Actor Enrique Gil has downplayed a possible romance with “Forevermore” leading lady Liza Soberano, noting she’s too young to commit to a romantic relationship.
“Sa ngayon hindi pa pwede kasi bata pa siya. She’s only 17 and she’s not at the right age yet. But alam naman niya na gusto ko siya. We’ll just see and wait na lang,” Enrique, 22, said.
Even though romance is out of the picture for now, Enrique shared he learned a lot of new things about Liza since they started shooting the primetime series.
“Mas naging close kami and nalaman ko yung story ng buhay niya. Now I know more about her, yung ugali niya. Mas naging deeper kasi dati parang ang ganda at mabait, pero ngayon I learn more habang tumatagal yung pagsasama namin,” he said.
“Yung likeability is andoon talaga. When you get to know the person more, nahuhulog yung loob mo. Lalo na pag nakita mo na ganito pala siya ka genuine na tao.”
But Enrique reiterated that their main focus now is their respective showbiz careers.
Meanwhile, Enrique said he is thankful to all their fans for their unending support for “Forevermore”. Enrique said he’s also surprised that his on-screen team up with Liza was warmly welcomed by the audience.
“Sobrang saya kasi none of us really expected na mainit yung magiging tanggap ng tao sa amin. Sobrang thankful lang kami,” he said.
“Nung una may doubts kasi first time namin na magiging mag-partner and wala ka talagang assurance kasi hindi mo naman talaga malalaman kung ano ang gusto ng tao, but buti na lang talaga, nasagot ang mga prayers namin and nagustuhan nila.”
Enrique added that of all the shows he’s done on television, “Forevermore” is his favorite.
“Masaya yung experience kasi hindi kami nagte-tape sa mga usual places sa Manila and lagi kaming nasa Baguio. In a way it’s a vacation and at the same time work na din. It’s something different talaga. Iba yung work experience,” he said.
“Forevermore” airs weeknights on ABS-CBN. (MNS)
