19 Mar – After nearly three years of hiatus from television, Diether Ocampo is set to make his small screen comeback through the new Kapamilya Channel series, "Huwag Kang Mangamba".

As reported on Push, the actor, whose last drama was the 2018 LizQuen series, "Bagani", revealed that he always prefers shows where he can offer something new, which is why he decided to say yes to the project.

Asked if he was pickier now about his acting work, Ocampo, who is most known to his international fans through his performance in the 2003 drama, "Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas", denied such a notion.

"To be honest, our industry is small," he said. "There is no bad bread in our industry. Sometimes it just doesn't match, sometimes because of the schedule or sometimes the character given to us doesn't really fit. In my case, I've been very, very thankful and blessed to be offered this kind of project because of course a lot of people are also waiting for projects."

"But to be part of this very timely project, I guess everything just fell into place and I'm very thankful for that," he added.

As to what he has been doing for the past year, Ocampo shared that he has been busy doing lots of arts and paintings.

"Recently I joined an art exhibit in Pinto gallery. That's the one in Antipolo. Also, I was quite busy finishing my flight school. I was supposed to be getting my full license as a pilot but because of these challenging times everyone has to adjust and we've been doing everything online," he said.

The upcoming series stars Andrea Brillantes, Seth Fedelin, Francine Diaz, and Kyle Echarri, with supporting cast include Eula Valdes, Sylvia Sanchez, and RK Bagatsing among many.

It is set to premiere on 22 March replacing the Jodi Sta. Maria series, "Ang sa Iyo ay Akin".
