MANILA, Philippines – The continued success of the ABS-CBN primetime series “Princess and I” has bolstered singer Khalil Ramos’ confidence about pursuing an acting career.
In an interview with Push.com.ph, Ramos, a former "Pilipinas Got Talent" finalist, said joining “Princess and I” was actually one of the best decisions he has ever made.
“Before I really got into this, I really thought about it, kung gusto ko ba talaga ito, kung kaya ko ba. Eventually I took it kasi hindi naman lahat ng tao nabibigyan ng opportunity na ganito. Of course I tried it and until now I think my decision was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because we’re No. 1,” he said.
Ramos said he did not expect the show to get such an overwhelming support from the viewers.
“It’s really unexpected and overwhelming kasi kahit kami we didn’t expect na the show would be No. 1 and would rate so high. So for a first teleserye, this experience has been really wow for me,” he said.
Because of the show's success, the 16-year-old said he would not hesitate to accept another project after “Princess and I.”
“I want to act. If I’m given more projects, movies or shows, I’ll definitely accept kasi I tried kung kaya ko ba talaga umarte. Makita ko and narinig ko from the directors na ayun nga, sinasabi nila na I can act. Direk Rory (Quintos), direk Dado (Lomibao), direk Francis (Pasion) sabi nila malayo pa mararating ko sa acting, so why not pursue it ‘di ba?” he said.
Asked who he would like to be his next leading lady, Ramos said: “Just to break the ice, kahit sino naman puwede pero I want to work with, kasi I heard babalik na si Julia Barretto, so ayun.”
Ramos said he met Barretto during the Star Magic Ball last September 1 and found her really nice.
“Mabait naman siya. If you ask me sino gusto ko makasama sa next project, it would definitely be her,” he said.
