He is definitely one of the hottest teen heartthrobs in the early 2000s. And in the past decade, we’ve witnessed how JC De Vera has transformed into becoming one of the most in-demand leading men in the local entertainment scene.
And now that he’s about to capture our hearts anew in the much-awaited television airing of La Vida Lena starting June 28, let’s look back on his remarkable ABS-CBN journey in this episode of Kapamilya Spotlight!
His showbiz career may have kicked off in 2003 through his stint in a youth-oriented program in another network, but it was only in 2013 when he became a certified Kapamilya. He initially appeared as a special guest in the first anniversary episode of the sitcom Toda Max.
JC then had his teleserye debut in the iconic 2014 primetime drama The Legal Wife as Max Gonzales, the unfaithful boyfriend of Maja Salvador’s Nicole. It was succeeded by Moon of Desire, wherein he played the role of Dr. Jeff Bustamante, the plastic surgeon who treated – and eventually fell in love – with Meg Imperial’s character Ayla.
2015 was indeed a busy year for him as he appeared in four ABS-CBN programs. He had his first gig in long-running drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya, wherein he portrayed Andrew, a man who figured in an illicit affair with his college sweetheart Bea (Shaina Magdayao) in its “Email” episode.
It was succeeded by his first-ever Ipaglaban Mo stint through the “Pusong Mapanlinlang” episode, wherein he astounded us with his compelling performance as a man who fell in love with two women. He also became a mainstay in the now-defunct comedy program Banana Sundae and had a guest appearance in the long-running primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano as Jarred Santos.
In 2016, he headlined Wansapanataym: Just Got Laki as the titular character Michael, as well as two episodes of MMK, namely “Pictures”, which narrated the story of “Courageous Catie”, and “Golden Boy”.
The following year, JC starred in the afternoon soap opera The Better Half as Rafael Cabrera, who eventually became the love interest of Shaina Magdayao’s character Camille. It was followed by another appearance in MMK via its “Baso” episode.
He went on to top-bill the 2018 primetime series Since I Found You alongside Piolo Pascual and Arci Muñoz, wherein he played the role of the stern and antagonistic Ginno Arnaldo. Then he once again lent his acting chops in an episode of Ipaglaban Mo titled “Abogada”.
In 2019, he was cast as Ethan del Fierro in the action-drama series The General’s Daughter alongside other seasoned and veteran thespians in the country. The following year, he had a brief significant gig in the family series Pamilya Ko as Nathan Rubiñol, a university professor who git engaged in a forbidden relationship with his student Peachy, played by Maris Racal.
And this 2021, JC is about to captivate us anew through his stint as Adrian Narciso, one of the charming love interests of the titular character portrayed by Erich Gonzales in the upcoming revenge series La Vida Lena.
