the 29-year-old heartthrob juggles his showbiz work with studies.

Alden Richards no longer stays up all night playing video games. He also works out five times a week and eats a healthy diet.

These were some of the lifestyle changes the heartthrob actor adopted to give life to his protagonist role Louie Asuncion in the GMA drama series The World Between Us.

“When you commit something to the audience and to the role, you will really do everything to give it a chance,” the
29-year-old Richards told the media in a Zoom meet for the show which was back on air on 22 November after a brief hiatus.

The Kapuso talent revealed he hungered for more knowledge — not just in his job but also in his personal life.

“For the past years, I focused solely on my craft. I somewhat abandoned some things… like studying,” he said, adding that he juggles shooting the series and school to fill up his downtime.

He takes seriously his work in The World Between Us which requires much preparation. Even on rest days, he said he works on his role since “it will show” if he becomes lax.

The coming holidays should give him a breather — he’ll spend Christmas, New Year and his birthday on 2 January in the United States.

It’ll be his first to fly out of the country after two years of the pandemic.
