Ejay Falcon Wants To Prove His Mettle As An ActorEjay Falcon said he wants to try doing many different roles and characters, so he can prove his versatility as an actor. He specifically wants to try being in an action, drama, sexy and comedy roles.
He would even prefer if all of these genres can be combined to make one teleserye. He already did action series "Dugong Buhay" on ABS-CBN, but he wants to try something more ala Rudy Fernandez's "Baby Ama" and Cesar Montano's "Alyas: Waway."
He wanted to be like Hollywood's Hugh Jackman, who can do all these kinds of roles and still be taken seriously. It will also prove that he is really serious about being an actor if he can do all kinds of roles.
Ejay seemed to have an edge among actors today because he can do action roles really well. He is not sure if that is an edge but he is thankful to ABS-CBN for giving him that opportunity.
The actor said it's not always about the money, but also about performing well and accepting roles that are challenging for him.
He is also very happy with ABS-CBN and thankful for all the doors the network opened for him. Ejay is the big winner of the "Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus" in 2008.
He is set to do "Sa Ngalan Ng Ama" with Philip Salvador and Nash Aguas. Ejay will play Nash's father.
At first, he was hesitant to portray the role, but he immediately accepted it once he learned that he will be working with Philip. He shared that the actor has been helping and giving him tips when it comes to acting.
Nash also suits an action-themed movie, Ejay said, adding that the young actor really knows his craft well. He has been in the industry for long and he has already honed his skills, Ejay said of Nash.
Since he is an alumna of "Pinoy Big Brother," it cannot be helped that his opinion about the remaining housemates is asked. Ejay said he doesn't really watch the current edition, but all he can say is for the big winner not to be impatient once hs or she is in the outside world.
He shared that he did not have a project for a year after he was declared the big winner, so he just waited for the network to give him the right project. Ejay said he did workshops while waiting, so he will have something to fall back on when shooting his scenes.
Ejay also reminded the future big winner to be humble and to never forget his roots. Ejay, himself, was adopted by the husband of her mother, who had him with a foreigner.
He advised the current housemates to be true to themselves. They cannot hide their true selves, especially from Big Brother and the rest of the staff. They are the ones to see firsthand who's being true and who is just pretending.
When he was inside, he didn't even think about the text votes. What mattered to him was focusing on the tasks given. Ejay said that in fact, there were housemates who were not so nice inside the house, but they won second or first place.
The actor said people thought he was dumb inside the house, and that is because he never pretended to be intelligent. He was just himself.
In the end, Ejay said the most important thing is to be sincere. People can eventually see if you're sincere in the things you do and the way you interact with other people.
