“Sobrang saya nga po na nagbunga na ang five years ng pagi-struggle ko,” he says. “Swerte ngang may hit show ako sa primetime, meron ding hit show ang sister kong si Sanya Lopez in ‘Encantadia’ kaya tuwang-tuwa talaga ang family namin dahil malapit nang matupad ang dream namin to have our own house.”
In “Meant to Be”, he plays Andoy, the shy one compared to his colleagues Ken Chan, Addy Raj and Ivan Dorschner. “I can relate to my character kasi in real life, mahiyain din po talaga ako, pero hindi naman torpe.
Can he feel that “Meant to Be” had a positive effect on his career? “Ay, opo. Sobra, kasi nasa primetime pa kami. When we do mall shows, grabe ang reception ng tao sa amin. Di namin talaga ine-expect na magiging this big a hit ang show.”
How come there’s a rumor that he and Bianca Umali became on recently? “Not true. Naging close friends kami, special friends, kasi lagi kaming nagkakasama sa workshops ng GMA Artist Center. Pero hindi lang kami but a circle of friends sa workshop. Tropa po kami. Barkada.”
