Empress finds Ejay Falcon a thoughtful leading man


Empress confirmed that she is good friends with Ejay Falcon who'rsquo;s slated to be her new ka-love team in the upcoming action series Guns and Roses. For someone who'rsquo;s been in the biz for many years, the young actress felt that it'rsquo;s only right to help a newbie feel comfortable around other stars. "Totoo naman yun, kinakausap ko naman siya. Kasi nga tahimik siya so ako na 'lsquo;tong lumalapit na, 'lsquo;Uy okay ka lang ba? Okay naman ba yung showbiz?'rsquo; Kasi ganon naman talaga 'lsquo;pag bago ka tapos ikaw naman mas nakakaalam so lalapitan mo talaga. I was just being friendly. Siguro naman happy siya na makasama ako kasi parang isa din ako sa tina-trust niya."

As previously reported on Push.com.ph, Empress was one of the people who helped Ejay bridge the gap between him and Erich Gonzales. The two had a falling out when they worked together in Katorse two years ago. But so far Empress has nothing but good words to describe Ejay. "Ang pagkakakilala ko sa kanya, tahimik, 'lsquo;di palabiro. Pero yung konting time na magkasama kami sa mga rehearsal at sa look test para sa bagong show namin, maalaga siya, tsaka 'lsquo;di siya nahihiya sa akin. Kung nahihiya man siya, sa akin pa rin siya lumalapit kasi alam niyang kami ang magtutulungan ."

Being paired with different leading men in her shows is an exciting challenge according to Empress. Her last on screen partner was Felix Roco in Rosalka.'nbsp; "Hindi ibig sabihin na 'lsquo;pag love team 'lsquo;di na pwedeng naghihiwalay kasi ang artista naman 'lsquo;di lang sa isang partner umiikot, dapat sa lahat talaga. Mas maganda nga kung madaming makakasama to gain new friends tsaka ibig sabihin tuloy-tuloy ang trabaho."
