LionhearTV interviewed Kapuso actor Anjay Anson on November 8 to find out how his all-about-looks comment made him a better actor.
He explained, “First time na nabasa ko ‘yung comment na ‘yon, nasaktan ako. Pero parang ayun ‘yung nagpush sakin, nag-encourage sakin to do better. And to work harder pa.”
The young idol shared that he asked himself what he could do more of as an artist, one of which was doing more workshops.
Anson shared, “Ang laking tulong talaga sakin ng mga workshop na binigay nila sakin. Dahil hindi ka lang matututo na sumayaw or kumanta, mabubuild up mo rin ‘yung confidence mo.”
In the workshops, Anson learned that being unique as an actor was one of the most significant lessons.
The 20-year-old explained that everyone needs an idol to look up to, but everyone also needs to have their own flavor.
He emphasized, “Mahirap ‘yung maging eksakto ka lang nung pinoportay mo na artist. Kailangan mayroon ka ring originality.”
The matinee idol also revealed that he learned a lot from actor-host Alden Richards during one of those workshops.
Anson revealed, “Hindi ko iniexpect na ‘yung knowledge niya and ‘yung dedication niya sa work and craft niya. Pinaka tumatak sakin na sinabi niya, ‘Lagi mo tatanungin sa sarili mo, what’s next?”
The Sparkle artist explained that after hearing Richards’ talk, he learned to always strive to do new and better things.
