Exclusive: Jayson Gainza turns playboy for Betty
By Napoleon Quintos
Last July 21, Jayson Gainza started taping for his guest stint on I Love Betty La Fea. Jayson proved himself an able actor and comedian, going up against Bea Alonzo, Ruffa Gutierrez, Meryll Soriano, and Wendy Valdez in his scenes. The Pinoy Big Brother ex-housemate later sat down with ABS-CBN.com to talk about his role and family.
In I Love Betty La Fea, Jayson plays Adolfo, a sleazy and conceited human resources officer at the Eco Moda advertising company. "Mayabang na manyakis si Adolfo. Basta maganda, ipapasa niya. E biglang mag a-apply sa kanya si Betty. Abangan nila kung paano makukuha si Betty bilang sekretarya ni Armando, " Jayson describes his role.
As the lecherous Adolfo, Jayson departs from his usual wholesome brand of humor, but the comedian says that viewers will still find his character hilarious rather than disgusting. "Yung pagka-manyakis at pagka-mayabang ko dito hindi naman kaiinisan. Mayabang at pilyo sa chicks si Adolfo, pero kadalasan nagkakamali siya kaya nakakatawa."
In real life, Jayson is a devoted family man. The 28-year-old actor tells ABS-CBN.com that his wife Denden isn’t bothered by his role in Betty and has actually been very supportive of his every project. His two children are excited to see him go through his funny antics on TV. "Natuwa siya (Denden) nung nalaman niya na makakasama ako sa Betty. Yung pangalawa kong anak marunong na magbasa, makikita niya yung script kapag nagpa-practice ako sa bahay kaya tinatanong niya ako kung ano role ko. Kinikwentuhan ko naman, sabi ko sana hindi ako mabaril sa istorya," he joked in reference to his last guest role in Lastikman.
