Ian Veneracion is open to working with any leading lady chosen by his network, ABS-CBN, for his next acting project.
“Alam mo naman tayo, pagdating sa trabaho very professional. Sa akin kung sino yung pinakabagay sa certain role,” he explained at the press con last April 6 for his upcoming concert titled Ian In 3 Acts.
Ian was paired with Jodi Sta. Maria in the 2015 teleserye Pangako Sa ‘Yo and with Bea Alonzo in last year’s A Love To Last.
His team-up with the two actresses have been effective.
IS SHARON CUNETA NEXT? The 43-year-old actor refused to divulge the name of the actress he will work with in his next project.
He was asked if it will be Sharon Cuneta.
“I have no idea, but that would be awesome,” he answered.
Ian disclosed that he and the Megastar have joked about the possibility of working with each other in the future.
“Nagdyo-joke-joke kami, nagbibiruan lang kami. Sinasabi niya isang beses, for example, ‘Pumayat na ‘ko, pwede na akong leading lady mo.’ ‘Sobra ka naman,’ sabi ko. ‘I’m not worthy.’
“So we’re joking about it.
“Maybe someday, I hope.
“She’s someone that I highly respect and someone I would definitely want to work with in a movie.”
SINGING CAREER. Ian is temporarily setting aside his acting career to showcase his musical side.
The Kapamilya actor will hold a concert titled Ian In 3 Acts at the Waterfront Cebu Hotel, Grand Pacific Ballroom in Cebu this April 21.
He explained that he has been rehearsing for months for this project because he does not want it half-baked.
“Iba ‘to because it’s not something I'm used to,” he explained.
“The camera I’m used to, pero singing in front of so many people, na live, it’s something I’m not used to.
“Pero because I’m an actor, my mga strategies na ko with myself of how to deal with it para di ka kabahan.
“Mental preparation as an actor will also work onstage.”
