In an interview with GMANetwork.com, published on October 27, Tanfelix shared how the pandemic has helped him relearn his acting skills.
“Iba na kasi ngayon kasi after nag-hit ‘yung pandemic, ang daming taon na lumipas, sobrang kailangan ng transition period para sa mga characters na gagampanan ko and being a young adult, ‘di naman s’ya palagi ka na lang nag-e-express ng emosyon mo.
“So sakto, bilang young adult ako, ‘yun ‘yung mga roles na napupunta sa ‘kin is gano’n din ‘yung age group and kailangan ko i-expose ‘yung sarili ko sa mga male dominant films like Fight Club, Falling Down, favorite ko Top Gun.
“So in-expose ko ‘yung sarili ko in preparation for these roles kasi alam kong ‘di na ‘to katulad ng mga roles na ginagampanan ko noon so I had to relearn.”
He started his career as a child star following his first runner-up win in Kapuso star search Starstruck Kids in 2004.
