Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo says 'Idol' is successful because people involved in the show work together so well.
Sarah Geronimo felt relieved because of the successful pilot episode of Idol, her teleserye with Sam Milby and Coco Martin. This is also the singer-actress'rsquo;s comeback TV project after two years. "Kahit papaano kasi nakita namin na tinutukan ng mga tao 'lsquo;yung simula ng show," explained Sarah. "'rsquo;Yun na lang ho ang concern namin ma-maintain ang nasimulan namin. Kami naman nandito kami para pagbutihan ang trabaho namin, para pasayahin 'lsquo;yung mga tao, tuluy-tuloy po 'lsquo;yan."
Though she is already considered a Box Office Queen, Sarah shared that she felt worried that her latest TV project would not earn positive feedback. "Lahat naman po ng proyektong ginagawa ko, andyan 'lsquo;yung pressure kung tatanggapin ba ng tao," she said. "Matagal na rin po akong hindi umaarte lalo na sa TV." Sarah added that it gave her confidence knowing that she worked with competitive people, from her co-actors to their directors. "Nakakatuwa naman ang laking tulong kasi maganda ang working relationship ng bawat katrabaho ko sa set, magmula sa mga directors to co-stars. Nagre-reflect naman na pleasant [at] maayos 'lsquo;yung pagtatrabaho, nage-enjoy kami."
Sarah also gets to work with two new leading men in Idol, Sam and Coco. Since she gets to work with Sam on ASAP XV every Sunday, the young singer related that it was a breeze working with the Fil-American actor. "Si Sam matagal ko na pong nakakausap bago pa kami mag-start ng project na Idol, so okay naman, mas komportable na. Very happy kasi na-appreciate naman ng tao 'lsquo;yung team-up nga namin ni Sam. Marami daw kinilig so maraming salamat at sana mas mapakilig pa namin sila sa mga susunod na gabi," she said.
Though it is her first time to work with Coco, Sarah is thankful that they she and Coco have attended workshops together, which was a good icebreaker for the both of them. "First time naming magkita [nung] sa workshop, nakakatuwa kasi natanggap agad [namin 'lsquo;yung isa'rsquo;t isa] at 'lsquo;yung ilang [nawala agad]. Parang antagal na naming magkatrabaho, parang nag-click na agad, maganda," she described her working relationship with Coco.
Sarah is glad that she has good chemistry with both Sam and Coco. "Doble ho 'lsquo;yung happiness at 'lsquo;yung excitement ho sa part ko kasi nagiging effective 'lsquo;yung partnership ko sa parehong leading man. Exciting kasi inaabangan 'lsquo;yun kung saan talaga mai-endear 'lsquo;yung tao kung kay Lando (Coco) or Vince (Sam), kung kanino karapat-dapat si Billie at Jean (Sarah'rsquo;s two characters in the soap opera)."B
