Jake Cuenca says playing one of Ramon Revilla Sr.'s action-fantasy roles is a dream come true. "Pangarap ko mula noong bata pa ako ang makaganap ng ganitong roles," he said. "Mahirap mapantayan ang appeal sa masa ni Ramon Sr., pero ang pagkatiwala ng ganitong pagsubok ay challenge na mahirap tanggihan, lalo sa phase na ito ng career ko."


If there's one hot male Kapamilya star, it's none other than Jake Cuenca. Obvious naman na inaalagaan siya nang husto ng ABS-CBN. Dahil bilang na rin ang mga araw sa ere ng Tayong Dalawa, agad ay may follow-up ito. Isang kakaibang afternoon teleserye for Jake na magpapalapit sa kanya nang todo sa masa, lalo sa mga batang tagasubaybay niya.

Si Jake ang napisil para gumanap na "Elias Paniki" sa bagong konsepto sa primetime teleserye, ang Agimat... Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla. Sa showcase na ito ng apat na natatanging collections ng mga lumang pelikula ni Ramon, Sr., ang iba pang itatampok ay sina Gerald Anderson ("Tiagong Akyat"), Coco Martin ("Tonyong Bayawak") at Jolo Revilla ("Pepeng Agimat").

"Just to be included as one of the major stars of this showcase, malaking karangalan na sa akin," sabi pa ni Jake. "Hindi ko naman naabutan ang panahon ng kasikatan ni Ramon Sr., pero very much aware ako sa contributions niya sa local movies, pati na ng pagiging big star niya, na up to now, pinapahalagahan pa rin ng marami.

"Yun ang dahilan kung bakit binibigyan din ito ng importansya ng ABS-CBN, and just being a part of this makes me proud and happy," patuloy niya.

Sa kanila nina Coco at Gerald, lumalabas na parang premyo ito for their jobs well done sa top-rating Tayong Dalawa. Na-prove na nila ang kapasidad nila sa drama at action, heto at mukhang mas maiibigan ng publiko ang mapanood sila sa action-fantasy.


"Pangarap ko mula noong bata pa ako ang makaganap ng ganitong roles," sabi ni Jake. "Natutuwa nga ako dahil nang mag-artista ako, I was given this opportunity by ABS-CBN, sa Palos pa lang. Mahirap mapantayan ang appeal sa masa ni Ramon Sr. pero ang pagkatiwala ng ganitong pagsubok ay challenge na mahirap tanggihan, lalo sa phase na ito ng career ko."

FRIENDS FOR NOW. Well-focused si Jake sa career niya. Naririyan ang pagli-link sa kanya sa iba't ibang babae sa showbiz, like Roxanne Guinoo, Bea Alonzo and most recently, Melissa Ricks. But, obviously, he has learned his lesson.

"Bumabalik lang sa akin ang magandang takbo ng career ko dahil mas binibigyan ko ito ng panahon. Yung mga balita tungkol sa amin ni Melissa, I must admit na may pagtingin naman talaga ako sa kanya, pero nagkakaintindihan kami sa point na pare-pareho kasi kaming may career na dapat tutukan.

"Nakatutulong na siya ang inspirasyon ko, kasi, maganda ang epekto sa akin. Ganoon din sa kanya. Mas okey sa amin na ganitong magkaibigan kami at nagkakatulungan, kaysa naman magseryoso sa relasyon at makaapekto pa sa diskarte namin sa career," pagtatapat ni Jake.

Hindi rin si Jake ang tipong patol nang patol sa mga kontrobersya. Nilalapitan siya ng mga intriga, katulad ng bad-breath issue with Cristine Reyes, pero nginingitian na lang ito ng aktor.

"Nothing can affect me, lalo na kung alam kong hindi naman totoo," natatawa siya. "Ayokong pumatol dahil hindi ko naman sigurado kung nagsalita talaga si Cristine ng ganoon. Kung nagsalita man siya, balewala rin, kasi, alam kong hindi totoo.

"Puwedeng kapag nagkita kami, maitanong ko sa kanya yun, but I won't go out of my way para kausapin siya dahil lang sa isyung yun."

OLD ISSUES. "May ibang tao naman ang makapagsasabi na hindi totoo yun. Very particular ako about personal hygiene. Bilang artista, naniniwala akong unang-una ito sa dapat binibigyan ng atensiyon, at never naman akong naging baboy sa katawan," natatawa na lang si Jake.

Katulad na lang ni Shaina Magdayao na kapareha niya sa Star Cinema movie na Villa Estrella, tahasan nitong sinabi na may mga eksenang kunwa'y intimate sila ni Jake sa pelikula, pero wala naman daw itong naamoy na hindi niya gusto.

"I don't need to comment pa," sabi ni Jake. "Thank you naman kay Shaina, kasi, alam niya, hindi ako marumi sa katawan. Lalo na sa hininga, na nakakahiya kung may love scene o may eksena na you have to be close to each other, conscious naman din kasi ako."

Basta, ang mga isyung ito ay luma na para sa kanya, the same way na yung pamamaril sa sasakyan niya ay hindi na niya iniintindi pa.

"Nag-iingat din ako. I don't just go out without a bodyguard. Kailangan ko na, lalo't alam ko rin na mayrong may masamang intensyon sa akin na hindi ko kilala.

"Mahirap kasing mag-pinpoint ng kung sino-sino, pero may investigators to do that job for me. Wala akong atraso kahit kanino kaya hindi ako masyadong nag-iisip tungkol d'yan," pagwawakas ni Jake.
