Anthony Jennings on being the next Kapamilya leading man: ‘Nakakaiyak, nakakakilig’

Kapamilya actor Anthony Jennings said he feels thankful for all the opportunities and projects that were given to him in the past year.

During the media conference for his latest show Tara, G!, he was asked if he thinks he is ready to be the next Kapamilya leading man.

 


 

Anthony was humbled to hear that he was being likened to other Kapamilya leading men such as Piolo Pascual, Paulo Avelino, and Daniel Padilla, among others.

“Para sabihin na next leading man, wow. Nakakaiyak siya, nakakakilig. Puro pagpapasalamat lang ‘yung kaya kong ibigay. Sana sa susunod malay natin. Tingnan natin kung ano pa mangyayari,” he replied.

The 21-year-old actor also shared how grateful he is to ABS-CBN and Star Magic for trusting him. Anthony admitted that he has been going to the gym lately for a leaner and stronger body.

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa tiwala na ibinibigay sa akin ng ABS-CBN … ng lahat actually. Pati mga kaibigan ko, lagi silang, ‘Gawin mo yan, magbuhat ka lang nang magbuhat,’” he said.

Even though the actor is getting compared to the other Kapamilya leading men, he humbly shared that he has a lot to learn as he is still in the early days of his career. Anthony also jokingly remarked that he might be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe one day.

“Hanggang ngayon naman nag-aaral pa rin ako, [I’m] still learning. Dinedevelop ko pa kung ano yung kaya kong idevelop pa. May mga kailangan pa rin talaga akong aralin. I think nagsisimula naman na siya. Tingin ko natututunan ko nang mas mabilis compared before. Nag grgrow naman ako,” he answered.

Anthony will be part of the youth-oriented program Tara, G! alongside Kaori Oinuma, Vivoree Esclito, JC Alcantara, Daniella Stranner, Zach Castañeda, and CJ Salonga. The show will air its first episode on October 7 on iWantTFC.
