Geoff Eigenmann on his role as Doc Sungit: "Surprisingly, maganda 'yung response ng mga tao"
Geoff Eigenmann returns to the Kapamilya network via his role as Dr. Joselito Mariano on the most-watched daytime teleserye “Be My Lady.” The actor says that he was ecstatic when he was informed that this was going to be his comeback project because the series is so widely popular that even his nieces and nephews are singing its signature song “Tatlong Bibe.” Geoff also shares that he was attracted to “Be My Lady’s” storyline because it’s light and viewers find it easy to relate to since it shows what really happens in everyday life. But he admits that he was expecting people to be angry with his character especially since Pinang (Erich Gonzales) and Phil’s (Daniel Matsunaga) love team is already established. However, he is pleasantly surprised that the response from viewers is quite good.
When asked whether there was any hesitation in accepting the role as the third party, Geoff answers that there was none. He figures that people will always have a say one way or another no matter what character he plays, so he just has to tackle any character that comes his way head on and wholeheartedly. But the actor admits that, at first, he found it difficult to relate to his character, Dr. Mariano, who’s masungit and suplado. Nevertheless, Geoff says that he is now able to imbibe Dr. Mariano’s character, so sometimes he is stoic and hardly ever shows any reaction on the set. But he clarifies that it is only because of the role and he is far from it in real life. For now, he is just happy that, because of positive reviews, Dr. Mariano’s appearance on “Be My Lady” has been extended indefinitely.
So how was it like meeting DanRich and does he even see his character falling for Pinang? Find out in this Kapamilya Chat with Geoff Eigenmann.
