Derek Ramsay Reveals That He Almost Boarded Asiana Plane That Recently CrashedLast week, an Asiana Airlines flight crashed prior to its landing at the San Francisco Airport. The jet came from Seoul and was destined to the US. Before it landed at the airport, it skidded out of control and caught fire. At least three passengers were killed and over 180 others were injured.
Derek Ramsay has recently revealed that he almost boarded that same flight. That time, he and his manager Jojie Dingcong had to go to San Francisco to receive an award from an organization of Filipino migrants. Fortunately, Dingcong insisted that they fly via Philippine Airlines.
The Kapatid actor is thankful for his manager’s instinct. He could not imagine what could have happened to him if they boarded that plane. Anyway, Ramsay disclosed that he still does not fright taking flights. He implied that he would still go abroad if there is a need for him to do so.
Ramsay is currently busy taping for his latest TV5 series ‘Undercover.’ He stars in the show with Jasmine Curtis and Arci Muñoz. He is also set to do a new movie under Viva Films. He is excited to working with Cristine Reyes and Heart Evangelista in the new project.
He remains as one of the busiest actors in TV5. Just last May, his recent primetime series ‘Kidlat’ ended. There are also several other projects that are on the pipeline for him. As for movies, he is scheduled to star in several more from Viva Films.
Ramsay was involved in a controversial network transfer when he moved to TV5 from ABS-CBN early this year. It was a surprise move since he had been getting plum roles in the Kapamilya network. Insiders claim he was offered a hefty sum to sign a TV5 contract.
The network transfer also coincided with news that he broke up with seven-year girlfriend Angelica Panganiban. Since then, Panganiban has seized all opportunities to bad mouth him especially through social networking sites. But Ramsay remained quiet.
Controversies kept on hounding Ramsay, indicating that he remains as a hot commodity these days. Aside from his rift with Panganiban, he was also accused of calling Sam Milby ‘gay’ just to impress fellow TV5 star Danita Paner.
Last week, he came out to admit that he has a non-showbiz girlfriend. That admission dispelled rumors romantically linking him to several showbiz celebrities, including Cristine Reyes and Nadine Samonte. At the same time, he disclosed that there is a possibility for him to do a movie with Marian Rivera.
