Okay lang kay Gil Cuerva kung nagsimula siyang bida sa My Love From The Star noong 2017 at ngayon ay support siya nina Yasmien Kurdi, Bea Binene, at Gabbi Garcia sa Beautiful Justice.

“Oh yeah, yeah, definitely! Siyempre, being lead is a good thing but mas priority ko talaga is to get work.

“If that means na parati akong support, I’ll do it! I’m looking at the bigger picture kasi.

“Yung bigger picture kasi for me is to get better, you only get better thru more experience, to having more shows, having more taping.

“So if right now, iyan yung mga ino-offer pa lang sa akin, I’ll take it.

"I’ll gladly take it, one hundred percent, one hundred twenty percent.

“As long as mabigyan lang ako ng chance to do better.”

Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Gil sa grand mediacon ng Beautiful Justice noong Martes, August 27, sa Le Revé Events and Party Place sa Quezon City.

BEYOND ACTING

Hindi sa pag-aartista lamang nais ni Gil na mag-excel.

Saad niya, “Eventually, gusto kong umabot sa point na I wanna do writing for movies, or writing for TV shows, writing scripts, or produce, maybe produce my own movie, produce my own film.”

Nais magsulat ni Gil.

“Actually, feeling ko ang problema sa akin is marami akong iniisip, hindi ko na nasusulat.

“So hopefully, in the future, when I get older, I get more experience, mabigyan ako ng chance to, maybe, I don’t know, write a short film, or write a movie.”

Marami siyang gustong gawin.

“I always look at the bigger picture. I don’t wanna limit myself sa ano.”

Ano ang ultimate goal ni Gil?

“That’s a good question. As an actor, I want to portray a role na may impact.

“Siyempre, sa ngayon, people remember me as Matteo," pagtukoy ni Gil sa kanyang karakter sa My Love From The Star.

"But I want to portray a character that people will remember so much na… hindi naman sa makakalimutan si Matteo pero parang people will say na, ‘Ah, siya si Matteo, pero siya rin si ganyan-ganyan, sa ganyan.’

“So, as an actor, that’s my goal.

"But my over-all goal sa showbiz, siguro I wanna have a huge part in a movie.

"When I say huge part, hindi as an actor. Whether as a scriptwriter, or whether as producer or whether as a director.

“If I reach that point, alam ko parang, ‘Wow! I’m given the complete freedom to create a story.’

"And at the end of the day, I see myself kasi as a story creator.

“When you’re the actor, you’re a character in the story, but I wanna be a storyteller, a story creator. I want to create a story.

“So iyan yung goal ko for myself.

“I wanna be able to create a story whether it’s a short film or a movie, or a teleserye. Iyan yung goal ko.”
