While it took more than a year after he was declared the Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus before he landed a role in Katorse., Ejay Falcon said he thinks the timing is just perfect. “Alam n’yo po nagpapasalamat ako na ngayon ako binigyan ng project kung ganito naman ‘yung success. Kasi ‘di ba kung paglabas ko ng PBB househindi pa ako ready, parang ang hirap umarte,” he explained
The dusky actor from Mindoro related that after his PBB win, he told Business Unit Head Laurenti Dyogi that he needed time to prepare himself before he tried acting. “Tapos heto na. ‘Di ba nung mga time na wala akong trabaho, at least nagwo-workshop ako at nagpapaganda ng katawan,” Ejay added.
And even as the newbie actor continues to receive harsh criticisms about his acting skills, he would rather take it as a challenge. “Parang mas nakakatulong ‘yung ganon. Mas natsa-challenge ako na gusto ko pang pagbutihan pa ‘yung acting ko ‘pag nababasa ko ‘yung ganon. Mas gagalingan ko pa,” he said. Ejay was quick to add that while he still feels sad about the negative things being said about him, he is determined to prove his detractors wrong.
After Katorse, Ejay will soon be seen in the teleserye Tanging Yaman which is due out next year and will star Melissa Ricks, Erich Gonzales, Enchong Dee, Matt Evans, Rowell Santiago, Jodi Sta. Maria, Mylene Dizon, and many more.
