KNOWN for doing leading man roles both in drama or comedy, Matt Evans gets to portray a different character in his first major project with GMA Network since his transfer in September last year.
The 31-year-old actor portrays Dindo Carazo, boss to Ruru Madrid’s character, Sherlock Calubaquib Jackson Jr. in the Kapuso Network’s newest primetime series, “Sherlock Jr.”
“Medyo ako ‘yung kontrabida (nang) konti. Pero di naman ganoon (ka evil) kasi light drama lang siya,” Evans told Cebu Daily News in a press conference last Jan. 20.
Playing his father in the series is Tonton Gutierrez.
“Yun nga ‘yung character niya na si Dindo may pagka spoiled. Pag may hindi nakukuha doon lumalabas ang tunay na ugali,” he said.
Evans, whose showbiz career started in 2006 when he was picked as one of the housemates of “Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 1,” was asked what he has observed about today’s generation of actors compared to the time when he was still starting out in the industry.
He said the current crop of stars are more competitive.
“Makikita mo na aggressive sila sa craft nila. Willing talaga sila matuto. Noong sa amin, parang naglalaro lang po kami sa time na ‘yun ‘eh. Tsaka hindi pa ganoon (sobra) ‘yung competition namin sa time ‘yun. Kumbaga, barkadahan lang,” he said.
Headlined by Ruru Madrid as an investigator who solves crimes with the help of a dog named Serena, “Sherlock Jr.” aired its pilot episode on Monday. The series also stars Gabbi Garcia, Andre Paras, Janine Gutierrez, and Aiai delas Alas.
