Ervic Vijandre is a self-confessed bookworm

Athlete turned actor Ervic Vijandre says he likes reading books, "...hindi nga lang ako ma-novel, pero about sports, history ng games, sa mga records, dun ako interesado."


It was not initially part of his plan, but Ervic Vijandre now finds himself pursuing more comedy-sitcom projects.

The Kapuso actor currently has two shows on primetime: Poor Senorita and A1 Ko Sa 'Yo.

So far, since he signed a full-management contract with GMA Artist Center, he's been happy.

“Career-wise, sobrang blessed ako,” Ervic recently told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the Book & Borders Cafe, Tuscany, Upper McKinley, The Fort.

“Nang mag-sign ako sa Artist Center, tinanong nila kung ano ang gusto ko.

“Kasi, given na bibigyan nila ako ng role, puro kontrabida.

“Aside from that, ano ba sana ang isang gusto ko?

“Gusto ko sanang ma-try ang sarili ko na pang-sitcom.

“Ang laki ko, e.

“So feeling ko, yung laki ko, magagamit ko as awkward.

“Kasi sa totoong buhay, makulit din ako, lalo na sa mga kapatid ko.

“Kaya alam nilang may ganun akong side. Kaya sabi nga nila, 'Bakit hindi mo kaya pagkakitaan ‘yang kakulitan mo?'”

BOOKWORM. Beyond TV, Ervic was launched as one of Book & Borders Cafe's celebrity endorsers.

The other two are Kapamilya host Karylle and Kapuso actor Ben Alves.

He lives in Taguig so, “Siguro isang reason din yun kung bakit nila ko kinuha dahil alam nilang nandito ko, mapapasyalan ko. Kaya halos every week, nandito talaga ako.”

He has another business venture in the area: a gym.

But unknown to many, the cager is a bookworm.

“Actually, lumaki ako na outdoor type talaga ako.

“Pero may side ako na ganito.

“In terms of reading, hindi nga lang ako ma-novel, pero about sports, history ng games, sa mga records, dun ako interesado.

“At saka dati, kapag nasa coffee shop ako, ang tinitingnan ko rin, food.

“Kasi yung iba, ang ino-offer nila, pastries lang.

“Dito lahat, e.”
