GMA-7 actor Kristoffer Martin admits that there were times when the idea of moving back to ABS-CBN crossed his mind.
However, he explained, "If ever siguro papasok yun, tatawid lang."
In July 2017, Kristoffer posted a cryptic message on his Twitter account about his "next option."
He also wrote, "Hindi sa nagmamadali pero sayang oras. Sayang panahon. Sayang talent."
This started rumors of him leaving GMA-7 and returning to ABS-CBN, which was his first mother network.
These speculations were triggered when he had dinner with the executives and production team of Little Big Superstar, the contest he joined in the Kapamilya network in 2007.
Kristoffer later ended the rumors and declared that he won't be transferring to ABS-CBN.
He remains loyal to GMA-7 and is now part of Victor Magtanggol as a kontrabida.
Talking about his rumored network transfer, he elaborated, "Wala naman akong planong lumipat talaga. Kasi wala, galing rin naman ako sa kabila, e.
"Iba yung alaga rin nila kasi dito so kung tatawid man yun [paglipat], dadaan lang yun.
"Hindi ko rin naman siya inopen, e. Siguro haka-haka lang ng mga tao kasi hindi ko alam, hindi rin naman galing sa akin na naisipan kong lumipat."
"Masasabi mo kasi sa sarili mo kung saan ka belong. Kumbaga hindi ko pa nakikita yung sarili sa kabila. Hindi pa."
Despite staying loyal to the Kapuso network, Kristoffer has kept close ties with the people he worked with in ABS-CBN, which explains the reunion dinner last August 2017.
He said, "Oo naman, nakakausap ko pa rin sila."
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other entertainment reporters spoke to Kristoffer during the media launch of Victor Magtanggol last July 23 at the GMA Network Studio Complex.
KONTRABIDA ROLE. For the first time, Kristoffer will play a kontrabida role in Victor Magtanggol.
His character is Lance, the overprotective stepbrother of Gwen (Janine Gutierrez) who harbors secret feelings for her.
For this reason, Lance is mean towards Victor (Alden Richards), the man who will get involved with Gwen.
According to Kristoffer, it is his personal request to play a villain in his next series, although he has been the lead actor in most of his teleseryes.
He reasoned out, "Gusto ko talaga ikutin lahat, lahat lahat ng pwedeng ikutin.
"Hindi talaga ako namimili. Choice ko rin 'to, e.
"Tapos Alden pa. Isa siya sa mga unang nagsabi sa 'kin na kasama ako dito."
Behind the camera, Kristoffer and Alden are known to be good friends.
Is Kristoffer ready in case Alden's fans would bash him because of his kontrabida character?
"Okay lang, siyempre pag ganun, alam naman ng iba.
"Hindi ko naman papatulan pag referring sa story, hindi mo na papatulan kasi galit sila sa character, hindi naman sa 'yo."
Victor Magtanggol is set to air starting July 30 on GMA Telebabad.
