Geoff Eigenmann updated us on his life’s milestones and clarified one of his biggest issues in the past when he appeared on Tonight with Boy Abunda on Wednesday, August 14.
Although it somehow seemed imperceptible for someone as good-looking and as talented as Geoff, the first thing he discussed on this TWBA interview is about battling insecurities. Being the son of two showbiz industry luminaries, Michael De Mesa and Gina Alajar, Geoff admitted that he felt a lot of pressure following their footsteps in the same field.
According to Geoff, being a fat kid in the past and having a speech problem are his two major insecurities that keep on giving him self-doubts. Nevertheless, he is now choosing to believe more in himself. He is learning to accept praises from other people regarding his career and his physical appearance. He is also proud to tell us that he took speech therapy classes, which helped him to speak clearer and slower than he did before.
Another achievement he gained lately is getting to portray Vito Dela Cuesta in the recently launched gothic-romance drama titled The Killer Bride. Paired with Maja Salvador who plays the titular role, Geoff’s character was torn between his family and the love of his life.
Geoff recalled first working with the award-winning actress in the 2006 Star Cinema offering “First Day High,” opposite Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson. In that film, Maja played as the ‘sosy’ girl Pré while Geoff was the rebel guy, Gael. After the box office hit, they were paired in a Maalaala Mo Kaya episode in 2008, after which they were supposed to appear in a teleserye, but plans were shelved. Looking back on all that, Geoff said that now is the perfect time for their reunion. He pointed out that attaining maturity and gaining experience through the years has made their present tandem more effective.
About his alleged feud with Kapamilya actor Aljur Abrenica in the past, Geoff said they never actually fought. Recounting the issue, he clarified that no physical fight happened between them.
“Nag-usap kami, there was this one time we talked about a problem. This happened during the time that Carla [Abellana] and I separated and during that time, I was also partnered with Kylie [Padilla]. [I am] doing a show with her and during that time, they were together. Since nag-end ‘yong relationship ko with Carla [Abellana] and then I think they were going through problems as well, I think people were putting one on one together… [Our talk], it went very well. We shook hands right after and it ended right there,” Geoff shared.
Now, Geoff shared how happy he is that he finally found the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with --- music artist Maya Flores. When asked about how faithful he is to his fiancé Maya, he proudly said that he is 100% faithful and honest to her. Geoff said that he and Maya continue to make their relationship work by constantly understanding and loving each other unconditionally. Moreover, he told us that they work hard together and give their full effort as hands-on parents to their babies Arabella and Augustus.
Towards the end of his interview, Geoff invited us not to miss a single episode of The Killer Bride. In addition, he took on the show’s famous segment “Fast Talk,” wherein he revealed some of the most thought provoking facts about his personal life.
