Derek Ramsay can’t wait to do scenes with Gretchen Barretto and Bea Alonzo

Universal leading man Derek Ramsay bags what seems to be the role fantasized by actors, and that is to be the object of desire of not just one but two of the most beautiful actresses in showbiz. In the upcoming teleserye Magkaribal, Derek will find himself torn between Gretchen Barretto and Bea Alonzo. Although he never thought of being in a love triangle specifically with Gretchen and Bea, Derek admitted that coming to the set has never been this exciting for him because of his leading ladies. “I never pictured it pero it’s a great feeling na I’ll be coming to the set almost everyday with two of the most beautiful actresses ang makakatrabaho. It’s going to be a wonderful experience.”

Derek had worked with Bea before in the movie And I Love You So, that’s why the two bonded easily during meetings for the pre-production for Magkaribal. However, ever since words spread that he was the personal choice of Gretchen as her leading man should she decide to do a teleserye, Derek has been feeling intimidated. “Actually na-break na ‘yung ice sa aming dalawa but I’m still intimidated by her. I’m more comfortable now because nakikita ko na siyang magtrabaho. Pero ‘yung feeling na I get nervous everytime I see her hindi na siguro mawawala ‘yun. Ang magagawa ko na lang is to direct o i-channel ‘yun para maka-act ako nang mabuti.”

The moreno model-turned-actor also looks forward into portraying a role that is very much close to his real-life passion which is contact sports. “Astig ang role ko dito. Isa akong mixed martial arts fighter na pinagaagawan ng dalawang babae. Hindi na ako mayaman dito. Batang kalye ako. Puno ng angst. Ang pangarap ko sa buhay eh maging mixed martial arts fighter.” Also, Derek loves that for the first time he gets to appear deglamorized on screen. “Gusto ko namang ipakita na kaya kong mag-portray na mahirap. Kadalasan kasi mga roles ko sosyal, mayaman. Ngayon mas marami akong action scenes kaysa drama.”

Production for Magkaribal will soon begin, that’s why Derek is a bit sad that his South Africa trip with girlfriend Angelica Panganiban would have to be cut short. “Sa June 6 na ang alis namin. Kaya lang I have responsibilities kaya na-cut ‘yung bakasyon. I’ll be back June 30. Lahat gagawin na namin. We will maximize the time we have there.”

Having been secure with his relationship with Angelica, Derek never had problem working with other actresses, and also seeing his girlfriend being paired with other leading men. For now Derek is happy that the gossip that haunted his relationship with the young actress for the past three years have slowly been put to rest. “I was never really affected by the intrigues pero masarap na feeling na wala naman sa mga bad rumors ang nagsa-succeed na sirain kami. What we have is real, so hindi dapat pinakikialaman. We’ve gone through so much in three years and we’re still going strong.”
