American Idol alum David Archuleta will soon star on a TV5 show, Nandito Ako, with Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Eula Caballero. He’ll shoot the series for a few weeks before he embarks on the Mormon mission he announced last month.

The show’s gist: David plays a Fil-Am singer who was separated from his Pinay mom at the age of 5 because of a hotel fire. During the same fire, he rescued a young girl. Tune in to find out what happened to his mom and who the young girl is: Jasmine’s character or Eula’s?

  1. On his first starring role. “Even though I may not be a pro actor, I feel like it would be a really great new experience to try, especially here in the Philippines because I feel very comfortable with the people here.”
  2. On his first acting lessons. “I think that sometimes, people could get caught up just reading lines. My acting coach helped me focus on how I could relate to my character. For the most part, the character I’m playing is very much me, which is nice, but there are parts where you have to play pretend… I really enjoyed it; it was fun for me.”
  3. On Jasmine and Eula. “I got to talk to them for a little bit when I got here this morning. They were very nice. I look forward to working with them.”
  4. On the first thing he wants to check off his bucket list this year. “I want to finish writing more songs before I go on my mission. That’s one of my New Year’s resolutions. I have plenty of other things on my bucket list like go skydiving, scuba diving, swimming with sharks, bungee jumping, riding a hot air balloon, and learning how to drive a stick shift—I’ve tried but I want to be really good, good enough to go on the freeway.”
