Actor Gerald Anderson feels relieved at last that he admitted his relationship with Julia Barreto in an exclusive interview with Boy Abunda last March. Anderson believes that it was simply the proper next course of action and will have no impact on his career nor his personal life.
“Siguro sa career wala naman. Personally, wala. It’s just something na naramdaman ko na kailangan ko nang gawin for peace of mind. Nabunutan ako ng tinik. After that, wala, tuloy ang buhay,” Anderson replied when asked about the implications of his revelation. This he said during the online press conference for his latest soap opera,”Init Sa Magdamag,” on Monday, April 5.
(Probably [there will be no effect on] my career. Personally, none. It’s just something that I felt I needed to do for peace of mind. It was as if a thorn was pulled out. After that, nothing, life goes on.)
Anderson also believes there are other bigger problems to worry about, and asks the public to now “move on” from the issue of his relationship.
Meanwhile, Anderson is thankful for having Yam Concepcion as his leading lady in his latest soap opera. He revealed that during their first lock-in taping, their sexy scenes were the first ones to be shot; one where he was wearing only his briefs, another where they were romancing each other in a stream, and one in the falls.
Working with Concepcion for the first time was a “challenge,” he said, but he soon discovered that Concepcion is a delight to work with because of her dedication, passion, humility and being easy to get along with.
Anderson plays the character of a barrio doctor, Tupe, in “Init Sa Magdamag,” who was asked to be the sperm donor of a couple, played by Concepcion and JM de Guzman.
The show will have its pilot episode on April 17 on the iWantTFC app and website, and on WeTV iflix. By April 19, it will be showing on free TV via TV5 and A2Z channels, and on digital TV box via ABS-CBN TVplus. JB
