Gerald Anderson is riding high on the success of his most recent movie My Perfect You. The romantic film, which also stars former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach, is a certified box office hit with more than P100 million in ticket sales.
My Perfect You is Gerald’s 17th film and for a change of pace, he is starting a new television show which will tackle a topic that is very close to his heart.
In an interview with MB Entertainment, held during the Skechers Street Move in Style fashion show, Gerald reveals that he is really looking forward to this new project. “Excited akong gawin because very timely siya saka tungkol sa bansa natin.”
“Tungkol ito sa mga pinagdaanan natin recently. Yung mga pinagdaanan ng mga lumalaban para sa bansa natin. So, ikukwento naman natin yung side nila. Tungkol sa pamilya nila. Mahirap din para sa (isang) pamilya na yung tatay mo hindi mo alam kung makakabalik pa siya kung saan man siya lumalaban. It’s a very inspirational soap.”
The 29-year-old actor also shares that he will spend the entire summer preparing for his latest project. “Magre-ready lang ako for the show kasi medyo maraming hinihingi physically and emotionally. Walang vacation. Kasi kakagaling ko lang din ng Greece nag-show ako dun, nag-extend ako, parang iyon na rin yung naging bakasyon ko.”
After leaving Greece, Gerald went to Paris with his father and a few friends for an extended vacation.
Unforgettable Paris adventure
Gerald spent four days in Paris together with his friends. It’s a dream vacation for Gerald since it’s his first time to see the famous Eiffel Tower and other well-known landmarks in Paris.
Mesmerized by the majestic beauty of the Parisian structure, Gerald admits that he went back several times while he was there just to see the tower.
“Kasi di ba parang bata palang tayo pangarap na natin na makita yun? Nung first day namin pinuntahan namin agad, hindi pa ako nakunteto. Pagbalik namin sa hotel nagsuot ako ng Skechers at tumakbo ako, (then) bumalik pa ako. Kasi ang sarap niyang tingnan.
“It was really amazing. Beautiful. Na-inlove ako sa city, ang dami kong natutunan,” tells Gerald.
