MANILA – Gerald Anderson could not wait any longer for his new series “Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin” to hit the TV screens.

“We’re all very excited. May shinoot akong isang eksena noong isang araw na sobrang drama, action-packed, so sana abangan ng marami yun,” Anderson said.

Anderson said though that it is okay for him that his series won’t air “very soon” since ABS-CBN has a lot of other good projects lined up.

“Marami pang magandang shows ngayon so we just have to wait and see... Sa right time pa siguro. Abangan niyo po, I’m sure magugustuhan niyo,” he said.

Aside from Anderson, “Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin” will also feature Cristine Reyes and Rayver Cruz.

In the Kapamilya soap, childhood friends Amanda (Reyes) and Miguel (Anderson) temporarily part as she leaves for another country.

But when Miguel lands behind bars, this motivates Amanda to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer, in the hope of helping free the man she loves.

Also starring Dina Bonnevie and Dawn Zulueta, "Bukas Nalang Kita Mamahalin" will premiere soon on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida block.

Cannes hangover

Meanwhile, Anderson admitted that he could not get over his experience at the Cannes International Film Festival.

“’OTJ’ malapit na rin, abangan niyo po yan, it’s very exciting. Kumbaga sana po panoorin niyo kasi sobrang proud yung mga tao dahil mainit yung pagtanggap sa abroad. Sana dito rin. Sobrang proud lang ako bilang isang Pinoy at kasi nire-represent ko 'yung Pilipinas,” he said.

Anderson said the success of “OTJ” at Cannes has inspired him and Cruz to do better in “Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin.”

“Sobrang saya. Sabi ko nga kay Rayver, ‘Ray balik na tayo sa Pinas gusto ko na mag-taping’ dahil mas inspired ako bilang isang actor. Si Rayver din so lahat 'yun mapapanood niyo sa ‘Bukas Na Lang Kitang Mamahalin,’” he said.

It was earlier reported that Anderson’”OTJ,” which also stars Piolo Pascual, received a standing ovation during its screening at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.

The Erik Matti-directed film was among the selections of the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs or the Directors' Fortnight, a section at Cannes held independently by the French Directors Guild.
