Empress reveals that she is closer to leading man Matt Evans because Felix Roco is the quiet type.
Empress feels overwhelmed by the success of her launching teleserye Rosalka. The cast and the production team of the series recently gathered for dinner to celebrate their victory. Empress expressed her gratitude to those who continuously watch Rosalka.
Aside from the beauty of the project, Empress said she is having a great time on the set because of her co-stars whom she had considers as close friends. “Sobrang saya namin dito. Parang friends na kaming lahat dito, hindi lang kami nina Matt (Evans) at Felix (Roco), pati na rin sina Isabel (Abiera), Ms. Mickey (Ferriols). In fairness kay Ms. Mila Del Sol friend na rin namin siya, ha ha ha! Kaya masaya kaming lahat kapag may taping. Walang mataas o mababa. Nagkaka time kami sa set na makapag-bonding na tawanan kami.”
Although the actors already meet thrice a week for the taping of Rosalka, Empress shared that they are also planning go out together so they can have fun minus stress of work. The only problem is their comflicting schedules. “Wala pang time e pero pinaplano na namin. Hindi lang kami nina Matt at Felix, kasama rin sina Ms. Mickey at si Tito Kier (Legaspi). Wala pang time ngayon pero gusto sana namin makalabas kaming magkakasama. Sa sobrang dami namin hindi magtugma ‘yung schedule. Si Nikki (Bacolod) may swimming siya.”
When asked about her leading men, the 17-year-old actress admitted that she is much closer to Matt than Felix. Empress is friends with Melissa Ricks, the usual ka-love team of Matt, and the three of them had worked together in Your Song presents Underage. “Kaya ako mas close kay Matt kasi matagal ko na siya kilala dahil nga kay Melissa na friend ko. Bago pa mag-start ‘yung Rosalka close na kami. Si Felix ngayon ko lang nakilala, e shy type pa kaya hindi pa katulad kay Matt. Pero natutuwa ako na slowly nagiging okay na kami ni Felix, hindi na siya super quiet talaga like before. Nago-open up na rin siya.”
