Alden Richards To Play An Autistic Boy In Next Soap Paired With Marian Rivera

ALDEN RICHARDS is currently the guest celebrity VJ in MYX so he was able to enter ABS-CBN grounds to tape his spiels. “Actually, hindi ko naman first time pumasok sa ABS,” he says. “My first time was when I was 10 years old. I had a cousin who performed sa Dolphy Theatre and our family watched him. Pero naulit lang nang mag-VJ na ko sa My MYX on Studio 23. I’ll be their guest VJ until tomorrow, June 29. I’ll be in the show My MYX, kung saan puwedeng mag-request ang fans to play their favorite songs in Your Choice, Your Music. They can send their request through text and e-mail. Puwede rin mag-upload ng video sa YouTube para mag-request.”

His fans can also watch him perform songs from his debut album with Universal Records at the Marquee Mall this Sunday at 5 PM, where he’ll have a personal appearance along with the whole cast of his hit primetime soap, “Mundo Mo’y Akin”.

After “Mundo”, Alden will be busy shooting for his filmfest entry with Robin Padilla, “10,000 Hours”. He’s also cast in Bong Revilla’s “My Super Kap” but he says he’s not been officially informed yet about it.

For his next TV assignment, we heard he’ll be doing a soap with Marian Rivera about autism. If this were true, then this boy who didn’t make it in ‘Starstruck’ at all has now surely overtaken the careers of past Startruck winners like Mark Herras, Aljur Abrenica, Mike Tan and Steven Silva.

About the accusation of Julie Ann San Jose’s fans that he just used her to boost his career, Alden says he’ll never do such a thing. “Hindi ako manggagamit ng kahit sino for my own selfish reasons,” he says. “Kung user ako, di sana niligaw-ligawan ko na si Louise de los Reyes to help our love team.”

Julie’s fans are mad at him because he unfollowed the accounts of Julie in social media. “It’s my decision, pero kung anuman ang reasons, very personal, sa akin na lang po. Basta as of now, wala talaga akong time para manligaw kahit kanino dahil sa sobrang dami ng ginagawa ko.”

Meantime, Alden wants to ask fans of “Mundo Mo’y Akin” if they want Louise as Marilyn to become beautiful as the story ends? “Meron kasi, gusto gumanda siya. Meron naman, manatili na lang daw siyang pangit. So we want to hear the opinion of the viewers mismo. Nagpapasalamat nga kami dahil pataas nang pataas ang rating namin at tinalo raw namin yung aming kalaban.”
