MANILA - Actor Ian Veneracion feels honored to be part of ABS-CBN's upcoming series "Pangako Sa 'Yo" featuring the popular love team of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.

In an interview on Thursday, Veneracion said he considers playing the iconic role of Eduardo Buenavista -- originally portrayed by Ton Ton Gutierrez -- a big opportunity.

"Naalala ko kung gaano kadami ang nag-aabang nito noon, kaya napakalaking opportunuity," he said. "I'll be playing the role of Eduardo Buenavista... Well educated, well-mannered at bilang panganay ay responsable siya sa pamilya at sa negosyo ng pamilya."

Veneracion went on to say that viewers will be treated to a "different interpretation" of "Pangako Sa 'Yo."

"Actually 'yung buong show, sarilli na naming interpretation ito. Even with the same director, si direk Dado was the writer and direk Rory naman ang director noon, ibang interpretation nito. Kasi nga iba ang panahon dati, hindi na natin maibabalik dati. 'Yung language noon, 'yung kung paano sila mag-react sa bagay-bagay, iba na. Kaya ibang version talaga," he said.

"Napakasarap kasi nararamdaman mo 'yung vibe nung buong team at saka talagang team effort. Kaya ako, pagdating sa location sa set, makikita mo 'yung director -- ay, hindi pwedeng hindi ka madala, nakaka-inspire," he added.

Aside from Bernardo and Padilla, the "Pangako Sa 'Yo" remake also stars Jodi Sta. Maria and Angelica Panganiban.
