Rayver Cruz shares that working with Cristine Reyes on 'Reputasyon' has brought them closer than ever.
Being chosen as the new leading man of Cristine Reyes in Reputasyon
came as a big surprise to Rayver Cruz since the said role was initially offered to Derek Ramsay and Jake Cuenca. But the young actor/dancer has no problem being the third choice for the role since he considers it a good opportunity to be working with his real-life sweetheart again.
“Basta natuwa na lang ako nung sinabi sa akin na kasama ako sa
show. Alam ko naman na
Cristine ang Reputasyon
. So excited ako na kasama ko ulit siya sa
next project ko
after Kristine Series. Bukod sa kumportable akong katrabaho siya, e talagang hinahangaan ko rin siya bilang isang magaling na aktres kaya
I feel privileged to be part of this soap,” said Rayver in a recent interview with Push.com.ph
Rayver further shared that he enjoys being around Cristine on the set because they learn more about each other as colleagues. “Para sa akin
challenging pa rin kahit alam mo na
girlfriend mo yung katrabaho mo. Iba naman kapag
normal na kaysa sa uma-
acting kayo in front of the camera. Ibang tao naman ang ginagampanan ni’yo. Ang ganda lang na mas nakikilala niyo yung isa’t isa sa trabaho ‘di ba? Tsaka mas
inspired kayo na pagbutihan yung
When asked about their favorite bonding time while they’re on standby on the set of Reputasyon
, Rayver revealed that Cristine usually catches up on lost sleep instead of chatting with him. “Wala, tulog siya lagi eh.
Actually, sakto lang. Kasi kapag
work, hindi naman kami masyadong sobrang magkasama kasi ayaw din namin bumitaw sa
role. Nagkikita naman kami ‘pag walang
taping. So kapag trabaho, trabaho. Pero kapag may mahaba kaming
break, ok lang magkulitan.
Luckily, they’re both primed for work since they’ve had the chance to take a vacation together in Bangkok last summer. Other than that, they love going on movie dates whenever they have spare time. In fact, Cristine recently posted on her Facebook a snapshot of her and Rayver taken after watching Green Lantern
last June 16.
“Yes, nagkaroon naman kami ng
-getaway. Next na plano namin magpunta sa
States para manood ng
NBA game, if possible yung
team sana nila
Kobe Bryant or Derek Rose. Dream ko kasi sila mapanood. Pero sa ngayon siyempre magpapaka
-busy muna kami sa
work,” Rayver added.
