Rehearing some lines for Nandito Ako promo – caaannnt WAIT!

Girls, girls… don’t shoot, am just the messenger, ok? Just think, it is just make believe…

THE PLOT
David’s mini-series is titled Nandito Ako. He will play an international singer born in the Philippines.

According to the plot, his character was five years old when a fire ravaged his home, separating him from his mother. He grew up in the United States.

Years later, he will come back to the Philippines to look for his family, and a girl he befriended during the fire.

ON WHY HE IS DOING THE MINI SERIES

Although he declined to say how much he was offered, he admitted that he agreed to do the project because he loves his Filipino fans.

“Even though I may not be a [professional] actor, I thought this would be a really great new experience to try.

“Especially in the Philippines because I feel very comfortable with the people and I feel the fans here are very warm,” he explained.

Dapper David, I mean, Josh 😉

A new hair cut by @pinantonio of Cutting-Edge! And a new do for the photoshoot! Do you like it?

@dantenicogarcia The boy is so warm, humble and so well-mannered… It feels like directing my little brother… I just directed the plug of the mini-series… We just did a scene in a hotel staircase with two girls fighting over him.

… @Jana__OR: Slappy? lol! — ‘Slappy’ because @DavidArchie got slapped by a girl in the scene that I directed.

Nandito Ako director Mac Alejandre – Folks, I feel good that he is at the helm of the teleserye 🙂
