JC Santos admits having separation anxiety after doing Till I Met You. "Namimiss ko si James, Nadine, Robert Sena, Miss Pokwang, Carmina Villaroel. Noong Lunes nga, nagising ako ng 5 am kasi alam ko may call time ako ng 7. Tapos na-realize ko, wala na palang taping, tapos na." The series, where he plays the gay role of Ali, will air its finale episode tomorrow, January 20.



Aside from James Reid and Nadine Lustre, one actor who made his mark on Till I Met You is JC Santos, who was given a major role for a TV series for the first time.

Now that the show will air its finale episode tomorrow, January 20, JC can't help but have separation anxiety.

"Separation anxiety. Ang dami naming pinagdaanan, e," said the actor who plays Ali on the ABS-CBN show.

"Nalulungkot ako, namimiss ko si James, Nadine, Robert Sena, Miss Pokwang, Carmina Villaroel.

"Noong Lunes nga, nagising ako ng 5 am kasi alam ko may call time ako ng 7.

"Tapos na-realize ko, wala na palang taping, tapos na. Natapos ko na noong Friday yung akin, sila Saturday, last day.

"Hay, I miss working, but we have to move on. It's good at least meron akong charge na it's time to reinvent myself, kailangan ko na mag work out ulit kasi tumaba na ako.

"Nawala na yung mga abs, e! Ang dami ko nang kailangang paghandaan, e," he said in jest.

While JC admitted that Till I Met You has changed a lot in his life, he doesn't let popularity get into his head.

"I think it's work talaga. I love the work and I have to work.

"So far, yung idea ng sikat, hindi siya pumapasok, hindi siya big deal.

"Okay, it's part, perks siya ng work ko, e. Siyempre good attention, [pero] ang pinaka masaya sa akin, nagkaroon ako ng trabaho na maganda."

In fact, JC didn't realize the impact of his character Ali since he has been too focused on work for the past few months.

He narrated, "Hindi ko kasi napapansin, e, dahil six months straight di ako nakapagpahinga.

"Di ako nakapagbakasyon kasi nasa loob lang ako ng taping lagi tas matutulog lang."

JC also recalled the times when people only used to watch him in his indie films.

"I'm happy with the fans na na-appreciate yung kwento."

"Dati kasi, kailangan [lang] ako panuorin kasi kailangan gumawa ng reflection paper.

"Ngayon, napapanuod ako ng Pilipinas. Salamat at nabigyan ako ng opportunity na maipakita yung kaya kong gawin."

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had an interview with JC after the press conference of Sakaling Hindi Makarating last July 17 at Fisher Mall, Quezon City.


ENZO PINEDA. In Till I Met You where he plays a gay character, JC was paired with other actors.

One of the most recent partners that he had was Enzo Pineda, who made his Kapamilya debut on the show.

JC said about working with the former GMA-7 actor, "Si Enzo, siguro dalawang taping days lang, close na close na kami.

"Masaya kami on and off screen. Bros kami, di kami nagkakailangan.

"Siyempre nung una, okay paano ito tatantiyahin. Eventually, nag let go din, e, hanggang sa nagbibigayan na lang ng walang effort.

"As an actor naman, ganoon pinakamasarap, yung magaling din yung kasama mo."

What should viewers look forward to in Till I Met You's finale episode this Friday, January 20?

JC hinted, "Naku, may surprise na mangyayari kay Ali.

"At hindi ko sasabihin kung sino, pero may kasalang magaganap."


WHAT'S NEXT FOR JC? After Till I Met You, JC revealed that he will do a movie with Kim Chiu and Enzo.

He revealed, "I think the working title is Ghost Bride, it's gonna be directed by Chito Rono.

"I'm gonna be acting with Kim Chiu and Enzo Pineda. I think magkakaroon ako din ako sa Viva and an indie film."

JC is also busy promoting the mainstream release of his indie film Sakaling Hindi Makarating, which will be screened in cinemas nationwide starting February 1.
