MANILA, Aug 26 (Mabuhay) -– Despite his blockbuster movie “That Thing Called Tadhana” with Angelica Panganiban, JM de Guzman still feels he has to prove that he deserves his second shot in showbiz.

And de Guzman will get that chance when he makes his teleserye comeback with the afternoon series “All of Me.”

“Honestly nawawala ako minsan sa dapat kong i-focus kasi minsan kinakain ako ng pressure. Takot magkamali. Gusto ko ibigay ang best ko. I’m being too hard on myself pero sobrang supportive nung team. Iniintindi nila ako, tinutulungan nila ako,” de Guzman told ABS-CBN News on Monday.

When he finds his job difficult, de Guzman said he just thinks of his inspiration to pull it off.

“Siyempre unang [inspirasyon ko si] Lord kasi binigay niya sa akin ito. Wala na ito dapat pero binigay Niya pa rin sa akin. Sa family ko din na umaasa sa akin, sa lolo ko na dying wish niya is makita niya ako sa TV. Para rin sa sarili ko, sa mga magiging anak ko na hindi ako bumagsak. Bumangon din ako,” he said.

And his girlfriend, actress Jessy Mendiola?

“Ini-inspire niya ako kahit nung nagsa-start pa lang po ulit ako, bago pa mag ‘Tadhana.’ Siya ‘yung nagpu-push sa akin na, ‘Kaya mo pa ‘yan. Magaling ka,’” he said.

Meanwhile, de Guzman only has good words for his “All of Me” co-actors Yen Santos and Albert Martinez.

“Hands down, sobrang galing ni Yen, sobrang galing nilang lahat. Ngayon ko lang napanood na hindi edited tapos may mga kulang na scenes. Sobrang swerte ako na naging part ako ng show,” he said.

“Kinikilig ako sobra kay Tito Albert. Alam mo ‘yung sa videoke na may kumanta na sobrang galing tapos ikaw ‘yung next? Parang ayaw ko na lang kumanta, parang ganun ‘yung pakiramdam,” he added.

Right now, de Guzman said his only prayer is for him to deliver his job properly.

“Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyo at sa lahat po ng pumunta para manood ng ‘All of Me.’ Sobrang grateful ako and araw-araw nagpe-pray ako na sana mabigay ko ang best ko, and mapakita ko na deserved ko itong second chance na ito. Mabait po si Lord,” he said.

Directed by Dondon S. Santos, “All of Me” is scheduled to premiere this August. (MNS)
