JC De Vera Is Pressured With "The Legal Wife" Co-StarsJC de Vera is excited for his new role in "The Legal Wife," the ABS-CBN teleserye starring Angel Locsin, Maja Salvador and Jericho Rosales. This is the first time the actor will be working with the rest of the cast.
JC said he has such high respect for Angel, an award-winning actress. Not only is "The Legal Wife" one of the most important teleseryes for ABS-CBN this year, but it will also serve as a stage for him in terms of honing his skills as an actor.
"Meron na akong magandang script, meron pa akong magagaling na directors and outstanding co-actors."
The only thing he needs to do is to really perform well, JC said, because he feels his directors--Rory Quintos and Dado Lumibao--have already done half of the work for him since they are "intelligent" directors.
Both Angel and JC came from the Kapuso network, but the actor said he never grew close to Angel because when he entered the showbiz industry, the actress is already a big-time star.
But ever since, he already admires Angel for the way she handled her career and of course, her innate and natural beauty. JC said he's very excited to work with Angel because it's easier to be in a scene with someone as skillful as her in acting.
JC admitted he feels pressured because he has to keep up with the other cast members. Since he's new in the network, he has to prove himself to his co-stars.
But even though he is feeling pressured, JC said he is motivated and inspired to work harder and be better at his craft. In "The Legal Wife," JC will play the role of Max Gonzales, who will fall in love with Angel's character, Monica Santiago de Villa.
He clarified that he and Angel will not exactly be a loveteam, wherein they will be surely paired again to each other in their next projects. When it comes to their lives out of "The Legal Wife," JC said he respects Angel's choices and Angel should do the same with him.
"Pero kapag sa show kailangan ay trabaho lang."
When it comes to Jericho, JC admitted he feels intimidated by all ABS-CBN artists because he knows they are all top-caliber actors and actresses.
Jericho, specifically, has such a huge passion for acting, so JC knows he will learn a lot from him. He has yet to shoot a scene with Jericho, but they were able to bond already on the set.
JC said all the artists he has worked with on ABS-CBN are professionals.
Of all the cast members, however, it is Maja who JC feels really comfortable with. "Siya ang unang naging kumportable talaga ako, since maganda ang kanyang personality. Nakaka-uplift talaga ng spirit pagdating sa taping."
Because of the way his co-stars are trying to make him feel welcome, JC said his confidence when it comes to the show is slowly increasing.
