Actor JC de Vera regards his “The Goodbye Girl” co-star Angelica Panganiban as a constant source of inspiration and motivation.
In the TV series, de Vera plays Jeff who offered a book deal for Angelica Panganiban’s Yanna character.
“Of course, very blessed ako every time na nasasama ako sa mga projects na nandoon si Angge. Feeling ko talaga, every time I work with her, inspired ako and motivated,” the actor said during the online press conference for the series today, Jan. 31.
(Of course, I feel very blessed every time I join projects where Angelica is in the cast. I feel that every time I work with her, I am inspired and motivated.)
For the actor, this is the first time he is able to lavish Panganiban with praise after working with her in other projects in the past. He admires the actress’ versatility.
“I look up to her in terms of pagiging [veteran] niya sa acting. Kahit na anong genre iyan, eh, mapadrama, mapa-comedy, rom-com, any genre na ibinigay sa kanya, palaging natatapos niya ang project with flying colors,” he said
(I look up to her in terms of her being a veteran in acting. Whatever genre it is, drama, comedy, rom-com, or any genre that it is given to her, she always finishes the project with flying colors.)
The actor also expressed his curiosity if Panganiban gets nervous each time she plays a new role.
“Parang never at one point na nakita ko siya (na kinakabahan). Kinakabahan pa ba itong taong ito sa pagpo-portray niya ng iba’t ibang characters?” he asked.
(It’s like never at one point have I ever seen her nervous. Does this person still get nervous when she’s portraying different characters?)
De Vera marveled at Panganiban’s professionalism too, such that he manages to always learn something new from the actress.
“Meron akong napupulot na magandang tip or magandang way of attacking her character,” he said. “It inspires me a lot talaga. I look up to her.”
(I get to pick up a good tip or a good way of attacking character. It really inspires me a lot.) JB
