JC De Vera Talks About What It's Like To Work With His "The Legal Wife" Co-StarsJC de Vera said it was an amazing experience for him to work with Angel Locsin, Maja Salvador and Jericho Rosales for the top-rating teleserye "The Legal Wife." It was also surreal for him to be part of a series that was always top-trending on social networks and media surveys.
Because they were taping very closely to the airing day, JC said there were a lot of times the four of them were together for extended periods of time. They had to work until the wee hours of the morning that he was able to get close to them in different levels.
He has worked with Angel 10 years ago when they were still both in GMA-7. Angel was different back then, JC said. Now, she is more "cowboy" and acts like one of the boys.
When it comes to Maja, JC said they call her "pulis" because she was always bubbly and would usually cajole them (although not in an annoying way). For example, JC would be sleeping inside his car, Maja would come and knock on his window until he wakes up.
So the running joke was, every time Maja would arrive, they would tell "O ayan na ang pulis."
"Masaya naman na may gano’n sa set, kasi nga, nabubuhayan ang mga tao. ‘Tsaka, yung pagkakulit niya, ‘di annoying. Kahit na kulitin ka niya buong araw, ’di ka maiirita sa kanya."
As for Echo (Jericho's nickname), JC said he never thought he will get along well with him since he was the new one in the group. But Echo has been very accommodating with him. He was even the one to always ask JC to share stories and hang out with them.
"And then, si Echo, ‘di ko alam na makakasundo ko siya. Kasi, sobrang bait pala niya. Parang hindi marunong gumawa ng mali sa kapwa… Ganoon siya, e, mabait siya. Mapipilit ka niyang magsalita, e, na hindi offensive."
"Di ba kasi, bago ako, e. Ako yung bago sa grupo. So, isa si Echo sa talagang pinipilit akong magsalita, magkuwento. Talagang siya pa yung lalapit."
They were like a family in the set, JC said, so he will surely miss the time they spent together.
