Derek Ramsay still could not believe that at his age he would be doing a Wattapad series, which is commonly done by young actors.
“Awkward,” Derek laughed when PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked him about the two-week TV series he's doing with Jasmine Curtis Smith, which is titled “Unwanted Girlfriend.”
The 38-year-old actor made a request for production: “Sabi ko, wala kaming kissing scene ni Jasmine, ha, kasi parang incest 'yon.
“She's like my little sister so, pwedeng puro hug lang. Mahirap.”

By doing the weekly TV adaptation of online Wattapad novels, Derek realized, “Ang hirap, nagpapabagets ako doon.
“E, naitatawid naman daw namin. Tingnan na lang natin.
“Ang hirap ng Wattpad. Nag-ahit nga ako para mas magmukhang bata.
“Two weeks pa kami, sa amin pa ang pinakabata.”
Wattpad Presents: Unwanted Girlfriend will air from July 20 to July 31 on TV5.
Does Derek see himself doing another Wattpad project?
He laughed, then reiterated, “Tingnan na lang natin. Mahirap, e. Mahusay na artista si Jasmine, pero talagang I look at her like my young sister. Weird.
Even though we've both been lacking rest the past week due to work every single day (him, the past 2 weeks), we've managed to tape 10 episodes in 4 days for Wattpad Presents: Unwanted Girlfriend. Ÿ˜Â mejo weird and awkward being paired up with Kuya, pero at least masaya kasama! Naaaaks. Pero weird parin @ramsayderek11 Ÿ˜‚ #Wattpad #MejoIncest LOL
