“Dugong Buhay” lead actor Ejay Falcon admits having a long-time crush on Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo.
The shy young action star was at first hesitant to talk to the press about this. But he later admitted that he started admiring Sarah even before he joined the reality TV competition “Pinoy Big Brother.”
“Bago pa ako mag-artista, crush ko na talaga siya. Lagi kasing sinasabi na ang daming nanggagamit sa kanya (that’s why I don’t talk about her). Siguro ganoon ako magkacrush, hindi nawawala. Kapag iyon, iyon talaga. Kapag ako tinatanong, siya talaga yung sinasabi ko,” Ejay told reporters on the set of “Dugong Buhay” on Friday, August 2.
The conservative type
What does he like about Sarah?
“Siguro yung pagiging conservative niya. Mas gusto ko yung mga babae na medyo manang, mahinhin, conservative.”
Ejay admitted that he and Sarah don't know each other personally because they only get to see each other in the Sunday noontime variety show “ASAP.” The two haven’t done any project together yet.
But he is in no hurry to get to know Sarah personally because he believes in perfect timing.
“Naniniwala ako ako sa right time, tamang panahon, tamang lugar. Hindi mo naman pwedeng madaliin. Ang hirap kapag padalos-dalos ka. Siguro kung pagtatagpuin kami. Hinihintay ko lang siguro kung talagang darating yung time na iyon.”
Ejay is not afraid of Sarah’s parents, Mommy Divine and Daddy Delfin, who are known to be very protective of their daughter
“Kapag wala ka namang gagawing masama or hindi masama ang intention mo, hindi ka naman dapat matakot.”
Ejay also dreams of doing an action film with Sarah.
“Nag-iimagine ako ng action film with Sarah G. na parang “Maging Sino Ka Man.”
Ejay admits he felt bad when he gave up his curly locks and shaving his head for the role of Victor in “Dugong Buhay.”
“Lahat gagawin ko para sa role na ito. Medyo naiiyak ako kasi ang tagal kong kasama ang buhok na iyon. Nasanay ako na ganoon, so nung ginugupitan ako, nanginginig ako. Nininerbyos tapos naiiyak ako. Bawat gupit sa buhok, parang may tama sa puso.”
Ejay is flattered that his director, Toto Natividad and co-stars have praised him for his acting in the series.
“Dati pinapanuod ko lang, ngayon nakagawa na ako. So, kung papipiliin ako, action talaga yung gusto kong gawin. Sa dinami-dami namin sa Star Magic, masaya ako na ako yung napagbigyan ngayon ng pagkakataon na gumawa ng action.”
