Alden Richards Excited To Do First Action Movie With Robin Padilla

ALDEN RICHARDS thought he’d be free by this time to devote all his attention to shooting his Metro filmfest movie, “10,000 Oras”, where he’ll play the young Sen. Panfilo Lacson, while Robin Padilla plays Sen. Lacson as he is now. But what he didn’t anticipate is that his hit primetime soap, “Mundo Mo’y Akin”, will be extended for one more month. So now, he’ll have to tape for “Mundo” and also find time to shoot the movie on the side.

“Mahirap, pero kakayanin ko,” he says. “Sayang nga, hindi kami magkakasama ni Tito Robin sa isang eksena as we’re both playing the same character. Dream ko pa naman to act with him. First action movie ko ito kasi pakikitang hahawak ako ng baril dito. I have to train how to use the gun with my right hand, like Tito Robin, kasi left-handed ako sa totoong buhay.”

As for “Mundo Mo’y Akin”, Alden and all his co-stars feel upbeat over the fact that their soap has been maintaining its dominance in the ratings nationwide according to AGB Nielsen. “Tuwang-tuwa kaming lahat na kami ang number one show on primetime ngayon, kaya naman ganado ang lahat sa pagte-taping. Lalong tumaas ang ratings namin noong gumanda na si Louise de los Reyes as Marilyn, kaya lang mas sumungit naman ang pagkatao niya. Inaakusahan ako as Jerome na I’m just after sa kayamanan ng family nila. Patuloy pa rin akong hinamak ng lola niyang si Jaclyn Jose as Madame Charito at ng father niyang si Gabby Eigenmann as Ziggy. Siya naman, naiinggit dahil ai Lauren Young as Darlene is now very close sa kinagisnan niyang ina, si Sunshine Dizon as Perlita.”
