Who knew this is what Richard likes to play?!

Kapamilya actor Richard Yap spoke about how he’s grown as an actor these past few years, moving from a light show like “Be Careful With My Heart” (2012) to a more complex series like “Sana Dalawa Ang Puso.”

“Medyo mas may drama ‘to ngayon eh. Medyo mas malalim ‘yung stories, may mga conflict. Acting-wise siguro, it’s a deeper and more complicated type of acting than before,” he said at his bloggers conference last night, May 23.

He revealed that he took workshops before beginning the series in order to prepare.

“I took workshops so I could improve myself and learn how to be better at this craft kasi dati, wala kaming ganung training,” he shared. “Ito lang talaga ang formal training that I got.”

He also admitted that he found playing Martin Co quite the challenge.

“Medyo mas challenging ‘tong role as Martin because he has to go through a whole range of emotions which I didn’t have to do as Sir Chief,” he said. “This is quite challenging enough for me. I just want to learn from this experience also so I can improve my craft para sa ibang challenges na mabibigay sa ‘kin next time.”

When asked how he felt about playing a darker, angrier Martin now that the show has progressed, the 51-year-old shared that he actually found it easier than playing a happy character.

“Parang it’s easier to play that character rather than to play a very happy character. Parang isa lang kasi ang emotion if you’re medyo masungit compared to happy - there’s so many emotions involved,” he explained. “I just find it easier to be brooding. Siguro kasi that was my character before, so parang na-perfect ko na ‘yung pagka ganun siguro. It’s much harder to be more happy, more spontaneous, ‘yung mga ganun.”

Well, he obviously is very good at it because fans are almost always torn between being angry at the character or fawning over him.

“Siyempre, ngayon, naiinis sila sa ‘kin because I’ve been treating Mona (Jodi Sta. Maria) badly, pero that just means that I’m hitting the right nerves,” he said. “I’m happy na affected sila, kasi kung hindi, ibig sabihin hindi effective ‘yung ginagawa ko.”  

Richard then gave a little tease on what to expect in the coming weeks.

“Ang dami kasing characters so expect a lot of twists and surprises. Kami nga mismo, nasu-surprise sa story because the writers are so good at coming up with these unexpected scenes and circumstances. Marami pa kayong aabangan. Most of them will surprise you, some of them will rile up your emotions,” he said.
