MANILA (Mabuhay) — Although they have already done two movies together, not to mention several TV dramas and even live shows, actress Kim Chiu still finds it “refreshing” to be working again with onscreen leading man Xian Lim.

“Parang ang tagal na naming hindi nagkatrabaho, so parang nakakatuwa. Kwentuhan, chikahan, mga ganyan,” Chiu said during the press conference for their latest movie “Past Tense,” which also stars Ai Ai delas Alas.

After honing their chemistry in teleseryes like “My Binondo Girl” and “Ina Kapatid Anak,” the rumored couple took their partnership to the big screen with the hits “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo?,” which was released in July 2013, and the even bigger follow-up “Bride for Rent” just last January.

After that, Chiu was given a new leading man, Coco Martin, for the recently concluded primetime ratings bonanza, “Ikaw Lamang.”

Before shooting started on “Past Tense,” Chiu noted that both she and Lim were busy with their respective concert tours abroad.

“Nasa Australia siya, nasa Canada kami, magkabilang mundo kami lately. So pagbalik namin ay everyday na kaming nagsho-shooting,” she said.

Chiu is hoping that their fans will once again show their support fo0r their upcoming movie.

“Ipinagdarasal namin na sana hindi nawala ang suporta nila sa amin. Sana kung paano nila kami sinuportahan sa ‘Bride For Rent,’ sana nandiyan pa din sila para suportahan ulit kami,” Chiu said.

“Siyempre may kaba sa lahat pero mas nakakakaba lang ngayon, kasi may mako-compare,” she added. “Pero iba naman ‘yung ginawa namin dati at ito sobra kaming kinakabahan at nilo-look forward namin na nandiyan pa din ang suporta nila.”

The actress once again credited their love team’s success to their loyal fans and supporters.

“Kung ano kami at kung paano kami minahal nang sumuporta sa amin ay hindi kami nagbabago. Hindi namin kino-compare ‘yung love team namin sa iba at utang na loob namin ang lahat sa fans, sobra silang sumuporta,” she said.

Released under Star Cinema, “Past Tense” opens in theaters nationwide on November 26. (MNS)
