Coco Martin is excited to work with new leading lady Julia Montes


102611-coco_main.jpgAlthough he was once romantically linked to Julia Montes, Coco Martin chose to downplay the issue especially now that they would be working together on  ABS-CBN’s upcoming teleserye, Walang Hanggan. The multi-awarded actor further shared with Push.com.ph that there’s no awkwardness between Julia and him since they’ve known each other for quite some time now. “Wala naman ilangan. Sabi ko nga dati, si Julia nung nakikita ko sobrang bata pa, ngayon dalaga na siya. Sobrang excited ako makatrabaho siya kasi medyo bagets pa siya ng konti nung nagkatrabaho kami sa kabilang channel,” said Coco during the story conference of Walang Hanggan at Dali Restaurant last October 24.

Asked if he’s ready to deal with new intrigues once they become a love team, Coco maintained that he’s very professional when it comes to his leading ladies. “Handa ka ba Julia? Ako naman hindi ko plinaplano. Depende yun sa takbo ng soap at kung paano kami magkakatrabaho. Pagdating naman sa mga nagiging leading lady ko, mataas ang respeto ko sa kanila at sa lahat ng nakakatrabaho ko.

Some fans were disappointed though that he would no longer be paired with Maja Salvador after their successful team-up in Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. But Coco insisted that it shouldn’t be an issue because he doesn’t really have a permanent love team to begin with. “Sa akin naman kasi, hindi naman ako yung kailangan every project dapat may ka-love team. Ang lagi kong pinaghahandaan, yung proyekto. Hindi naman na itong tao lang na ito ang gusto ko makatrabaho. Actually, hindi ako gaanong [mapili] sa kung sino makakatrabaho ko, mas nilu-look forward ko yung project na gagawin ko.

Is he still friends with Maja? “Oo naman. Kumbaga, mahaba yung pinagsamahan e. Hindi naman yun isang taping lang. Siyempre habang tumatagal lalong nade-develop yung friendship.”
