Actor Enchong Dee feels lucky that his Fr. Sebastian character in the new ABS-CBN teleserye “Huwag Kang Mangamba” is giving him good vibes.
Describing Fr. Sebastian as the bearer of good news in Barangay Hermoso, the setting of the series, Dee feels it is indeed a blessing to portray the character.
“Siguro isa rin ito sa mga blessing na natanggap ko kasi ‘yung role ni Fr. Sebastian ay nadadamay ako. Minsan nakukuha ko ‘yung positivity at energy ni Fr. Seb na kahit si Enchong, kahit nabubuwisit ay parang hindi,” he said during the online press conference for the series on March 15.
(This is probably one of the blessings I have received, because I get affected by Fr. Sebastian. Sometimes I acquire the positivity and energy of Fr. Seb, that even though I am irritated, I seem not to be.)
Meanwhile, though the pandemic is still causing harm to the country, Dee remains positive and he is able to handle his fears.
“Siguro ‘yun din ang dahilan kung bakit I was able to look after other people or focus my energy on other people, because I know that my situation is okay,” he explained. (Maybe that’s the reason why I was able to look after other people or focus my energy on other people, because I know my situation is okay.)
Dee has also successfully ventured into vlogging and is actively producing and creating videos for his channel.
When asked if he would still be passionate about vlogging had there been no pandemic and had ABS-CBN been granted its franchise last year, Dee explained that conditions now led him to be more persevering.
“Hindi siguro kasing sipag ng nangyayari ngayon kasi talagang pinag-iisipan ko, nilalagyan ko ng puso at isipan ko kung anuman ang nilalagay ko sa vlog ko, because it is clear to me what I want to show to people and what I want to share with people. Siguro ‘yun lang ‘yung difference,” he said.
(Perhaps not as productive now, because I really think about and pour my heart into whatever I produce for my vlog, because it is clear to me what I want to show to people and what I want to share with people. Maybe that would be the only difference.)
Among the celebrities Dee has featured in his YouTube channel are Arjo Atayde, Joshua Garcia, Maja Salvador and Bea Alonzo. JB
