Diego Loyzaga talks about his friendship with Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes


070511-diego_main.jpgJust two months after Diego Loyzaga joined show business, he already has a phenomenally popular teleserye (Mara Clara) under his belt. Now, he’s working on another TV project with his Mara Clara co-stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes entitled Growing Up (This Is My Life). “I am very honored to be able to work with them again. Siyempre alam naman natin kung gaano sila sinuportahan ng viewers noon sa Mara Clara. Nagpapasalamat ako sa ABS-CBN at Star Magic. I couldn’t have been in a better position. I’m very lucky na sila ang makakatrabaho ko ulit. And hopefully mas matagal ang bonding namin dito,” he said in an interview with Push.com.ph last June 28.

Although he’s good friends with both young actresses, Diego shared that he talks more often with Kathryn since they used to be schoolmates in OB Montessori at Greenhills. “They’re both my friends. It’s just that mas kilala ko si Kathryn. Kasi at school, they always talk about her. People would always ask me, ‘Diego, kamusta na si Kathryn? Is she still going to study?’ Ako naman, ‘Wow! Ite-text ko ba siya? Sasabihin ko, ‘Ma’am, pa-CR,’ tapos itetext ko sa kanya na, ‘Ikaw na naman ang pinag-uusapan sa classroom ko.’ Yung mga ganong kulitan lang. Kami rin ni Julia we talk kapag magkikita kami sa mga thanksgiving parties ng Mara Clara noon.”

Diego said that he has no trouble adjusting to Julia as his ka-love team in Growing Up since she has always been a helpful co-star even during their Mara Clara days. “Sobrang bait niya. Nung bago pa lang ako sa Mara Clara hanggang ngayon, kapag may problema ako sa acting or hindi ko masabi yung Tagalog lines ko, tumutulong silang dalawa ni Kathryn. Actually lahat naman ng co-stars namin ganon. Siyempre nung una, my friends would ask me, ‘Maganda ba siya?’ Siyempre maganda naman talaga si Julia in person. And of course, she has a totally different character in real life. Kasi some would think that just because she played Clara on TV, she also behaves the same way off cam, pero hindi ganon. Pareho silang mabait ni Kathryn.”

The 16-year-old refused to say though who between Kathryn and Julia is more attractive for him. But when asked to describe his ideal girl, Diego admitted that he likes morena girls. “Kasi ‘di ba ang typical na Pinoy gusto maputi tsaka long hair. Everyday nakikita ko ‘yan sa Australia e dahil dun ako lumaki. Dito sa Manila, siyempre gusto ko naman yung Pinay. Pero wala akong sinabing pangalan ha, ’yan lang ang sagot ko,” Diego added with a laugh.”
