Andrew Gan said that at the start of the Super Ma’am teleserye starring Marian Rivera, he was intimidated by Kapuso Primetime Queen. But after sometime, he learned that Marian was very kind.
“Si Ate Marian, noong una ay intimidating and natatakot ako sa kanya. Based iyon sa mga naririnig ko sa ibang tao. Pero nang nakausap ko na siya, bilang ate ko siya sa TripleA, sobrang mali ‘yung mga tao na nag-judge sa kanya.
“Kasi si Ate Yan (tawag kay Marian), napaka-down to earth niya. Walang ka-arte-arte sa katawan. Babaeng bakla ba kung tawagin nila. Hehehe! At higit sa lahat, totoong tao siya. Kaya siguro palagay ko nami-misinterpret siya ng mga tao. Pero ang totoo, sobrang bait niya at kapag kasama mo siya ay hindi niya ipaparamdam sa ‘yo na big star siya. Kaya Love ko ‘yan si Ate Marian,” Andrew said.
[Ate Marian, at first was intimidating and I was afraid of her. It’s based on what I hear from other people. But when I talked to her, as she’s my older sister her in TripleA, the people who were judging her were very wrong. Ate Yan, she’s down to earth. She is game for anyting. She’s even fondly called “babaeng bakla”. Hehehe! And most of all, she’s a real person. So maybe I think people misinterpret her. But the truth is, she’s very kind and when she’s with you she will not give you that big star ego. So I love ate Marian]
Andrew is an antagonist in the series, but he’s alright about it.
“Sa Super Ma’am ay kakaiba ang role ko. First ko ito gawin, antagonist po. Pero hindi siya basta kontrabida lang e, iba kasi ang attack ng normal na teleserye sa Telefantasya e. Iba iyong movements, iba iyong attack ng lines. Kaya double effort talaga ako para makapag-adjust.
“Dream role ko talaga ang maging kontrabida. Mas challenging, kasi ay mas malawak iyong range na puwede mong ibigay. Masarap laruin iyong character na kontrabida, kaya wala pong problema sa akin kung malinya ako sa kontrabida. Bida-kontrabida nga sana sa future, hehehe!”
[In Super Ma’am my role is different. It’s my first time to do such role, an antagonist. But he’s not just a villain, it’s a different take from normal teleserye to a Telefantasy. Your movements are different, your lines. So I’m really putting double effort to adjust. It’s really my dream role to become a villain. It’s more challenging, because the range is wide. It’s more fun playing a villain character, so there is no problem with me if I’m a villain. I even want to be an antagonist-protagonist in the future, hehehe! ]
Andrew considered this as his biggest break on television with the Super Ma’am teleserye.
He shared it’s also a blessing to star in Doble Kara and The Third Party, in the same year 2016. For him, that gave Andrew confidence because great artists were there with him. It is a good stepping-stone for Andrew, to build his self-confidence and be ready for a bigger role.
“Blessed din ako kasi direk LA (Madridejos) ang unang naging director ko sa GMA. Sobra iyon mag-alaga ng character. Talagang iga-guide ka, kaya mahal na mahal siya ng mga artista niya e.”
[I’m also blessed to have direk LA (Madridejos) as my first GMA director. He takes care of the characters a lot. He definitely guides people, so his artists love him]
