"There's no dull moment with Kris," was how Diether Ocampo described his working relationship with his Dalaw leading lady Kris Aquino. During the pictorial of the said movie, Push.com.ph noticed Diether and Kris's closeness and rapport on the set.
"There is an instant chemistry so I am very happy that I am given this opportunity. Kapag kasama mo siya sa trabaho hindi ka mabo-bore although inuumaga kami sa shoot [dahil] binubusisi kasi namin talaga yung mga mabibigat na eksena. I like working with her, very professional, and walang reklamo, laging fresh kahit inuumaga na sa shoot," Diether revealed.
Push.com.ph also asked Diether about the kissing scene with Kris which created a buzz when the news came out. According to Diether, the scene is important to'nbsp; establish their characters as husband and wife. "Siyempre mag-asawa kami dito and it is a challenge for her [kasi] siyempre we hardly know each other, Wala kaming workshop, shoot agad, I was assuming na mahihirapan kami, pero with her, it was instant chemistry.'nbsp; [Yung kissing scene], okay naman, we're both happy it turned out well."
Since Kris has an annulment case pending, Push.com.ph asked Diether if he is ready to be romantically linked to her. "To be honest with you, medyo ina-anticipate ko na rin yung mga tanong na ganyan. Wala namang masama siyempre wala naman akong pananagutan at ganun din siya so parang let's see, Sabi ko sa kanya, gusto ko yung chemistry sa trabaho and I get to know more about her as we get along." Having said that, Diether affirmed that he is open to any possibility of a deeper friendship with Kris, but that at this point he is just hoping for the success of their movie. "Ayoko pangunahan yung mga pangyayari, Para sa akin I am thankful na nagkaroon kami ng opportunity na magkatrabaho. Very happy na at this point nage-enjoy kami pareho."
Diether also revealed that Kris inspires him. He has discovered a lot of things about her and he likes what he has discovered so far. "Marami akong mga nadi-discover, Kung sa ibang tao hindi siya maiintindihan yung mga ano niya'hellip; Meron siyang mga katangian na kung makikilala mo siya ng husto. Magugustuhan mo talaga siya as a person. Wala kong masasabi na hindi talaga ako magkandaugaga sa pag-describe sa kanya: magaling na artista, professional at magaling siyang makihalubilo sa tao, yun ang mga kaitangian na hindi ko ever nakita kasi first time nga namin nagkatrabaho. Hindi ako naso-sorpresa pero dito [sa movie] all the more na napahanga niya ako. Yes, definitely, kasi marami akong nakikita sa kanya na kahanga-hanga, sobrang hardworking," Diether said.
