MANILA -- Actor Vandolph Quizon admitted that ABS-CBN's hit series "Be Careful With My Heart" helped him move on after the death of his father, the late Comedy King Dolphy.

Dolphy died on July 10, 2012 after years of battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

"Naging busy po ako kahit paano and lahat naman po nang ginagawa ko kapag nagte-taping, my inspiration comes from dad. So palaging dapat attentive at active," Vandolph told ABS-CBNNews.com

"I'm so happy and blessed because lahat ng katrabaho ko ay napakabait, pati staff sobrang galing. What we do to make people happy, you can't buy that. Maraming nagsasabi sa akin na 'Hoy, hindi ako makakain kapag diko napapanood 'yung show.' Parang nakakataba lang ng puso na na-appreciate nila 'yung hirap na ginagawa namin for them," he added.

Vandolph, the late comedian's son with actress-politician Alma Moreno, said he is also happy that he is able to showcase his comedy talent in the show.

"Sobrang happy ako na 'yung character ko nalalaro ko na komikero pa din at the same time parang Baldo. Naalala ko ang 'Home Along,'" he said, referring to his character on the sitcom "Home Along Da Riles," which starred Dolphy.

Currently, Vandolph and the rest of the Quizon family are preparing for a fun run and a mini-concert to mark the second death anniversary of the veteran comedian.
