MANILA – The long wait is almost over for the fans of Gerald Anderson who miss seeing him regularly on television.
The actor’s last series was “Budoy” which ended in the first quarter of 2012. Since then, Anderson’s fans have been waiting for him to star in another teleserye.
Thus, Anderson said he is extremely excited now that his supporters will finally catch a glimpse of what he has been working on in the past months.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Anderson said his upcoming series “Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin” will soon hit the television screens as part of ABS-CBN’s primetime lineup.
“Sobrang iba siya sa lahat ng ginawa ko ever sa TV. it’s a great project after ‘Budoy’ kasi sobrang layo ng mga characters namin,” he said.
The TV series was originally scheduled to air last summer but due to undisclosed reasons, the release of the series was delayed.
Asked what caused the postponement, the 24-year-old actor said: “Kung napanood niyo po ang trailer, nakita niyo na talagang pinaghirapan po naming lahat iyon, hindi lang mga artista kundi pati director at staff. Talagang matagal 'yung pagbuo ng project.”
Anderson said they didn't want to release the series half-baked.
“Yung ganung klaseng project takes time. Ayaw din namin madaliin. Gusto namin kapag napanood niyo, magustuhan niyo. Ang bawat artista doon, the best ang binigay namin,” he said.
In the soap directed by Jerome Pobocan and Trina Dayrit, Anderson portrays Miguel Dizon, a rich young man who is imprisoned after being accused of rape and frustrated homicide by a woman he meets at a bar, Carla (Diana Zubiri).
Miguel's mother Zenaida (Dawn Zulueta) is seen making desperate pleas for her son's freedom.
"Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin" was among the several new TV series launched Tuesday night at ABS-CBN's trade event.
