After the phenomenon success of “Dream Dad” bidding farewell this week, Dreamscape Entertainment Television is ready to show another high caliber drama series titled “Nathaniel.” It is a story of an angel who came to earth to fulfill one mission, to bring back the faith and goodness to human being.
During the presscon, the cast discussed about angels and life. According to them, doing “Nathaniel” inspires them to be a good person and to be an angel in a little way to others.
Gerald Anderson who plays as Paul Laxamana said that he is very excited to do the teleserye because he believes that the story was good.
Every show, dapat iba ung binibigay mo, ung level ng acting dapat iba, ung iba talaga, ibang atake, ibang character kaya dapat iba sa lahat kaya for me dapat mas at grabe pa ung ibibigay ko, ung may improvement sa bawat show, Gerald said.
I believed that most of us have their own angels. Pamilya talaga ang angels eh, pero kung personal, selfish ba pag sinabi kong ako, sarili ko. Ako mismo, siguro naging angel sa pamilya ko, sa maglang ko, sa kapatid ko at sa mga taong mahal ko, naging angel ako sa kanila, he added.
Gerald said he is not yet ready. In life, he said the character is not easy, It’s tough and it’s because at some point he needs to think of every situation.
Sa show kasi, we were young couple kaya di pa ready kaya may times na di okay. It depends on what kind of love you have. Sa show, unstable at walang work si Paul kaya mahirap po, Gerald recalls.
Gerald answered the question during some personal interviews and he said, he is happy spending more time with his brother Ken.
Siya yung pinakamakulit eh. Hindi ko nga alam sa kanya. Yung bisaya video ako yun. Wala lang, that was actually for Tang kasi gumawa sila ng juice for Mindanao so siyempre Bisaya kami so we did it in Bisaya. Meron pa kaming gagawin,” he said.
But despite the fact that he is very busy doing Nathaniel, he is also in the midst of asking the press his privacy with regards to his relationship with Maja Salvador. Gerald said they are doing good and prefer to keep specific details in private.
Okay naman. Masaya naman. It’s okay. I think in a relationship maraming ups and downs and you have to learn from it and the experience makes you a better person. It should make you a better person. Kung hindi, you’re in a wrong relationship, he explained.
Meanwhile, the whole cast are excited for the teleserye.
Completing the star-studded cast of “Nathaniel” are Pokwang, Isabelle Daza, Benjie Paras, Jayson Gainza, Ogie Diaz, Sharlene San Pedro, Jairus Aquino, Yesha Camile, David Chua, Young JV, Fourth and Fifth Pagotan, and Coney Reyes. It directed by Darnel Joy Villaflor and Francis Pasion. Nathaniel’s official soundtrack “Lupa Man ay Langit na Rin” is recorded and performed by King of Teleserye themesongs Erik Santos and airs on April 20, 2015 right after TV Patrol replacing Dream dad on Prime time bida.
ABS-CBN Kapamilya’s newest actress Isabelle Daza is officially joining Nathaniel in Primetime Bida. Nathaniel will be replacing Dream Dad soon.
Isabelle Daza is ready to take her first serious drama series alongside with Gerald Anderson and Shaina Magdayao with Marco Masa as Nathaniel.
Nathaniel is a story of an angel sent back to earth to fulfill one mission to restore man’s faith in God and remind them the goodness that they can find in everyone’s heart. It is an inspiring story. Isabelle Daza is very excited to portray her role as a lawyer who will fall in love with Gerald Anderson.
I’m excited to be part of this teleserye because my co-actors have such great talent and I don’t want to be left behind. I want to be better and to work harder to prove myself as an actress, said Isabelle.
Isabelle added TV viewers should watch this beautiful and inspiring story of ‘Nathaniel’ because kids and families will learn a lot of valuable life lessons in the series.
However, during the blogger’s conference held last Tuesday, she said that she hopes to work with good actresses and actors of Kapamilya like Piolo Pascual and proud to be a Kapamilya now.
She also added that her dream role involves as a woman a man loves and she is also looking forward to do crazy acting like a bipolar or a psycho.
According to her, she gets good advices from her mom, Gloria Diaz, to really become a good actress. She joked that she is receiving a lot of unsolicited advice from her mom like she have to do her best and she needs to leave a mark in her career in the industry.
She does believe in angels, like Nathaniel because from was a childhood experience when she was out biking in a farm and she lost control. Instead of hitting a tree, she believed she was saved by an angel because she came out fine, bruises-free.
She had her 5-day intensive acting workshop so she invested her time and a lot of effort to make sure she can act and give justice to her role as the “kontrabida” role in Nathaniel.
Belle told during the conference that she also believes in angel like Nathaniel because of personal experience when she had an accident when she was young while she was out biking in a farm and she lost control. Instead of hitting a tree, she came out fine, bruises-free and believed it was because of an angel.
She was also told that she needs to express her emotions through her eyes and said that when she did he MMK stint, she lost her emotions and wasn’t able to act properly and out of fears because of one director who shouted at her, she was able to deliver her lines so spontaneous.
She also wants to explore her talent by doing ASAP stints and hosting.
Meanwhile, she is ready to portray different characters given to her.
Nathaniel will be her first drama teleserye and will replace Dream Dad in ABS-CBN’s Primetime bida this April.
