Thanks to advancements in technology, actor JC de Vera is still able to connect with his family even while in a lock-in taping.
De Vera was asked how he as a father adjusted to the lock-in taping for “La Vida Lena” during the show’s online conference last June 16. The actor plays Adrian Narciso in the series.
“It’s really hard na mahiwalay sa family lalo na baby pa ‘yung daughter ko. During lock-in, I make sure na meron talaga akong time for them kahit sa video call lang,” he said.
(It’s really hard to be separated from family more so since my daughter is still a baby. During lock-in, I make sure that I have time for them, even if through just video calls.)
The actor revealed that he communicates with his family before and after the day’s work. His costars and the staff already know that he usually does not leave his room anymore past 10 or 11 p.m. because of his video calls.
De Vera thus believes it’s really a challenge for actors like him to remain focused on work even while thinking of their distant families.
“Pero nagawan naman namin ng paraan. Mas masarap na experience ito. We learned a lot,” he said. (But we’re able to find solutions. It’s a good experience.)
“La Vida Lena” will air its continuation on June 28, 10:00 p.m. at the Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z Channel 11, TV5, iWantTFC and TFC. JB
