Angel Aquino says that she values her friendship with her 'Magkaribal' co-stars Gretchen Barretto and Bea Alonzo.
While viewers can'rsquo;t help but be affected by the increasing tension among the characters in Magkaribal, Push.com.ph found the easy camaraderie between Angel Aquino and Gretchen Barretto a nice surprise during a set visit at One Esplanade last Wednesday night, October 20. In fact, Angel revealed that their closeness has reached the point where Gretchen has opened up about her personal life and even her colorful past. "I feel really honored because I don'rsquo;t think somebody just easily tells you about those things. For me it'rsquo;s something that I really have to take care of kasi trust is something you earn and it'rsquo;s not just given to you."
Angel further shared that Gretchen has inspired her to be a risk-taker knowing that the latter has experienced a lot of difficulties in life yet she still managed to be optimistic and stronger than ever. "Parang, 'lsquo;Wow! You really did all that? You went through all that?'rsquo; Parang ang tapang tapang niya. She's such a gutsy and adventurous person kaya every time she tells me her story I always ask myself, 'lsquo;Kaya ko ba gawin yun?'rsquo; Hindi ako ganon katapang katulad niya. I admire her for that. Hands down ako kay Gretchen.'nbsp; We'rsquo;ve also gone out together. Nag-enjoy na kami ng magkakasama that goes beyond our roles and duties as actors and actresses dito sa set. Siguro we'rsquo;re such happy people kaya we really connect."
Bea Alonzo is another person whom Angel really got close to on Magkaribal. "I'rsquo;ve realized na si Bea, she'rsquo;s such a deep person. She talks about life, relationships, books. She's very intellectual and a person who has a very sensitive heart. I just don'rsquo;t want to tell her pero parang nakikita ko yung sarili ko sa kanya. The way she takes care of her family, the way she plans her whole future, wala siyang iniiwanan. And also the way she talks about how she is in a relationship, sabi ko, 'lsquo;Oh my God! She's so much like me.'rsquo; Alam mo yung parang gusto mo siya alagaan? You really want to guide her to whatever she goes through in life."
