Actor Gerald Anderson says he finds deeper meaning of life in "Budoy."

MANILA, Philippines – Actor Gerald Anderson said his life as an actor feels complete after he was chosen as the lead star of ABS-CBN's newest primetime series, "Budoy."

In an interview with "The Buzz" on Sunday, Anderson said Budoy, his character, is a "dream role" and "a role of a lifetime."

The premiere episode of "Budoy" will air on ABS-CBN on Monday night.

"Sobra akong blessed, sobra akong thankful," he said.

"Sobra kaming proud kasi ibinuhos namin lahat dun and we did everything para gumanda ang show," he added.

Love life

Meanwhile, Anderson admitted that he misses having a special someone in his life.

"Siyempre may kulang pa rin. Kung walang love life, may kulang pa rin... Minsan nakaka-miss din 'yung may gumu-goodnight sa'yo, may naga-I miss you sa'yo, kumain ka na ba?" he said.

"Medyo mahirap din po 'yan (having a love life and a successful career at the same time). You have to focus on one thing lalo na po sa isang role na kagaya ng Budoy."

Aside from taping for his newest TV series, Anderson is also shooting his second movie with Sarah Geronimo under Star Cinema.
