Charee Pineda

Actress Charee Pineda of afternoon series “Angelito” addressed rumors that she is engaged to her non-showbiz boyfriend.

During a pictorial for “Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto,” the sequel to the hit afternoon soap, Pineda said she is ready to get married but did not directly say anything about the alleged proposal of her current partner.

The young actress then showed her ringless hand to members of the press.

“It would be too soon for me to comment on our relationship. I have to talk to my bosses muna before ako mag-comment. Hindi rin naman kasi siya from showbiz, baka ma-ano rin,” Pineda said.

“Tingin ko yes (I’m ready). Twenty-one naman na ako, adult na ako. And ‘yung mom ko got married nang 18 years old, so tingin ko wala naman sa age ‘yan eh. As long as feel mo na ready ka, wala akong kaso dun,” she added.

In “Angelito,” Pineda plays the role of Rosalie, who is seen to be married to the lead character in the series portrayed by JM de Guzman.

Pineda shared that she has been attending workshops in preparation for the sequel of “Angelito.”

“Nag-workshop pa ulit kami, kailangan namin mag-immersion para at least ma-feel namin kung paano maging parents, o paano maging mag-asawa,” she said.

Asked how it feels after “Angelito” earned a second series, she said: “Sobrang happy lang, mas pinagkakatiwalaan na kami, mas malaki na ‘yung roles na ibinibigay samin. At saka ‘yung pressure sa’min – ang deal sa ‘min kailangan maging number one kami kaya sobrang pressure talaga at effort ‘yung ginagawa naming.”

“Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto” will see Pineda paired anew with de Guzman as they portray a couple with a family of their own.

Actress Kaye Abad will still be part of the series, which will welcome John Prats as part of its ensemble cast.

It is set for a release later this year. (MNS)
