Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano are both hoping they’d be given more time together to help them establish a credible on-screen chemistry.

Fortunately, the two who played best of friends in the 2013 rom-com “She’s The One,” will get their wish as they headline ABS-CBN’s upcoming primetime romantic drama series “Forevermore.”

Enrique, who has already been paired with countless leading ladies in his young career, is aware of the disadvantages of not having a constant love team partner, one of which is the inability to develop rapport.

Another point of consideration for him are the fans. “Kapag they fall in love with the love team (established) before, mahirap silang mag-accept ng bago.”

On the other hand, being able to share screen time with a variety of actors has proven beneficial for Enrique and has allowed him to “grow more as an actor.”

Liza, for her part, is excited to be paired with the actor, whom she admits is her crush. “So ngayon I’m happy na ma-e-experience ko na kung pa’no siya as a leading man,” she says.

The two are aware of the pressure their launching project entails.

“Kailangan talaga naming i-prove sa kanila na kaya din namin (to carry a show),” Liza says. “And pressured din kami na siyempre maraming comparisons (with other love teams).”

Enrique is confident that “Forevermore” will do well. “Sobrang ganda ng script at ang buong team, talagang tinutukan nila every detail.

“They gave a lot of time and effort, so para sa ’kin super preparado ‘to…imposible na hindi (ang viewers) ma-i-involve o ma-i-in love sa mga characters namin.”

And that is what matters most to him because “’pag minamahal.. .minahal (na) nila ’yung characters namin, sunud-sunod na ’yun.”

Both hope “Forevermore” would translate to a longer and more solid team-up. (MNS)
