Young actor Gerald Anderson said that he will be facing a lot of challenges in ABS-CBN’s upcoming television series “Tayong Dalawa” with his long-time screen partner actress Kim Chiu and Jake Cuenca.

Anderson said that one of the challenges for him is portraying the role of a uniformed man.

“Iyong pagiging sundalo kasi first time ko at mas malalim ito sa ibang mga roles na ginawa namin,” he said.

In the series, Anderson will play the character of David Garcia or JR from the Philippine Air Force.  

The actor said that as preparation for his role he is now undergoing a lot of workshops with the rest of the cast under the supervision of well-known director Laurice Guillen.

Anderson, the son of a US Navy man in real life added that his father’s stories and suggestions help him to give justice to his character.

“Tinatanong ko siya minsan kung paano sila tumatayo, kung paano ang exercises nila, ang lakad nila,” he said.

More mature role with Kim


Anderson, known for his teeny-bopper roles, said that he will be doing a more mature role for “Tayong Dalawa.”

“Dito ang itsura ko lang bumata pero lalo na sa kwento ay napaka-mature namin. Gusto kong ikwento sa inyo pero iyon ang dapat abangan,” he said.

Anderson said that working for another project with Chiu is definitely a happy moment for him and he’s looking forward to starting the project.

“Masaya, saka we are both excited for the project,” he added.

Gerald Randolf Opsima Anderson Jr. was a former housemate of "Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 1".
