Wendell Ramos speaks about leaving ‘On The Job’ for ‘Prima Donnas Book 2’

The actor believed that there may be a miscommunication as to why Matti and his team were not informed about his departure.

Kapuso actor Wendell Ramos confirmed on Wednesday, January 12, that he left the On The Job (OTJ) series for Prima Donnas Book 2, eventually angering director Erik Matti.

Earlier on November 22, 2021, Matti became a guest of Ogie Diaz on his YouTube channel. The director, although not dropping any names, said he never wanted to work with an actor ever again.

However, it was obvious that Matti was referring to Ramos, who was initially part of the OTJ movie. The actor did not appear in the HBO Go mini-series of the film.

At the virtual media conference of Prima Donnas Book 2, Ramos does not want to make a “big fuss out of it,” clarifying that he did not intend to leave the set of OTJ without any guidance from his talent agency, PPL Entertainment Inc.

“Yeah I think alam naman din po ng production po. May mga scenes po na may nangyari pong ganoon na I have to be back sa Prima Donnas. Ang nag-ayos naman po ng schedules ko lahat is under PPL po. Hindi naman po ako gumagawa ng move without the permission of my agency. I think they’re all good din naman po,” he explained.

The actor believed that there might be a miscommunication about why Matti and his team were not informed about his departure.

“Siguro doon sa side nina Direk Eric Matti, baka hindi lang sila na-heads up, which is siguro nagkataon lang na busy. Wala naman po sigurong intention, it’s just that hindi lang po nagkaroon ng communication yung mga nasa production.”

In the meantime, Ramos will reprise his role as a CEO in the second season of Prima Donnas. The actor, who also is a businessman in real life, took it as an opportunity to learn what’s it like to lead a company.

“Siguro it’s a blessing na rin na natatapat ako dito in a way na it would help me also para mapangatawanan ko kung ano man ang errands ko behind cam.”

He also thinks that playing a CEO is just a coincidence, stressing that he is still open to other roles. The actor was also thankful for the trust that the show’s creative team gave him.

“Kahit anong role, hindi ko sinasarado yung pintuan ko para sa mga roles.

“It’s just that nagkataon lang din po and I’m very proud to say, and I’m very humbled to say, and thankful na rin po na pinagkakatiwalaan ako ng creative team para mabigyan ako ng isang role na mahirap din naman pong gawin, ang maging isang CEO. I’m very blessed, yun lang po.”



Prima Donnas Book 2 will begin airing on January 24 on GMA Afternoon Prime.
