- Comedian Archie Alemania said he is enjoying working for the Kapuso network
- He transferred from ABS-CBN last year
- Archie also revealed a lot of differences in working environments between ABS-CBN and GMA
Archie Alemania shared with PEP how much he's happy with his career growth in GMA Network.
The comedian used to work for the Kapamilya network, but in 2016, he moved to the rival station.
"Dito yung second chance na hinahanap ko, GMA ang nagbigay sa akin," said Archie.
He said he is happy that the network always has a project for him. He is also thankful that he is given the chance to be the lead actor in some shows.
"Dito sa GMA, binibigyan naman nila ako ng chance na magbida sa Tadhana, Karelasyon, Wagas, Bubble Gang. Mga sketches ko, mga sarili ko, I mean, naibibigay naman nila yung gusto ko, yung pinapangarap ko," shared Archie.
He also revealed that his talent fee in GMA is twice as high as what he used to receive in ABS-CBN.
"Honestly, yes, doble kaysa sa kabila. So happy tapos hindi pa nila ako binabakante, dire-diretso, mas masaya," said Archie.
The 39-year-old actor also revealed the difference in how the production staff treat celebrities in GMA.
"Hindi pa ako nagkakaroon ng katrabaho dito na sila lang yung mga inaasikaso kaysa doon sa mga support," revealed Archie.
He said all actors were treated equally in GMA.
Another difference he said is that, in ABS-CBN, the celebrities are more afraid of the staff.
"Sa kabila kasi, mas takot ang mga artista sa mga staff. Parang sabihin kaagad, kikilos kaagad ang mga artista sa kabila, e. Dito kasi may feel na parang homey-homey, yung feeling na parang relax lang, hindi pressured. Doon kasi parang tarantahan, e," he said.
Archie started his career as part of Star Magic in 2003.
He also appeared in several television commercials. He was also a member of Big Brother's Dance Group, Big Men Dance Group, and the Big Men Singers.
He is currently a mainstay of Bubble Gang since 2016.
He first transferred to GMA Network in 2010 to 2011, before returning again to ABS-CBN.
He moved back to GMA in 2016.
