There is going to be one glaring difference between this character of his on "Kadenang Ginto" from the rest of his past roles --this one's not a wealthy businessman, shared Richard Yap.
While starving everyone of specific details, the actor described Leon as the "referee" to the much-followed rivalry of leads Romina (Beauty Gonzalez) and Daniela (Dimples Romana).
He also said that Leon is "quite complex," and that fans will need to "dig deeper" to find out who he truly is.
"Ibang-iba si Leon dito kasi hindi siya mayaman," Yap told reporters at a press conference held Friday. "Dito magumpisa ako from the bottom and magtutulungan kami ni Romina."
He added that he's "honored" to be part of the show, which has been one of the surprise hits of the year. It was the 7th most watched program last June --a feat for a program outside the primetime block.
This is Yap's first TV role after losing the race for a congressional seat in the mid-term elections.
He denied that he was contemplating switching networks, and only took a break from showbiz because of his election bid.
