BeFunky_CIMG5128.jpgKapuso actor JERIC GONZALES also known as Jeff Calida in the afternoon drama series PYRA: ANG BABAENG APOY said, that he’s not totally out of the scene and that his character is coming back as PYRA’s ‘vengeful angel’ or ‘devilish savior’ during the final two weeks of the top-rating series.

Had a chance to talk to the young protege from southern luzon last Monday at their ‘Perya’ set.  Jeric said that PYRA: Ang Babaeng Apoy which stars THEA TOLENTINO will run for two more weeks.  The final taping is scheduled on November 27 highlighting scenes of reunion between Pyra (Thea), Susan (Gladys Reyes) and Daniel (Ryan Eigenmann) which will be the turning point of the whole story.

It will be an exciting and intense finale for PYRA hinted with death and forgiveness according to the young actor.  He also said that although the character of BETO (played by TeeJay Marquez) stole most of her day in the sun with the fiery PYRA – Jeff (Jeric’s character) will still be the one to save her in the end.

Jeric admitted that he was at first a little uneasy and a bit insecure with the introduction of TeeJay Marquez (Beto) in the series.  But he said, that everything was okay with the two of them.

So does that mean that JEFF is now ready to give way to BETO when it comes to PYRA?

“Hindi.  Kukunin ko siya kay Beto.”  Jeric replied.

Jeric added that he and Thea are good friends.

“Naging mas close kami ni Thea dito sa Pya.  Close to the point na nakakapag-open na kami sa isa’t-isa tungkol sa mga problems sa family at personal life.  We also give each other advices now, dati kasi work lang talaga e.”  He said.

In fact, their chemistry as a ‘love team’ has gotten some great reviews that there have been news that the two will be doing an album together for GMA Records.  This is not really a surprise, since both are also musically inclined.


Jeric admitted that the two of them already did some sample recordings for the said project.  They covered the songs ‘Terrified’ and ‘A Thousand Years’ which have already been forwarded to management for reviews.

If all plans pushes through, their album will be GMA Records’ first loveteam-based studio recording.

Jeric’s dream role is to portray a super hero like Captain Barbell.  He look up to fellow Kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes not only for his acting skills but also his attitude and dedication to the craft.

Here is Jeric Gonzales inviting everyone to watch the final episodes of PYRA: ANG BABAENG APOY
