Derek Ramsay Happy That Tv5 Execs Appreciate All His Work To Make 'Kidlat' A Success

TV5 OFFERED a Thanksgiving mass and dinner for the success of their first superhero series, “Kidlat”, seen daily after their “Aksyon” newscast. TV5 Creative Head Perci Intalan said the show exceeded their expectations and thanked title roler Derek Ramsay for his dedication in making the show a winner in the eyes of its viewers. How does Derek feel about this?

“I feel so fulfilled kasi lahat ng paghihirap namin sa show paid off,” he says. “It’s difficult to do an action series like this. Very physically taxing and I’ve already lost 15 lbs. since we started. The superhero costume I wear is so hot kaya grabe ko kung pawisan when it’s on me. I keep on drinking water so I won’t get dehydrated. Mahaba ring kunan ang fights scenes, like the one I had with Wendell Ramos as Gravaman. In the flying scenes naman, naka-harness ako at masakit yun sa singit. Nagka-rashes ako. Pati crown jewels ko. So I wear a special protective body suit. Doon din napupunta ang pawis ko so it needs to be washed lagi, kasi kung hindi, ang baho.”

How does it affect his sex life? “Wala naman akong sex life.”

We thought he has a new girlfriend in Alexa. “We go out but hindi pa kami.”

So is it true he’s wooing Nadine Samonte, his leading lady in “Kidlat”? “We’re close friends. But walang ligawan. Lalo ngayon, namatay na yung character niya, si Lara, in ‘Kidlat’.”

But is she coming back as the show’s newest villain? “I don’t know yet. Walang sinasabi sa’kin. Basta as of now, I mourn for her death at ang ide-develop naman, yung love angle between us ni Ritz Azul, so expect na kay Ritz naman ako mali-link.”

Obviously, Derek knows it’s a common promo ploy to link stars who are paired in a TV show or movie.
