Mikael Daez exerts effort to maintain his flaunt-worthy physique knowing that it’s a necessary for his work. He admits that it’s hard, especially now that he is busy, but Mikael partly does the trick by watching what he eats.

He said, “Importante sa akin kung anong klase ’yung kinakain ko. May idea ako kung ano ang healthy sa hindi.”

Mikael has vowed to make eating healthy part of his lifestyle. He explained, “Hindi kasi pwedeng healthy ka ng one month lang or may certain deadline ka kung hanggang kelan mo lang gusto maging healthy.”

Whenever he is free, Mikael plays basketball, his first love. The actor shared that he used to play for his school up to the time he reached college.

“(At) Nag ji-gym din ako, talagang all out,” he said.

Being in show business for some time now, Mikael said he is ready to try sexy roles.

Basta ba kaya kong panindigan eh,” he said, adding, “Gusto ko kasi makita din ng manunuod na iba-iba ‘yung kaya kong gawing role.”

Mikael related that before accepting any project, he sits down with manager Betchay Vidanes to discuss it thoroughly.

Tatanungin ako ng manager ko kung gusto ko bang gawin tong project na ito, kung kaya ko ba. Kapag hindi… ‘wag nalang,” he said.

Mikael is just thankful that a lot of opportunities are coming his way.

Hindi naman kasi lahat ng oras may ibibigay na trabaho sa’yo eh. Kaya sa ngayon go lang ako ng go sa mga projects hangga’t kaya ko,” he

After working together on “Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga,” followed by a stint on the morning program “With A Smile,” Mikael is being paired anew with Andrea Torres on “Ang Lihim Ni Annasandra.”

Mikael said his work relationship Andrea is more relaxed.

Hindi na ako naiilang. Pero minsan merong scenes na napapatanong na lang kami kung paano namin gagawin,” he said.

Directed by Jun Lana, “Ang Lihim Ni Annasandra” is a fantasy romance drama that tells the story of a mysterious woman’s search for true love. (MNS)
