Jason Abalos says there is no reason for him to be uncomfortable playing leading man to Cristine Reyes because they are both professionals.
Jason Abalos said that he does not feel uncomfortable being the third wheel in the team up of real-life couple Cristine Reyes and Rayver Cruz in the upcoming teleserye, Reputasyon
, which will premiere on July 11. Jason reasoned, “Kasi alam ng lahat na nagtatrabaho lang kami,
so yung mga isyung mga ganyan, tungkol sa mga
love life, sa kanila na lang yon
He continued that he is actually good friends with Rayver so he is confident that it won’t be a problem to the latter that he will be the other leading man of Cristine. In a separate interview, Rayver described Jason being “like a brother” to him.
This is not the first time that Jason will be paired up with Cristine because they already teamed up in the 2008 teleserye
, Eva Fonda
. In Reputasyon
, Jason will portray Boyet, the guy who will help the family of Cristine’s character to regain their reputation after losing their family’s honor due to a turn of events.
Jason explained that he was glad when he found out that he was going to be working again with Cristine. Apart from the actress, Jason has already worked with his other co-stars so taping is a breeze. “Di na ko ganun kabago sa
showbiz [so] karamihan sa kanila nakatrabaho ko na rin
so masaya masayang kasama,
” he said. Also starring in Reputasyon
are Aiko Melendez, Jaclyn Jose, Lito Legaspi, and a lot more.
Jason also said that Cristine has gotten better as an actress compared to how she was in Eva Fonda. “Iba siya. Sobrang galing niya ngayon kumbaga dito sa Reputasyon ipanlalaban niya ‘yung
acting, ang galing talaga
