Previously it was reported that eight actresses auditioned to be his leading lady. In the end Barbie Imperial got to be paired with the returning JM de Guzman. In an a report by PEP, here’s the first impression of JM with the young actress
“First time kaming nag-meet nung screentest. Makulit na cute. Makulit at masarap ka-eksena,” said JM, during the press conference of Araw Gabi.
As for Barbie, she admits that the actor was a bit serious and doesn’t smile a lot.
“Nakuha ko naman po ang kiliti niya. Kumbaga sa taping, minsan lang siya mag-smile. Nagpapansinan naman kami pero si JM, seryoso siyang tao.”
The actor also reveals that he was offered a movie from Star Cinema but chose to focus his energies on the series.
“Nung in-offer sa akin, may in-offer na movie from Star [Cinema] and ito [Araw Gabi]. Pero hindi pa po ako pinapayagan ng rehab na gumawa ng sabay.
“Parang pinapili…Pinag-usapan namin kung ano ang uunahin ko. Para dahan-dahan, para hindi ako mabigla.”
Back in 2014, JM admitted that he was suffering from drug addiction. In 2015, the actor experienced a relapse and needed further treatment, so he had to re-enter a rehabilitation center.
Finally last year, the Therapeutic Community program cleared JM and gave him a certificate indicating that he has been living substance-free for two years.
Now that he’s coming back in the entertainment industry for good, JM pledged: “Sa ngayon talagang pagtatrabahuhan ko po, sineseryoso ko siya.
“Unlike before na binitawan ko. Ngayon, nakadikit ako sa support group.”
