JC goes '5Star'
Ver Paulino (The Philippine Star) - June 12, 2010 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - JC de Vera transformed from boy-next-door to a serious actor after he appeared in his former station drama shows Pasan Ko ang Daigdig, Babangon Ako’t Dudurugin Kita, La Lola, Obra and Panday Kids. This month, JC is in the spotlight on TV 5, his new home network as he is featured in the primetime drama anthology, 5Star Specials, which showcases TV5 talents in roles we have never seen them play before.

JC talks to The STAR in this exclusive interview:

On his new home TV5: “Actually sobrang saya ako, very warm talaga ang pag welcome at inaalagaan talaga nila ako dito, from MVP (Manny V. Pangilinan) down to director, staff and crew, masasabi ko na very respectful sila.”

On being TV5’s Primetime Prince: “Ah very pressured, sobrang kinakabahan ako sa title na yun na binigay nila sa kin. For me, masyado syang mabigat, pero ini-enjoy ko na lang yon at malaki yung naitutulong ng title na yon para lalo akong ma-challenge.”

On his acting influences: “Ever since, it’s Christopher de Leon. He can do drama, action, comedy. He’s a very versatile actor. He is my inspiration. Sa action, si Binoe (Robin Padilla) For me, he is a well-rounded action star.”

On TV hosting: “Singing live and hosting eh first time ko lang gawin sa PO5. Well, ito yung sinasabi ko na opportunities I must not ignore when they’re given to me. You have to study them and adjust if need be”

On his dream house: “I bought a piece of land in Quezon City, where I will build a house in three years.
