“Kasi ito yung pinaka-challenging. Sobrang challenging talaga nung project na ito para sa akin. So, yung ipagkatiwala nila ito sa akin, eh, kailangan mong ibalik sa kanila. At talagang yung mga eksena namin, ang bibigat lalo na yung mga week 2, 3, mas matindi pa yon, ibang klase,” the actor said in an interview.

But does Ejay feel pressured with netizens comparing Sandugo to the longest-running primetime series, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano? Netizens were saying that Sandugo is the afternoon version of Ang Probinsyano since they both are action-drama.

During the interview, the actor shared his thoughts on netizens’ comparison.

“Actually, nakakataba ng puso na ma-compare kami don sa Ang Probinsyano kasi alam nyo naman yung… napakahuhusay ng mga artista don at saka dekalidad yung project na yon. Para maikumpara kami sa kanila, eh, sobrang ganda rin siguro ng show namin at na-appreciate nila yon.

“Pero yon nga, yung Probinsyano, ano namin, yon, eh, kumbaga, yon yung kuya ng mga action-drama series at parang kami yung mga junior. Nagpapasalamat kami na ginawa yung Probinsyano at nung ginawa yon mas nagkaroon ng pagkakataon na makagawa din kami.

“Kasi di ba, nagre-rate yung action, don nila nakita, so nabigyan kami ng chance na, ‘Uy, ba’t di pa tayo gumawa’ at mag-produce angABS ng mga ganitong show na tinatangkilik ng mga tao. So, sobrang thankful namin sa Probinsyano at nag-guest din naman kami don, pareho kaming nag-guest ni Aljur (Abrenica) sa show.”

Ejay finds the comparison a good thing. To be compared with veteran and amazing cast of the Ang Probinsyano, means that their show is also good.

Does this mean that his acting skills have leveled up in this newest series? Is he doing better now with Sandugo?

“Opo, masasabi ko talaga. Pero yung term siguro is mas matured na Ejay yung makikita niyo dito. Yung sa fight scenes, sa delivery nung mga eksena, yung intensity, masasabi ko na this time, eh, yon nga, ibinigay kong lahat. Kung sa tingin nila, eh,  level-up na matatawag yon, sige po, level-up,” proudly he answered.

Aside from his career success, how is Ejay’s relationship with girlfriend Jana Roxas? Are the two ready to tie the knot soon?

“Busy pa ako sa Sandugo, eh. At saka, hindi pa naman po ganun. Ini-enjoy muna namin yung journey ng relasyon namin. At saka buhos po talaga ang oras ko ngayon dito sa Sandugo,” the actor said.

Also in the cast of Sandugo are Aljur Abrenica, Elisse Joson, Jessy Mendiola, Cherry Pie Picache, Ariel Rivera, Vina Morales, and Gardo Versoza.
