do anything in his way to get what he wants. Pag may gusto siya parating may paraan. Parati niyang makukuha ang gusto niya makuha. I’m like that in a way but not to that extent (laughs),” he shared during the La Vida Lena finale media conference last January 31.

After a more than seven-month run, Kit said he has learned a lot from working with his co-stars Erich Gonzales and JC De Vera as well as the more veteran members of the cast like Raymond Bagatsing, Janice De Belen, and Agot Isidro.

“Siguro it’s about always being prepared before you come to the set but at the same time, learn to have fun with it. Learn your character, learn to trust your co-actors. It just makes the work environment lighter and less stress for everyone. I learned to have fun and just take it easy,” he said.

Counting his tense scenes with JC as the most memorable for him on the show, Kit admitted he does not mind when viewers react negatively to him online after each episode.

“Maraming maraming magandang eksena and memorable eh. Pero siguro sa napanuod ko, my scene sa amin dalawa ni Adrian (JC De Vera) , yung suntukan namin. Actually marami kaming suntukan eh (laughs). Pero merong suntukan na nag-cheat sa akin si Rachel (Sofia Andres) tapos nahuli ko yung lalake. Maganda yun. Tapos siguro yung pinaka tumatak sa akin na palagi ko nababasa on social media is naiinis sa akin yung mga viewers, naiinis sila kay Miguel. So it’s nice to see these reactions from the people watching because you know na nagiging effective lahat ng ginawa niyo and it’s working. So I’m very grateful for the opportunity and I’m very grateful also for the people and everyone who’s watching and supporting the show,” he added.
