|"The Legal Wife" actor JC De Vera
MANILA – New Kapamilya actor JC de Vera said he does not mind having fewer scenes compared to Angel Locsin, Maja Salvador and Jericho Rosales in their upcoming series “The Legal Wife.”
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, De Vera said he feels he is not in the position to complain because ABS-CBN has been really nice to him since his transfer.
“Para sa akin talaga, the fact na nakasama ako sa show with these award-winning actors, okay na ako. Hindi na ako nagrereklamo pagdating sa mga ganung issue, like 'yung sa trailer na kulang [ang exposure] or na baka 'yung role ko maliit lang. 'Yung fact lang na nakasama 'yung pangalan ko sa mga magagaling na aktor na ito, pakiramdam ko magaling na din ako,” he said.
De Vera said he is content with his role in “The Legal Wife” and it will be up to him to make his mark on the viewers when the series begins airing later this month.
“’Yun ang test sa akin ngayon, kung gaano ko kayang palakihin ang storya ko. Right now, kung saan kami nagshu-shoot pa, nakadikit na ako may Maja and Angel. Part na rin ako ng story nila so malaki na rin siya for me, hindi ko lang alam paano ite-take ng audience but okay na ako doon,” he said.
De Vera added he also feels fortunate to be working with Salvador, who was his first Kapamilya crush.
“[Masaya ako pero] na-outgrow ko na 'yung crush ko sa kanya kasi nakaka-work ko na. Hanggang doon lang ako. Masaya lang ako na nakikita ko ang mga taong ito,” he said.
Reiterating how grateful he is for this project, De Vera said: “Hindi ko na pinapansin [ang mga issues]. Very grateful lang ako pagdating ko sa ABS-CBN kasi pagkapasok ko pa lang, nagbigay na sila agad eh. Sino ba naman ako para magreklamo?”
Aside from “The Legal Wife,” De Vera said he is also working on another series, which will be part of ABS-CBN’s afternoon block. Titled “Moon of Desire,” De Vera will be working with sexy actresses Meg Imperial and Ellen Adarna in the upcoming show.
