Heâ€™s part of the recently concluded primetime series â€œAng Babaeng Hampaslupaâ€ topbilled by Alex Gonzaga, and now, Wendell is once again tapped to play one of the major characters in the upcoming dramserye entitled â€œThe Sisters.â€
â€œMy role here is very different dun sa una kong ginawa (the first project) I did for TV5. Mas may lalim yung gagampanang kong role kasi parang isa siya sa mga leading man eh (This has depth because Iâ€™m one of the leading man).â€
The actor is also very happy working with lead actress Nadine Samonte, who recently moved to the Kapatid Network.
â€œSheâ€™s still the same. Nagkasama kami dati sa â€˜Kung Mahawi Man Ang Ulapâ€™ and magaling parin talaga siyang umarte. Hindi naman ibibigay itong napakalaking project sa kanya kung hindi niya deserve eh (I worked with her in â€˜Kung Mahawi Man ang Ulapâ€™ and sheâ€™s still really good. This project wonâ€™t be given to her if she does not deserve it at all).â€
Aside from this new series, Wendell is also part of the Star Cinema movie starring Zanjoe Marudo, Toni Gonzaga and Eugene Domingo.
Wendell is happy that even though he works for the rival network, ABS-CBN still shows its interest in him in its movies.
â€œEven before naman nung nasa GMA-7 pa naman ako eh I did â€˜Sukobâ€™ so feeling ko naman wala talagang problema dun eh (Even before when Iâ€™m still with GMA-7 I did â€˜Sukobâ€™ so thereâ€™s really no problem with that). Happy ako kasi unang una eh they have their own actors and they still picked me.â€
When asked on his working relationship with TV5, the actor said everything is working smoothly and heâ€™s happy that he gets to do roles very different from his past characters.
He also dismissed reports that he moved to the Kapatid channel just because of the money offered to him.
â€œIsa yun sa mga main reasons (Itâ€™s one of the reasons). But itâ€™s not entirely about money but yung opportunity na binibigay sa akin. Iâ€™m thankful kasi napaka ganda ng inoffer nila sa akin.â€
The actor hopes he gets to do more acting projects with the network and grow side-by-side with the station and its artists. (MNS) â–
