During the intimate press conference for the upcoming Kapamilya teleserye, A Soldier’s Heart, the show’s lead actor Gerald Anderson was asked by if there is added pressure that their show will be competing against the forthcoming Kapuso teleserye Descendants of The Sun, which has the similar military concept as theirs.
“Siguro, kung kilala niyo ko, I’m a very competitive person,” the lead star said. “It just makes it even better. Mas napapaganda ’yong proyekto namin because, siyempre, magiging competitive tayo sa kabila.”
However, for the actor, that is not the real case. For him, the real goal of the show is to give a message to the viewers regarding the Philippine military.
“Ang gusto lang natin [ay] maparating ’yong mensahe,” Gerald clarified. “Maparating ’yong mensahe na gusto natin makita [ng] bayan natin.”
He then cited a real-life example of the message the show wanted to relay, mentioning the soldiers who helped those affected by the recent Taal Volcano eruption.
“Nakita niyo naman ’yong nangyari sa Taal na dumating ’yong mga sundalo para magbigay ng tulong. ’Yan ang pinaka-importante sa lahat.” he said.
Apart from Anderson, A Soldier’s Heart also stars Vin Abrenica, Nash Aguas, Carlo Aquino, Yves Flores, Elmo Magalona, Jerome Ponce, and Sue Ramirez. The show is written by Jerry B. Gracio and is helmed by Richard Romes.
It starts airing on Monday, January 20.
