Why Alfred Vargas returned to ABS-CBN
ALFRED Vargas decided not to renew his contract with GMA7 which expired last year.
He's now a freelancer, and quite happy that ABS-CBN took him again after seven years. He's now in the new fantaserye, “Mutya,” playing a merman named Irvin, the prince of the sea. Alfred is paired here with Precious Lara Quigaman, and they have a lot of underwater scenes which call for them to be scantily clad as underwater characters.
Doesn't Lara's boyfriend, actor Marco Alcaraz feel jealous?
"No, I don't think so," says Alfred. "We all understand it's work."
His girlfriend, Yasmine who's now in Italy feels the same, he shares.
Alfred looks fit as a merman with his body in top shape now. "Medyo tumaba ako nu’ng panahon ng kampanya," says Alfred, who's now a councilor in the second district of Quezon City. "Tapos, nag-diet ako after."
His father's death recently even added to the reasons why he lost his appetite. Alfred was quite close to his father, whom he considered a "big inspiration." But he has to move on, and now, "bumabawi na lang ako ng kain sa taping," he says. "Mahirap magutom kasi ang hirap ng taping namin."
