Gerald Anderson is the main actor in the show “Budoy”. “Napakalaking stepping stone niyan para sa akin dahil mas nakilala na ako as an actor, instead of a leading man or part of a love team. I’m just really happy”, he said.
He admits that he felt pressured in playing the role as Budoy and doing an “advocacy-serye”, which he considers his breakthrough performance. He’s happy also because the TV drama helped him to improve his craft. “Naramdaman ko yung improvement pero mas marami at malayo pa ang gusto kong marating. I can’t call myself a good actor kasi ang dami ko pang gustong gawin”, he said.
The TV show “Budoys” will be end on Friday, March 8. “Mixed emotions kasi patapos na pero sobrang masaya rin kasi alam po namin na na-meet na namin yung goal na gusto naming mangyari bago mastart yung show, which is magbigay ng inspirasyon sa mga tao”, Gerald said.

Sarah in his life
His friendship with Sarah Geronimo has become talk of the town these past weeks. Gerald surprised Sarah again in her Show “Sarah G Live” last Sunday, March 4, the pop princess sang “All of my Life” while they held hands.
Gerald said, “Na-surprise po talaga siya. Hindi po niya talaga alam ‘yon. Nag-decide ako na mag-surprise ako the day itself. Sobrang special ng Sunday na iyon for me”.
Gerald denied that they have a relationship. “Friends kami. Kasi masaya naman ako kung ano yung nararamdaman ko para sa kanya kapag magkasama kami. Okay na iyon. Hindi naman kailangang lagyan ng label. At least hindi promo-promo dahil wala naman kaming dapat i-promote. Pero we’re just enjoying each other’s company. Like I said, kung ano ‘yung inspirasyon or feelings na binibigay niya sa akin, ie-enjoy ko muna iyon,”Gerald said.
Gerald was happy right now the way Sarah inspires him and they want to enjoy the friendship they have now. They don’t want to rush everything between them.“Hindi naman kami nagmamadali. Katulad nga po ng sinabi ko, kung friendship lang ang makukuha ko, okay na okay sa akin iyon. Sapat na po ‘yung inspirasyon na binibigay niya sa akin. I’m very happy and I’m happy sa mga nangyayari sa kanya,” Gerald shared.
