Today is 3rd day of taping Nandito Ako. And it’s good to know that David got over his jetleg.
Finally, my 1st night sleeping all the way through. Getting fully adjusted to the time change. Another early start with filming today.

SPOT.ph’s interview with David:
SPOT.ph sat down with the newest TV5 star as he talked about acting, becoming more mature, and why it’s more fun in the Philippines.
On preparing for his first main acting gig:
“I sort of took (a class) in New York before I came over here. It wasn’t exactly like a class… The lady that I worked with was great. She helped me kind of loosen up. It made me look forward to doing this and that it’ll be fun.”
“She just really taught me (that) instead of how people sometimes get caught in reading the lines, saying the lines, and acting out the lines, she focused on how I could relate to what the words were even if it wasn’t me. For the most part the character I’m playing is very much me which is nice but there are parts where you have to pretend. So how can you still put yourself in there? How can you still connect? She was great at teaching me to find exercises on how to do that.”
On what kind of drama we’ll expect from him:
“I guess it’s pretty dramatic. There are pretty dramatic scenes in it. It’s right up the alley of (usual) dramas. Like there are parts where I get separated from my mom, and there’s a fire—like that. So it is dramatic. And there are other things going on. Like whatever love triangle is going on. Ha ha ha.”
