Actor Tom Rodriguez has only good words for veteran actresses Jaclyn Jose and Dina Bonnevie, his co-stars in The World between Us top-billed by Alden Richards and Jasmine Curtis-Smith.
“I can’t stress enough how lucky I feel to be working with actresses of such caliber. They’re treasure troves of wisdom and knowledge. Not only when it comes to our craft but life experiences as well,” the 33-year-old actor said in a virtual interview.
“They’re so generous with their wisdom and experience and I absolutely agree. They’re very good motivators for a new breed of actors like us to continue honing our craft,” he added.
Tom admitted that he feels as if he’s still a newbie actor whenever he does scenes with them.
“There’s so much that is still out of my capacity. If I were to compare it to painting, it’s like the palette of my contribution to the show is still limited. It’s nice seeing the palette that they have and they’re nice enough to hand me a tube of paint and put it in my own palette. I’m grateful to both of them because they tolerate and really help me out,” Tom related.
Talking about his character in the primetime soap, the actor describes it as a complicated character and something not relatable at first.
“After reading the script, I asked why Bryan is like that. What’s in him and what’s driving him? Then I realized that he’s just longing for love and its warmth. He’s a wounded person. Actually, each character in the soap, you can empathize with. You know where they’re coming from. They’re not one-track characters. They have the chance to see their mistakes---to see outside of themselves. They can see the world through the perspective of others,” he explained.
Apart from Dina, Jaclyn, Jasmine, and Alden, Tom is with a bunch of dependable actors in the series such as Sid Lucero, Kelley Day, Yana Asistio, and Glydel Mercado in a special participation.
“With this talented cast, I feel very positive about the program,” he ends.
