Direk Edgar “Bobot” Mortiz talks about his 'accidental' primetime TV comeback

The cast of newest Kapamilya primetime series "Dolce Amore" is exciting, what with the likes of Cherie Gil, Rio Locsin, Matteo Guidicelli, and the phenomenal pair of Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano in the lineup.

But what makes it even  more exciting is the inclusion of Direk Edgar "Bobot" Mortiz, who plays Tatay Dodoy, Tenten's (Enrique) adoptive father.

Interestingly, Direk Bobot has revealed that he became part of the cast by accident.
 
“Aksidente lang talaga kami ni Pipo (Tirso Cruz III)... nagkabiruan kami, nakita namin si MNS (Malou N. Santos, Star Creative Chief Operating Officer), sabi ni Pipo, ‘Gawa mo naman kami ng soap, magkasama kami.' Sabi ko sige basta lokohan-lokohan lang sasama ako,” he shared.
 
He further explained, “So ang alam ko magkasama kami ni Pipo dito, eh bigla namang nagkaroon si Pipo ng 'Pangako Sa’Yo' so biglang hindi na nya pwedeng gawin ‘to, eh nakasagot na ako kaya nasabit ako dito.”
 
Nonetheless, Direk Bobot doesn’t regret the accidental opportunity because he was able to experience doing a teleserye after 10 years.
 
“Natutuwa ako na nakasama dito... Iba [na] 'yung sistema so parang nung nag-taping ako, bagong-bago saken ‘tong mundong ‘to, tapos enjoy na enjoy ako. Kahit ang hirap pala ng trabaho nila sa labas, dahil ako madalas lang ako sa studio, naka-aircon pa," he shared. "Natutuwa ako at bagong experience sa'kin ito. Siyempre masaya ako na nakasama ako dito."
 
"Dolce Amore" premieres tonight, February 15, on Primetime Bida.
